This Wednesday, I’m hosting a jolly get-together at Grenson’s lovely Soho store in London. It’s all an excuse to step away from the social media screen and meet IRL, just like our old blogger meet-ups back in the day. As much as I love making connections online, it’s good to meet face to face, and I particularly want to get to know some of the people I’ve been talking to on social media for the past couple of years.
That includes readers who have discovered the blog via my book, The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman, so if that’s you, please come down and say hello! And if you don’t have a copy of the book, I’ll also be signing a few on the night (hey, Christmas is coming)…
It should be a fun evening, with drinks and nibbles and a cheeky 20% discount on Grenson’s excellent women’s collection. Don’t forget to RSVP (to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: Disneyrollergirl) and I can’t wait to see you there.

1. GRENSON X NEW BALANCE REINVENT THE 576
The Grenson X New Balance men’s trainers that were unveiled at LCM get my tick of approval. They slightly remind me of when Hermes first did its ‘Quick’ trainer, an understated tan running shoe that was copied far and wide. I love that this is also a classic running shoe style; it’s my favourite 576 model reinvented in a rich Italian grade A calf-skin leather. (more…)
The Natural Shoe Store and I go back a long way. To the eighties to be precise, when its Bass Weejun loafers were the height of cool, albeit far out of reach of my meager pocket money budget. Founded in 1976 by Robert Lusk as a destination for all things earthy and comfort-soled, it was always a bit of a stealth influencer. (more…)
