Sneak preview of new book: A Life in Frocks
I’m finally able to talk about the new book, and am starting to feel really excited about seeing it in print in just a few short months… finished copies hit shelves on 1 November.
What’s it all about? Well… for as long as I can remember, I’ve been passionate about clothes. They are my first, and most enduring, love affair to date. I buy far too many glossy magazines, and puzzle over how I can spend half my life shopping, yet still find myself standing in front of a vast rack of outfits each morning, despairing that I have nothing to wear. Over the years, clothes have comforted me, given me confidence, lured potential lovers, made me invisible, secured jobs, aged me and given back my youth. And yes, they have betrayed me.
A Life in Frocks is about the ‘divine obsession’, a woman’s love for clothes. In particular, it’s meant to be a personal, entertaining, joyous – and seductive – exploration of the significance of clothes, filtered through my lifelong sartorial infatuation.
