Autumn is here. I know this because I've already got my regular trans-seasonal cold. Making the bitter pill of impending winter easier to swallow: The first sighting of parrot tulips this week, burgundy Bass Weejuns, which bring my current shoe rotation up to 100% mens / unisex shoes. But that's ok, because I'm still into silly girl stuff like the new *FRENZY* nail polish from Chanel. I didn't know it was a thing until the girl at the Chanel counter told me I was lucky they'd just got a new batch, which would be gone in an hour. I'm also in quite a lather about this cute little wool navy Sessun top with tobacco coloured Peter Pan collar, cuffs and hem. Autumnal pursuits: reading The Gentlewoman - obviously; picking blackberries with Little Friend Susan and drinking tea out of my new fave stoneware mug.
On the subject of mens / unisex and somewhat related to the above: I've been skulking around mens clothing shops, looking at socks and knitwear usually, and I bought the Bass Weejuns at Present. They happen to have them in girl sizes, which was lucky, cos I have tiny delicate feet. When I look at mens shoes is the only time I wish I had bigger, sturdier feet two sizes larger. Why don't more mens labels just make the EXACT SAME THING in womens sizes? It would be such a winner. Anyway, this mens shop in Greenwich called Meet Bernard has opened a womens shop next door and I love it. It's where I got the Sessun top from and they have just the kind of basic, well made, laid back cute, chosen by the boys, girls stuff I love to wear.
