With no What We Wear on Monday for more than a month, we just want to reassure you that Cyndy and I have, indeed, been wearing clothes. But it has simply been too difficult to write the blog with Cyndy in Australia and me in London.
As you might imagine, with a nine-hour time difference between the UK and Melbourne, Cyndy was almost at the end of her day when I was starting mine. In other words, as I was embarking on my Monday, Cyndy was almost on Tuesday, and we felt that What We Wear Monday and Tuesday When One of Us Is In Melbourne and One In London seemed a bit of an unwieldy blog title…
So, now we are both back on the same day (and in the same city), I am wearing a grey silk dress with flower print by Noli, with a black zip-trim jacket by Jaeger and suede wedge cage sandals by Kurt Geiger. With all that print, I decided on the Coco Chanel approach (take something off), so no jewellery – though I did plan to wear my Perspex-and-gold leaf Laurent Guillot ring but just forgot to put it on. Don’t you hate that!
Cyndy is wearing a cream silk satin knot blouse from LK Bennett, with a new leather pencil skirt from Pure, which she bought just last week (at the reduced price of £160 – down from £199) and already adores. Take a look at her skirt now . She is wearing mock croc leather boots, also from LK Bennett, and earrings from a vintage range at Topshop.
