Out of focus

I had a truly scabby day, largely due to a the station master who watched me run for a train and then let it go before I could get to the platform. I missed a launch and wasted five hours. There's still a bitter taste in my mouth that no quantity of stir friend vegetables and brown rice can shift. 

The annoying thing is that I spent a lot of time planning my wardrobe: I had to look sharp and I had to be able to travel comfortably. The trousers are Stella McCartney, the jacket's a Max Mara (thrifted, $30, still with the hang tags in place - bliss!) and the t-shirt is from Target in Las Vegas. The shoes are Aerosoles and the second pair I've had in that style. Tres comfortable. 
My learned friend, the Shillings paparazzo, says the photo is out of focus but it's not him, it's me.  I was still blurred from the disorganised morning. Nat, toting a green Mulberry Maggie bag and wearing a Cynthia Steffe dress and Pierre Hardy shoes atop Wolford tights, is much clearer: 

My plan is to have a much better day tomorrow. 

Did you have a good day? 


  1. Sorry 'bout the train mishap. Some days are just like that. Put it behind you and look forward to tomorrow. They'll always be another occasion to look chic.

  2. Too true, Shy - today was a much better day.

  3. Had to smile Station Master!!!here in the UK no station staff at all out here in the sticks!!
    Great outfit,Stella MaCartney wow! Ida

  4. Station Master sounds perverse. May karma visit him soon.

  5. Hello Ida! My station master works at a very busy station in the centre of the city, like Victoria. Sadly we've lost all our country station masters too.

    Charlotte, I had exactly the same thought. I feel better about him today ... but only a little.
