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 to 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
