Firstly I want to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post. It’s so nice to get feedback and I want to assure you all that the offending pearls have been consigned to the back of a dusty drawer. The search continues for a suitable white or grey draped top and/or a tee shirt with a good quality cotton to conceal the lumps and bumps (with thanks to middle age, an aversion to exercise and an addiction to Cadbury’s Crème Eggs). I shall keep you posted.
Today I bring you some wonderful news courtesy of my personal bible, In Style magazine. Word has emerged that the owners of H&M are opening a new store & Other Stories, which will be positioned as a mid-range between H&M and COS. Honestly, I was truly excited by this as although I’m not really convinced by H&M (oops, I’ve offended everyone again, haven’t I? I’m afraid I’ve almost consigned H&M to the same bracket as Primark) I’ve always been a huge fan of COS (despite their appalling website photographs) and will be dying to see this new range. I’ve always maintained that COS is a great shop for those of us with psoriasis as although they stock a lot of black, a great proportion of their clothes are of a paler palette which is perfect. Of course, chances are it won’t hit our Irish shores for some time to come, but they will have an online shop and let’s face it … it’s a good excuse to plan a little trip to London. I will definitely be keeping an eye on this development.

Finally on today’s little mish-mash of items, I bring you the cami-secret. My sister put this in my stocking as a great joke and we both fell about the place laughing at such a ridiculous piece of … well … clothing I guess! It is basically a small piece of fabric that attaches to your bra, enabling you to wear low-cut tops as it gives the appearance of a camisole underneath. When I returned to Dublin, I found it at the bottom of my suitcase and decided to try it out one day when I was at home. Purely for research you understand. I reckoned it would be up around my neck within an hour. Amazingly, I was wrong. It stayed in place all day; a day that included the exertions of domestic drudgery. I just thought I would bring it to your attention as perhaps it might be of interest to those of you who worry about excessive cleavage exposure. Not a worry in my life sadly … I spent my teenage years wishing for cleavage!
Have a good week
