Now, I am far from a fashion blogger. I am far from a fashion person, fullstop. I am so far from a fashion person that I was once asked to speak on a panel entitled 'From Fashionista to Frump' as... wait for it... the frump. (Deborah Thomas was the fashionista. I liked her outfit.)
Which leads me to think that I was invited to the launch of Jules's site because I am so tragically in need of styling. Aside from being outfitted for a couple of photo shoots (in outfits I didn't feel comfortable in, mainly because they were being held together at the back with bulldog clips) I have never had professional advice about my wardrobe. As a result, I tend to wear the same kind of thing day in day out.
Nine times out of ten if you see me in the street I will be wearing blue jeans with some sort of loose flowy top. I have tried to wear 'pants' - you know, proper 'trouser' type things - but they never, ever feel right. I stick to blue jeans and then more blue jeans, with the occasional black jeans thrown in for excitement. But only very occasionally. I wouldn't want to disturb the equilibrium.
And that's pretty much my wardrobe
And if it's really hot I will wear a dress. Short, shift dresses. Always short shift dresses. Because god knows what would happen if I wore a long dress. Or an a line dress. Or.... god forbid... a skirt and top.
I know that lots of women love shopping, and in a sense I do, too. But I think that my idea of shopping is slightly different to theirs. Women (correct me if I'm wrong) tend to shop in order to find new and thrilling clothes to complement and transform their wardrobe. I shop in order to find more of exactly the same things I already have, because anything else is scary and I don't like being pushed out of my comfort zone.
So clearly I am in need of styling, and perhaps Jules will be the one to do it. And that's cool, because she was wearing a short, shift dress at her launch. Which means she and I obviously have a lot in common.
Do you wear the same things all the time??? Or are you exciting and adventurous???
