A Touch Of Couture
The weathers miserable, the 'new season' magazines are telling me that denim is 'in' which is the same as last season. Although this season it's without stretch - pure denim as some would say.
So drinking my fresh basil tea, inhaling my Japanese incense - I want to escape. Just for a second, I want to pretend the washing doesn't need doing or that I don't need to check that there is food in for school lunches - because yes, I have a family.
So my simple and ultimate treat is to look at new season fashion - Couture. If I could ever afford it, I'm still not sure I could justify it but maybe just one piece - if I could afford it.
And this is my treat looking at what is unavailable to me and yet allowing myself the pleasure of choosing just one piece - just one treat!
This time it would be from Giambattista Valli, A simple number but big, masses of tulle and yet light. It transports me to somewhere that weather permits such frivolity, that space and time allow me to twist and turn, dance and dream.
