A miserable and dreary wet day here. I foolishly on Thursday said to a friend that my many years of clothes angst had been vanquished. I had now been able to go out and find nice, flattering clothes in my size after a change in attitude (the attitude before being that I wouldn't find anything and it therefore becoming a self fulfilling prophecy.
HA ! said the Universe and I've spent a fruitless day trailing about trying to find a jacket for an interview - A Very Important Interview. It monsooned down as I trailed wearily between shops. I did manage to get a bag, shoes and an umbrella but no jacket.

It's kind of reassuring to hear someone else talk about clothes angst. I've almost given up hunting for clothes on the high street after too many traumatic changing room moments and the impossibility of finding something that's "just right". I'm considering finally learning how to use my sewing machine in desperation!

No it wasn't the universe saying HA! to you - the sort of jacket you were hunting for - a smart jacket that isn't designed as part of a suit - is impossible to find at the best of times and almost impossible to source in July!. Best bet in these circumstances is to go with a very plain cardigan/twinset in a neutral colour.
