Back to School

They say the wanderer returns.   And they’d be right.

Unlike the many millions of children returned to school last month – with leaden feet and poet sighs – I make my homecoming altogether more gladly.*

What of my travels? 

For those fortunate to call San Francisco home – or simply those who have clung onto the side of a cable car the morning after cocktails at Rye and Bourbon & Branch – it will be little wonder that I have fallen quite hopelessly in love with your eccentric, hipster city.  Let’s whisper this, but it may even have replaced New York in my affections.

More, Napoleon suggested – in a moment of uncharacteristic spontaneity – that we take a week in Paris.  This explains my somewhat later-than-promised return to blogging, but – after dating the same man for longer than even she believes – a girl has to seize every opportunity for romance and shopping on Avenue Montaigne.

Especially when it means giving a two-finger salute to the nine-to-five for another week.

The normal service of life will always recommence, however, and this first post finds dedication to my favourite class of wanderer. 

The Fashion Editor. 

Traversing the four capitals of the fashion globe, the nomadic and heavily caffeinated editrix provides a sartorial masterclass better than any of those evidenced on the catwalk. Without tire. Without faux pas. And she does it all in knife-edge heels.

Truly the kind of wanderer, then, that mere amateurs like me aspire to be.

  2. Welcome back!! I would love to go to San Francisco, and it may have a little to do with loving Charmed! Ha x

  3. We missed you! Great post as always. Next time you’re in Paris, let me know.


  4. So happy you’re back – I was actually starting to worry that something bad had happened! Hope you’ve had an amazing time, and love that you took an impromptu, romantic trip to Paris as well!

  5. Yay… you’re back!! So glad you had a wonderful time… and Paris too… how lovely! I was fascinated by the editors on my one day excursion to LFW – it was all I could do not gawp. The highlight was standing 6ft away from Chief Editrix, La Wintour. I nearly hyper-ventilated with excitement! So good to have you back and look forward to lots more posts! xx
