In case it wasn't obvious, I'm really into turbans at the moment!! I don't know what it is about them, but get it right and I think they're the height of sophisticated but laid back 40s glamour - what's not to like!? I got some gorgeous textured / almost-flock-but-more-understated black and purple-grey silk for this one.
It sounds antisocial, but I love pottering round a gallery in my own company: it's a real treat! For obvious reasons there was no photography allowed inside the exhibition, and in my usual disarray, I left my moleskin in my bag when I put my bag into the clockroom, but those failures aside - GO AND SEE THE ISABELLA BLOW EXHIBITON at Somerset House. Seriously. It's literally the best show I've ever been to, and when I caught sight of the first Philip Treacy hat (it took me by surprise) I gasped and burst into (rapidly suppressed!!) tears. They're something else. I can't decide whether I'm hugely inspired to aspire, or so overwhlemed that everything seems hopeless! I'm erring on the side to the former ;) The catalogue is my Christmas present - when I own a coffee table, it'll live on it.
