It has come to my attention that the people who should be posting my blogs have been remiss of late.

Shame on them. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize on my, sorry, their behalf. Perhaps they have temporarily run out of witty/wise/timely things to say.

I suggest you go about your business and check back later in the year when the blog muse has returned.

In the meantime, I would like to share two of the “Best of The Season’s Catwalk Fashions For Men” posted in today’s Guardian. It’s almost enough to make me start blogging again.

But I’d have to stop guffawing first.

    Looked at those this evening with Rosie perched on my knee and we were both in fits. The irony is that I actually supplied the ‘script’ for one of the fashion week shows, although not sure if it was any of these.

      I’m sure you’d look very fetching in that dress Tony.

    And did you see the bloke with half of a wooden fence nailed across his face? Oh dear…

  3. Nicola morgan 6 years ago

    Yes, Adele, and I even smiled slightly at the caption about thinking out of the box…

    I want those orange-check pants. (No issue about body shape with him, is there?
    But how to describe what that gent in the second pic is wearing. Does the fashion business have a word for it?

      It’s a Little Black Dress, obviously, and I would look AMAZING in it. ‘Scuse me while I rob this guy.

    Meg, Barney saw this over my shoulder and said ‘err….is that a man? errr…what the f***

    Thanks, Meg. You just can’t get the staff these days.

    Interesting to see how those department-store Santas earn a living the rest of the year.

    I know models are paid a lot of money, but seriously, how much did they have to pay the guy (?) to wear the little black dress? Or did he do it for a bet?

      His face says ‘On Monday I’m looking for a new job.’

    2. Meg 6 years ago

      It does say that.

    How dare you laugh at my mum and dad?! They’re just trying to earn a crust.

  9. Mik 6 years ago

    I think the ‘hairy old buffer’ look is one I could adopt as my own

    1. Meg 6 years ago

      Mik, actually I saw you in the dress.

    2. Mik 6 years ago

      Mmm.. I see what you mean but I’m not sure I carry off black and grey.

    I like the old man, he looks straight out of a children’s book 🙂 The less said about the second one the better, though…

    Top one reminds me of a Dwarf-Dumbledore hybrid!

    Are we sure this isn’t a “Before and After” of the same man: how embracing fashion can change your life, affect your self-esteem and make you a better person!

    1. Mik Bedson 6 years ago

      Tamzin. Are you saying I would be a better person if I wore a frock? Is this done neo-feminist thing ?

  13. Barbaroos 6 years ago

    Halleluja, there you are again Meg. Great pics.
    BTW, how is your new book going? Could you share something about how you manage to ‘fabricate’/’invent’ the plot/structure of a story? I try to write too and most of the time I end up with a main character experiencing some great adventures, but not going anywhere. Can’t get grip of the conflict, of the need, of the drive. Could you share a tiny litte bit of how you proceed? (please excuse my English, I am Dutch).

  14. Barbaroos 6 years ago

    Not litte, but little.

    1. Meg Rosoff 6 years ago

      OK, Barbaroos, I’ll come back from retirement this once and write a blog about writing — because I’m doing it now and boy is it tricky….stay tuned….

    2. Barbaroos 6 years ago

      Yeay! Thanks in advance!

  15. Amber 6 years ago

    Not fashion… but are you planning on teaching any courses this year? Your diary is so 2011, darling.

    1. Meg Rosoff 6 years ago

      Oh god, don’t even look at my diary. It’s so out of date it’s a joke. I’m not teaching a lot this year, but I am doing a weekend course on Voice through the Mumsnet academy — you can sign up here.

    2. Amber 6 years ago

      Thanks Meg, I’ll check it out!

    Hey Meg, Yesterday, someone I don’t know made my day by giving my blog a Sunshine Award for…well…bringing some sunshine to her life every day. That’s what your blog does/did for me – so I’m nominating you – because I miss your blogs. No pressure!

    I hope everything’s going swimmingly. Frantically exciting about the film. Writing screenplays? Riding horses?

    Love from Caroline
