Had to write and tell you that I went shopping yesterday and single mindedly looked for my new black ie; dark olive. At first it was very tricky to ignore the solid blacks that were as usual available in just about every design you could imagine but eventually I struck gold, well olive. Bought myself pants (David Lawrence), camisole (French Connection) and tailored blouse (Table Eight). The camisole was sort of khaki, pants labelled bitter choc and blouse rather mysteriously java. Anyway, wore it all out to a party last night and felt like a million dollars! I really did look different and got lots of compliments. I’m definitely a complete convert and shall try hard to never wear black again. (Might take a while to get enough new clothes to replace the current wall to wall black….)
