Riding along in my automobile...
I think tomo (weather permitting) I'll break out my fuzzy gillet that I got in the sales in Valencia. I love it but I've only had it on a few times. It's one of those things that you can only wear for limited times: like in October here, when it's cold but not too cold, or March (ditto), but you can't wear it in summer cos you'd sweat like a yeti in a sauna, and you can't wear it in winter cos 1. If it rains you'll smell like a wet dog and 2. you'd have freezing arms. So... if tomorrow is anything like today weather-wise then it'll be getting a dusting off.
I'm almost finished the bio of Coco Chanel that I got for Xmas, and lately I've been 'channelling' her look - lots of stripy t-shirts with high waisted black trousers, or all black with only my pearls on. Or my wee black turban! But somehow, I think, the giant yeti coat is not in keeping with the Chanel ethos. Ah well, you have to mix it up a bit, eh?
