    Thank you for sharing this. This is the best interview I've read in a while.
    I want to sit down and have tea with her and just listen.

    Yes, thanks for sharing this, it's just excellent.

    I especially love the section about making clothes last and caring for them.

    She is so witty and caustic, my god. WHAT A QUEEN.
    I got her books instantly after reading this interview. Can't wait to read them!

    This is a sharp contrast from the "Wear whatever you want, you look beautiful in everything no matter your size" nonsense that you hear today. It's refreshing.

    :bow:Thanks for sharing!!

    My husband and I were just in Paris last week and he is seriously the most unobservant person I've ever met but even he kept pointing out the American tourists and laughing about just how sloppy they look.

    I also really agree with what she said about taking care of clothing--I used to be someone who would buy something if it was super cheap and I thought I might wear it once or twice. Now I try to save up and just buy really quality pieces and then take care of them.
