Mac and Tosh..


Parodying the great words of Truman Capote and Holly Golightly.. would you reach in the drawer there and hand me my purse as no girl should write this without lipstick…


And no girl should be out in London in the changeable month of April without a Macintosh (and preferably a vintage Burberry one)



In this fast spinning world of trends it remains the epitome of a timeless stalwart.


I so need one in my wardrobe – a need and a want.  I think I spotted a rack of them (possibly not Burberry’s but who knows..) in Camden Lock when I went with the kids…but there was no time to forage..

A FOREIGN AFFAIR, Marlene Dietrich, 1948

Sigh. I’m thinking of the future and speaking of the past..which possibly defines the word ‘Classic’. Get me back to Camden..

    I have to admit that I don’t have one but Mr O has two – one cream and one blue and they are ever so dashing. The cream one needs constant spot cleaning though.

    I have….three (Tan, Black and Denim) and I rock them all the time. Do it, do it, do it!
    PS. M has the classic Burberry in black – fantastic.
