Horrified: In the fashion spotlight: all the clothing we’re not wearing. Ecouterre “U.K. Consumers Own Â£30 Billion Worth of Clothing They Never Wear” article here, and Vixen Vintage on the new bookÂ Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.

Loving: Thanks to my friend Phoenix Flame I have joined the legions of fans of Caitlin Moran. Phoenix thrust her book, How To Be A Woman, into my hands. She’s a feminist voice for the Twitter age. A romp of an interview with her is here.
