writes about clothes, shoes, hair, make-up, accessories, fashion - anything that's appearance-related, and a good deal else, because appearances are just the beginning.

In spite of being wildly distracted by the sheer number and weight of belongings strewn across my bed and floor, and the challenge of getting them all into one suitcase weighing no more than 23 kilos, I thought I ought to say something about Kate. Yes, that Kate - the one who's marrying the prince person. Because as well as coming in for a royal title, she's now our newly crowned Queen of Style. Apparently.
But, checking out The Style Police, I found that I don't have to - they've done the job for us. So over and out on that subject, and back to the packing.
I'm a writer. Sometimes I write fiction and sometimes I'd rather do something else, like earn money, travel or dance tango. Whatever I do, I never stop looking. So this blog is about looking to write, writing to see, and seeing to think. I was once the kind of feminist who believed it was wrong to delight in such things. Now I'm the kind of feminist who doesn't believe that at all. I will never, as Linda Grant puts it, go beige into that good night.
