How can it be Thursday when I was intending to do this every day of Fashion Week?!??!
I was blogging like a maniac on and doing my how to get through fash week guide and then neglected you. 
Well, I neglected you less than the twittering that had to end mid week. My mobile couldn't do it and I couldn't cope (or honestly see the point). 
Just about to dash to lunch but didn't want to leave you for so long. 
I will send links to my show musings and will talk about Stephen Jones later. 
I must start my new books.  Today I had the windows measured in the office.  So many ways to avoid knuckling down. Off to see He's Just Not That into You tonight. Believe me I could have told you this for free...

Check out I am going to be blogging for them from the shows... and I am going to try and not neglect my own dot dot com.... I am afraid though I am one of the last people in the world to not own a Blackberry or iphone... Like to play a bit hard to get, but sometimes I think I am too good at playing hard to get.... Got the shoes and hat sorted for Stephen Jones' opening... only debate is the dress - pink hat, pink shoes - pink dress or LBD? Galliano or Alaia? Must get the straight mans opinion.... 
London Fashion Week has started... drove past the tents today. I then got totally distracted by a picture of a pair of Manolos and ended up in his store... Well looking the part is all part of the parcel.  I don't know why anyone ever goes anywhere else.   Cinderella stop here.
Must get out to the exhibition and have a look at the stands - I like doing this early at the weekend as there are always so so many more aisles than you'd think. 
I hope that London is hungry, creative, buzzing... I remember when I was a student I would plot and plan and build up for this week for months... You know blagging in was half the buzz of going... I wonder how many people are blagging it this year.  They are the ones I want to watch...

made my requests for fashion week.  hate that part.  its like asking to go to a wedding and you know you shouldn't do that.... but if you wait to be asked what if they don't?? and what if you really do have to sit next to the ugly step sister or worse a spiteful editor??! Its no wonder people rather watch it on the web... I might keep some of the painkillers I got from my teeth extraction for Paris. The need may be great. 
Just watched the Brits.  Where did all these bands come from? As for the clothes.  Blip. 
Count Down to Stephen Jones opening... I went and bought an Alaia dress in case I don't fit in the proposed Galliano sample when it arrives... can you imagine??

Love the blatant disregard for the credit what in NY - Thakoon sent fur flying in all shades and Marc seems to be doing some Transvision Vamp remake... Its all about restyling the recession. Not sure this Confessions of a Shopaholic really knows the meaning of splurge...and before you shake your fist at me don't... I am an observer... 
love conquers all things except poverty and toothache... so said Mae West... she's right about the tooth ache.  But drawing a veil over this (quite literally a Stephen Jones one...) its all about hats. 
Went to Great Queen Street to pick a fondant fancy for his V&A opening Monday night.  Went thinking Marie Antoinette, left with what is going to have to be a modern spin on Barbara Cartland... eck gads.... No - its GORGEOUS - by name and by design and will go marvellously with the spring summer Galliano dress I have borrowed... 
Its hard work being Fabulous - to quote - which seems odd - Victoria Beckham  - but truth be told I quite agree... Why be shy ????

There is a strange mist around fashion week at the moment - maybe its because I am not there - maybe its because I am a lot of painkillers but the new season seems very far away.  Time to start a new book project I think.  I haven't actually written one in a few years.  Editing just seems to be endlessly tweaking and trimming. 
Eastenders about to start.  Better stop.  Priorities. 
New York Fashion Week.  Thakoon, Marc, and I am sat in bed with a jaw full of stitches, brilliant timing to get the wisdom teeth out this week....
