Some days it seems there are more press appointments to get to than any reasonable person could expect; on Wednesday I found myself running from Karen Millen to Kilkenny to Tommy Hilfiger and then getting caught in the almightiest of rain showers on my way home, all before I got down to the business of writing my column, setting up an Xposé shoot and feeling sure that I was contracting yet another cold. (I do worry about myself, sometimes.)

Luckily for you, I also found time to pose for Róisín Moloney of Rockin Fashion – wearing my 3.1 Philip Lim bag, Topshop jacket, Isabel Marant trainers, Whistles shorts, grey Marks & Spencer tights, new mulberry shirt by Equipment at My-Wardrobe and grey sweater from H&M. Glasses by Gok Wan @ Specsavers, watch by Michael Kors!

Jeez, writing that down has made me feel like a serious label whore. And, well, a bit of a spendthrift. I generally dislike “showy” labels – so, for example, I don’t like anything monogrammed, branded hardware on bags (River Island’s a terrible one for that!) or any kind of obvious branding, although I feel as if that’s a bit disingenuous of me because it’s not like nobody recognises these shoes (for example).

On the Equipment front, I will say this: I have never before found shirts that fit me properly, closed over my boobs and didn’t make me look like a Michelin man. So I will continue buying Equipment shirts until I am a twiglet and can fit into size 10 shirts in Penneys.
