Having a genuine fashion need is my only purpose for a shopping fix these days. As you may know I was horrified recently by all the cheap disposable clothing, slashed in price if you can be bothered to search through piled high, end of season garments, you would not be seen dead in.
I am off to LA on Thursday where the sun shines, so waxing is essential, a pedicure a must and a well-fitting designer bikini that fits me like a glove, to be sourced in 48 hours before my flight leaves. Having lived there I know all about the preparation for major restoration needed in the land of the perfect.
Yesterday I headed straight for a huge department store in search of the perfect bikini, before a trip to a salon for a Brazilian wax and an embarrassing visit to the nail shop to get my tired, neglected feet some much needed attention, poor person landed with that job!
The bikini bit was quite smooth finding a Jasper Conran emerald green two piece in the sale, 70% off, perfect in size and shape to pull off some budget style confidently with a smile.
The waxing as always leaves me feeling smooth and fresh, my top tip for instantly looking younger and more LA, body hair and unwanted whiskers don't go down very well in LA LA Land. The pedicure was cheap and my poor feet are now paying the price after having my dead dry skin sliced off by a junior with a sharp blade, ouch!
So all in all the personal grooming and need for a new bikini had its highs and lows resulting in me being almost ready to breeze through West Hollywood, promoting and introducing the Venus Cow PBL perfect black leggings. California here I come.
