Dear L,

I have to be upfront and honest. I’m really angry at you.

How dare you

look like such a model in your perfect pair of denim shorts?! I thought we were blogging because we were both too short to walk the catwalk, but maybe that’s all been in my head and you’re actually 5 ” 10.

Speaking of catwalks and despondency, two of my favourite things happened in the month that has been (aside from our awesome express week), London Fashion Week and The Academy Awards. As such, I thought that perhaps I could mish-mash them together in my own “B’s Best of the Best Awards”. You may have noticed that I chose alliteration over descriptiveness there, and so I shall briefly explain the premise before launching in: London Fashion Week’s best designers’ best looks (that’s a mouthful, sorry), and the corresponding movie outfits that they remind me of. Full disclosure, this could be a long post. Go make a cup of tea.

1. Whistles vs Revolutionary Road

Anyway, I have to go hit the road for my first, long delayed driving lesson. Hopefully not literally. Best of luck at uni today, L!

Love, B
