My trip to MacCulloch & Wallis (on the right of this photo) didn’t turn out quite as planned. I turned the corner and got the shock of my life. Unbelievably, no one was hurt in this incident but it really rattled me to see this.
Instead of spending my pennies in this shop, I went to John Lewis and bought some beautiful lining for my coat. I then wandered down Berwick Street in search of underlining. I didn’t find any, but I didn’t mind too much – average prices in those shops seem to be about £50 a metre. I’d love to know who can afford or justify these spends! I mean, even if I could afford it I’m not sure I wouldn’t begrudge it. There’s gotta be another way… Or perhaps these are the shops you go to for that once-in-a-lifetime dress. Dunno. They’re clearly thriving!
In other news, I made another V1179! Don’t feel obliged to comment; this is my third make, after all. It’s an almost faithful rip off of Leopard Anchor’s version. Hey, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
And finally, check out the nail transfers! I’m old enough to know better but I really don’t care. This stuff is FUN. I’m at the Cambridge Literary Festival today. I hope my nails don’t scare the dons.
