Posh Bird Style Spotter
So this morning I decided that from now on I'd hit the streets armed with my camera. Or, at least, I'd have a camera in my bag when I happened to have to go out for a meeting anyway. Because I thought I could really prove that posh is back by spotting posh-looking trends on, y'know, people on the street. Within seconds of looking – I had someone. Standing right next to me on the Piccadilly platform of King's Cross (not the world's poshest or trendiest place, you'll agree) was this vision. I knew he was trendy – even Posh Bird is up on these things – he was wearing jazz shoes, skinny-skinny jeans, 80s-style faded denim shirt, a gold watch and an Adidas bag slung on his shoulder. All topped off by a genuine quilted Barbour jacket. What could be posher than that? It's back! It's BACK!
A journalist of ten years, I am now a freelance writer, mainly for the Daily Telegraph. My book, 'Mud & The City: Dos and Don'ts for Townies in the Country' is out now and has sold at least three copies in Hatchard's, Piccadilly. I live in a tiny flat in Notting Hill and occasionally venture out beyond the M25 but never without my red wellies. I like champagne, spare batteries, that smug feeling you get after going for a run (I only feel this about once a year) and the odd square of dark chocolate. I don't like non-nice things.
