Just a quick post-budget post today... whether Gideon, oops sorry, George Osborne admits it or not, things are going to get tougher, but That's Not My Age will avoid getting trapped in the squeezed middle by adopting the Margaret Howell approach to fashion:
'I'm probably a product of growing up in England after the war and holidaying in England because you couldn't afford to go abroad. I was brought up with that austerity attitude - with a love of tradition, to respect things, not to have lots, but one good one.'
And here are some lovely timeless pieces from Howell's spring/summer 2011 collection - not that long to go till the sales!
