When my children were little we would make up stories about the people who lived in the large Victorian & Edwardian houses that overlook our park. The girls' idea of being really posh was to have separate breakfast china, I think June probably has a breakfast set, summer & winter curtains & is very popular with all staff in the local independent shops where she lives.June is a sweetie but living in another era. I imagine she has a subscription to Lady magazine.
Interesting rant and I agree, and it's as though they don't care what you buy, whether it fits or not just buy. They bang on about the mbg knowing that a lot of people won't bother to return stuff anyway. Most of the stuff they sell is totally shapeless and actually "flatters" nobody, and as for "fits" as far as they're concerned as long as you can squeeze yourself into it - it fits! The "twice round the gasworks" stretchy polyester they use for everything from waistbands to sleeves will accommodate anything you put into it - So what they're essentially saying is "It doesn't matter what size you are or what size you buy...you're gonna look sh*t in in anyway..so might as well give yourself a morale boost by buying it in a size small!Rant alert.
They keep doing this and it's silly. They're trying to convince me that I'm not the fat lump the mirror shows, but that this garment (whatever it is) in a smaller size instantly turns me into a person who is actually daintier than I think and the fat lumps are gone. Dream on. Why would anyone want to turn themselves into a sausage skin? Put the models and presenters into the size that fits and flatters and tell us what it is. There's no shame in being a 3xl, an xs or whatever. We are what we are and we should celebrate diversity. Don't try to change me and charge me for the privilege.
I think June worked for FU when it was couture but that sort of style is for red carpet only now. In the 70‘s if you were going to a posh affair (and lots were posh as people treated going to a dinner dance as special) we did wear posh frocks but now if you don’t wear ripped jeans and show your belly you have dressed up posh.I've never worn 'couture', in fact I don't think I know anyone who does.
Sure that she used to be a ModelShe often talks about wearing gloves to the theatre (Probably long satin evening gloves)
Yet I don’t get the impression that she is wealthy rather a woman who has worked and supported herself just in a more gentile way than the rest of us, more independent delis rather than Tesco. I’ll bet she writes beautiful thank you letters after a dinner party.
You're right. I found this from many moons ago -Sure that she used to be a Model
