Unlike the runners and the dancer I do not have long slim legs which come up to my armpits nor a petite and firm derriere. However, I do have a waist and finding trousers that are designed for someone who goes in at the middle and then out a little bit after that has led me to believe I must have a particularly misshapen body.
So hurrah when I discoverd my favourite light wool trousers were not lost at all but had found their way into the boss’s wardrobe. They were returned to their rightful home and today I am wearing them (with a snappy little cashmere top from a charity shop). Clothes might maketh the man, but they also maketh the woman feel a spring in her step when they fit properly.
