seeing john humphrys in the flesh and my friend gigi being invited to sit in 'the chair' during the break made it the best day of my life. 5. my green suede and snakeskin heels at my end of year ball. 6. armed with flask of coffee and layers just before going to the library. 7. ashburne...

(not to be confused with body bags..rather less morbid) remember back in 2006 when the way you wore your it-bag was just as crucial as the bag itself? the 'resting in the crook of your elbow' model carry look became the order of the day but I much prefer the unfussy 'cross-body' way-leaves your

For this reason the pyjama style jackets that Topshop have been rolling out recently have a nice 'beddish' quality about them without leaving the wearer psychologically confused (yes) about their state of undress. Winter seems to be the solution when layering is the saviour of tricky trends...
