My life has been a sartorial wasteland lately. What happens when the temperature drops dramatically and you want to be warm and cosy at home? Yes, that’s right, your boiler breaks down. This seems to be a constant theme in my life and this time just to add a bit of excitement into the mix, the boiler has an intermittent fault which has the engineer flummoxed, so sometimes we have heat and sometimes we don’t – central heating Russian roulette! Given that I have some kind of mutant circulation which causes my body to be cold even at the height of summer (I was the only person in Sydney wearing a cardigan on a 35 degree summers day!) I am not enjoying life much at the moment. Harrumph.
So I have been wearing layer upon layer upon layer, which is not a good look and makes me feel grotty. Sigh. At the weekend though we had a family lunch in a house with proper heating so I was able to shed a few layers at least. I wore a long-sleeved silk thermal vest, a silk top, my ASOS sequin jacket, my Gerard Darel blazer, which is one of my favorite items of clothing ever -look at those shoulders! MiH paris, and my Edelman Adenas. On my nails i had Chanel rouge Noir with a layer of Lamcome Le Vernis on top. I love the colours of Chanel nail varnish, but no matter what I do it chips within hours.
I’m trying a new layering approach today, nothing slouchy or oversized, I have realized that is bad for morale!
