My Mathilde blouse. Before I tidied it up. It isn’t this shiny in real life, I promise. I should be modelling it, and I promise I will but I have a damned good excuse.

Now they may have been taking the piss but I don’t care, I’ll take compliments where I can get them. And wait until you see the back!
