So I was just yesterday thinking about how I should do a series of posts on what to wear on holidays – for various destinations – and then this email from Harvey Nichols popped into my inbox. Now, not that I’m abandoning my previous pledge, but this is really well done, and will be a taster of what I’ll do, except, obviously, from a variety of stores.

Love that oversized Muse by YSL – but perhaps that’s because yellow is really not my colour. I can only do it if I’m accessorising it, and somewhere quite far away from my yellow-toned face, for shame.

I like the neutrals of this Parisian set-up, they remind me of Alix, my favourite Parisian. Also, why have we all been lusting after Chanel’s nail polishes instead of heading to Nars for that neutral baby?!

A leather jacket – so New York, innit? And I do love me some T by Alexander Wang, but it’s ridiculously overpriced for what is really just, eh, a T-shirt line.

I’ve been to Prague once. I spent three weeks there, in fact, and I didn’t love it. Did you love it? Tell me all. (This is not, then, my favourite city look.)

Now, this, I take issue with. Rome is not the city for oversized Cos-alike clothing – it is the city for shrunken jackets, skinny jeans, Christian Louboutins and gold jewellery. Oh, and big, BIG shades. I still love the Cos-alike clothing, mind you.
