The Oath

I’ve decided to outdo any challenge set before.  My friends will think I’m crazy.  Probably, think I’ll fail.  But I won’t!  I hope.

This is me.


This is my Oath

From this great day, I swear by Almightly Westwood* that, I shall never enter Topshop again.  I will be unfaithful to Vogue’s ‘Dash Before Cash’, I will cut up all store cards and remove from my internet favourites.  I shall truely and sincercly declare, in my conscience before Chanel and the world, That I am fashion self-sufficient

Henceforth, the clothes I need for the rest of my days**, shall be made by my own fair hands.  No more beautiful purchases will be made in clothes shops, market stalls, or on-line outlets***.  I shall instead take pencil to paper, then needle to thread.

So help me Tim, I mean Vivienne, I mean God…

*Vivienne, not Tim, yo.

**actually just a year, and that is still a long time

*** BUT I am allowed to look, I can’t go complete cold turkey
