"Get ready to waft." Sorry - my wafting days are long gone. And I'm not sure exactly where my Masai chestplate has gone to (or the shield and spear combo that went with it).

I can do without her gimmicky writing style and her nastiness about women's bodies:

"34. Can I get away with a miniskirt?

If you have to ask, you already know the answer. Trousers can be very nice.

35. Which designers make clothes for the larger figure?

Ooh, there was someone. Hang on, let me think. Erm. What was his name? No, it's gone. Can I get back to you on this one? In the meantime, I suggest you put down that packet of chocolate HobNobs."

Makes one appreciate Linda Grant's prose, and those of other ... thoughtful writers about fashion and style.

Agree with lagatta about the smug snarkiness of the article. I found it to be a bit arch and condescending rather than clever (which is what I believe the author intended).
