Stay stylish

As I was leav­ing Sel­fridges the other day, head­ing in the di­rec­tion of Bond Street, I was taken by a beau­ti­fully at­tired young girl, aged about six or seven, with braided hair and clutch­ing a small blue purse.

She gazed up to her lov­ing fa­ther and said, “You know, Daddy, I’d rather have a dress than a house.”

To­tally a per­son after my own heart who, even at that ten­der age, en­cap­su­lates the idea that what you put on your body can help make life a lit­tle more en­chant­ing.

This is the fi­nale for The Closet and I wanted to thank you, dear reader, for be­ing a part of this won­der­ful word jour­ney from this stylist, whose vo­cab­u­lary is the vis­ual.

A huge thank you to Stephen Brook whose con­cept it was and has been by my side en­cour­ag­ing all the way.

So go forth and make as­tute pur­chases and fill your wardrobe with things that, al­though not al­ways en­tirely es­sen­tial, bring un­told joy.

Stay stylish.
