Have you ever discovered sunglasses so perfect you buy them in the darkest months of the year? This lady has.
Say hello to my brand new Tom Ford Lana superspy shades (from the sunglass superstore that is SmartBuyGlasses).
To keep my eyes feeling happy after multiple laser surgeries, I have been wearing a selection of old school sunglasses, then throwing them in my handbag in the evening. Naturally, this has resulted in some wear and tear. To combat the issue, I have been wearing my Tom Fords from sunrise to sundown, then tucking them into their uber luxe suede case like a responsible adult.
It must be love.

As I mentioned on Twitter, today was the kind of day that called for a blog. Why? I spent my afternoon with Tom Ford.
Well, Tom Ford and 100-something other fashionistos and istas. The occassion? The Apple Store on Regent Street held “Tom Ford In Conversation With Paula Reed” (Grazia’s Style Director) today.
Unsurprisingly, Tom sent everyone’s hearts a-flutter. As well as being the legendary designer who made Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent into what they are today, he is incredibly charming, witty, and well-spoken. Though the full interview will soon be up on iTunes for your enjoyment, I thought I would share a few of my interview highlights below.
The shoe is a piece of architecture. It stands on its own. There’s a vocabulary that has to relate.
Of course I doubt myself. In fashion, you have to doubt yourself until the very last minute.
On having fashion in the blood:
I have a niece and her first word was shoe.
On moving from Santa Fe to New York at the start of his career:
I knew I had to get out. I knew it was the place for me and I knew that I had to go.
