I’ve been going through my wardrobe and despite an abundance of clothes of course I don’t have a stitch to wear!

My collection has definitely seen better days, I feel a bit of a scruff in them now to be honest (Isn’t that the point, you might say?). When I’m lounging I want to be comfortable but I still want to look like I made a bit of an effort in the style department. I don’t want to look like one of those celebrities that get papped arriving into LAX looking like some kind of bedraggled castaway, marooned on an island for years, when they actually just came of the 11 hour flight from London.
