Mela Loves London is a sneaky little brand. I'm saying this because I want you to be prepared. Oh sure, you'll stumble across a couple of discounted dresses in a hidden corner of Debenhams and think, 'Hey. There's no harm in it.'
That's how they get you. In fact, they've already got you. Before you know it, dresses from Mela Loves London will be chosen for you by friends and family, because they seem 'very you'. The concession starts to follow you everywhere. You comment on a friend's dress - oh! Guess where it's from. You find yourself drawn to the MLL rail in New Look. And gradually, ever so gradually, all those other high street brands in your wardrobe get shunted out in favour of Mela.
If brands were bodysnatchers... WELL. I don't think I need to say any more.
The HatIn truth, what I REALLY want is a top hat. I sort of feel like I'd wear it all the time. Possibly. Maybe not at all. BUT MAYBE. Unfortunately, I haven't found one yet, but I'm quite cheerfully settling for this bowler hat. It's hipster and trendy, and if I wore it in most corners of Hertfordshire, I suspect I'd feel like a total douche, BUT I LIKE IT.
Here is a fact: if I go to a party and there is a hat, it is a 97% certainty that I will end up wearing that hat.
The Boots...are some of the most uncomfortable I own. Keep an eye out for them on eBay.
