The great bra fitting fiasco

The great bra fitting fiasco

Previously I have discussed the many complexities of underwear shopping. First there’s the teensy knickers that leave your bottom looking like two enraged sows simultaneously trying to escape through a cat flap. Then there’s the issue of suspenders. (When to admit you don’t really understand how they work and at what point to ask what...

When fashion goes wrong

I love shopping. I love dressing up in a brand new dress that makes your bum look like two softly boiled peaches having a cuddle. And I love galloping merrily towards the nearest bar to ruin it all with cocktails and debauchery. But the more magazines I read, the more I realise high fashion is...

But just like paint by numbers, it’s always advisable to follow some basic rules of conduct. Unless you’d like to look more ‘primary school picture of a donkey’ than ‘Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece’,...
