I’m not ashamed to say that two of my absolute, ultimate favourite pastimes are getting dressed up and prancing around in front of cameras. For some sickeningly stylish
liars people, outfitting oneself is a case of nonchalantly grabbing whatever’s handy and being photographed is a total bore but I openly revel in all of it. After all, I probably wouldn’t have started posting pictures of myself and my ensembles on the internet (bit weird when you put it like that) the following year if I didn’t!? Anyway, as you may remember I spent a fabulous few days eating, drinking and generally being indulgent in Ibiza with River Island last Summer and, not that the two are remotely connected, their collections have been going from strength to strength ever since. Given the fact that SS14 is unbelievably covetable, the team awesome and I do love cameras, when River Island asked me to star in a masterclass video with the lovely Marcus Jaye of TheChicGeek.co.uk, obviously the answer was a big fat YES! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, my masterclass was all about dressing for a first date. This was something my nearest and dearest found simply hilarious because my love life’s non existent and the fact I’m clearly going to die alone surrounded by small dogs and expensive handbags gives them endless LOLS. However, I maintain that my lack of love life is nothing to do with my ability to select super cute datewear and I hope this video proves it!
