I was going to go for a Clare V leopard print clutch but it had real calf hair-on which didn’t feel right so I opted for a real-leather faux-hair-on pouchette instead, hypercritical? Maybe a little, I need to sort out emotions on hair-on and leather products! Are you yay or nay for leopard?

In total, this outfit would have cost me £5,284! Let’s just say I’m glad I don’t make this kind of money, I would very much prefer spending this £5,284 at a world tour with a best friend armed with nothing but a rusty, dirty backpack and a road map! I guess I’m not made for ‘finer’ things, but this won’t stop me from saying ‘If I could, I would…’
