A Guide to What’s Hot and What’s Not by someone who’s not been out since ’11
- The Guilty Feminist podcasts
Download ’em. Hoot and guffaw. Smash the patriarchy
- The Laura Ashley catalogue.
So hot. Esp when you read it in your dressing gown at 7.15pm. Yowch.

JUST REREAD THIS LIST AND REALISED THAT I AM UNBELIEVABLY SHALLOW AND SHOULD BE ASHAMED AND YET AM NOT AND THAT JUST SHAMES ME MORE.
