I've been reading the research and as we are all swimming about in the same pond of factoids, no doubt so have you - that women with designer handbags flaunt them to warn off harlots from thrusting their cleavage at their men. Now, this is an interesting one, I can understand filling a Chanel handbag with lead weights and beating the living daylights out of any hussy who might approach a partner but I'm not really convinced on designer goods being the ersatz thumb of the little dutch boy vis-a vie infidelity - for the love of God do not over analyse that metaphor it will fall apart like a Cadbury's cream egg on a hot stove.
I had thought that the LVMH group must have funded these social scientists but apparently not.
Who knew that a Chanel or Hermes portmanau actually said: "bag off, bitch. He's mine."
The Pink Coat.
Don't Think Pink; I counted 20 in town yesterday.
It's the biggest conspiracy since the moon landings.*
My new cushions ( O & L, Persian garden Shiraz) mmm, love crewelwork and they are so matchy matchy with my collection of sketches which sooth my rabid mind.
Have been trailing around on the replacement jewel hunt, I haven't found anything, I'll wait till I'm in London but I have discovered two dazzling emporiums.
The first is Rox. Any shop that serves up a menu of complimentary cocktails with diamonds ranks among B&P's finest. Breakfast at Tiffanys has just been usurped.
If the Rat Pack were still around, this is where they would be taking their dames for hot rocks.
The atmosphere was too rarified, I didn't dare whip out the old iphone for snaps.
Ah, but now, we are really talking. Joseph Bonnar is an Edinburgh institution, he is to diamonds and pearls what Nicholas Haslam is to interior design. Do not expect a champagne filled coupe here but rapier wit, insightful wisdom and a scintilating stock that is peerlessly vintage.
Betty Davis, Lauren Bacall, Tilda Swinton, Princess Margaret and Colin Tennant have all failed to resist temptation.
Oh and talking of the old devil, I cannot wait.
*Don't tell me you think they actually got there?
Just in case you haven't had your morning coffee, insert big giant wink here.
