Vogue Netherlands November 2012 source
In the past few days it has suddenly felt a lot like winter. I wish I could identify with the winter-wonderland images that keep cropping up all over the place in the run-up to Christmas, but, living in the North West, the leaves are not crisp, the trees do not sparkle with frost nor has there been so much as a fleck of snow. Instead, winter brings dark evenings and biting cold, accompanied by an icy Irish Sea wind. And lashings of rain, how could I forget the rain? Vogue Netherlands, however, shows a more realistic depiction of the Great British Weather. It also provides the perfect backdrop for showing the cosiest clothes of the season; I'd like to think that a good cosy road-test is the survival of a Northern winter. Quilting, cable knits and maybe my favourite Celine outfit ever: I wish I could look this good walking my dog up and down Southport beach.
