Today I was outside and it was sunny and warm and there were daffodils coming out along the river and it felt like spring was coming for the first time in a long time. This winter has gone on far too long; all I want to do is leave the house in jeans and a t-shirt and not have to worry about tactical-packing an umbrella and 5 extra layers. Sadly it's not quite the season yet for shorts and flip flops, but I reckon it's time to bust out the shorts-and-tights combo again.

First and foremost, apologies for my unexplained absence of almost a month. (How did that happen?!). Nothing life-threatening or life-changing has come my way; just a killer combination of school, French exchange, rowing, life in general which has served to disconnect me somewhat from the fashion world.

But I'm not sure that wasn't a good thing. Sometimes the way fashion is constantly moving ononon is a bit tiring, to be honest; I know it's the nature of the beast, but I'm just starting to enjoy winter and wearing my new boots, and suddenly they want us to start thinking about spring-and even next winter! Wait-what? I've still got couture to look at! And pre-fall! Gah!

So having a little break from the blogsphere has been quite nice, really. Now I feel like I can start looking at the A/W '11 collections at my own pace, without getting snippets and pre-formed opinions from other people's posts-and generally just reigniting my interest in fashion as and when I feel like it.

Just two more things to say, peeps:
1. Vogue UK was really quite good this month (see below)
2. Bloglovin has a sneaky method of deleting posts which I can't work out, but which is most mysterious. I've been absent for 3 weeks, and my number of unread posts has decreased. Strange eh?
Anything else I should know about? Some crazy new subversive trend? Evil eyes between Carine and Emmanuelle at NYFW? Let me know!
