You know my new ‘do? Well, this was the outfit I wore to Trevor Sorbie the day it happened. I’m going to level with you, I didn’t intend to come out with aubergine tinged locks but once I did, I realised how perfectly the matched my outfit. This got me thinking about the power of clothes. A great outfit can make you feel like Miranda Kerr fresh from a fortnight of yoga and kale smoothies. The job, the man, the last free seat on the tube, you can have and/or do whatever you desire thanks to your sheer unadulterated fabulousness. A not-so-great outfit however, has the power to render even the most self assured among us a wreck and this is something I can very much identify with at the moment. Generally speaking I take ten minutes max to get ready for every occasion from lectures to awards ceremonies but recently it’s been a different story. There are few things more irritating than trying on the entire contents of your wardrobe ┬áto find that everything feels wrong when on and you’ve totally lost the ability to coordinate. Then you check the clock and realise you’re already late… Meltdown impending. I think, or at least, hope I got my groove back with this outfit, even if I do look slightly like a giant blueberry.

Love Ella. X

  1. I noticed the hair colour first and thought that it goes well with the outfit. Outfit can definitely make or break your day.

    10. Mins to get ready, girl you are a superwoman. I take ages and especially it it is a special occasion then I take very long.
