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.

The wrong end of the stick. Er, needle
Since I clicked on the cover of Knit Your Own Royal Wedding, a couple of weeks ago, Amazon has pigeonholed me as a knitting fanatic avid to hear of any and all new books on the subject. Here's the latest.
I remember on some sitcom or other, a man newly out of a long marriage asking a buddy, "Whatever happened to pubic hair?" I seem to be equally out of touch. Whatever happened to jersies and scarves? Does everyone now knit ... these things?
Whatever they are, one thing's for sure - romantic they ain't!
All right, I'll stop now. But where are the instructions for knitting a boyfriend?
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.
