COMPANY OF HEROES

 
Don't you hate it when magazines do price comparison pieces?

Like: here is a stunning dress that costs £100,000. And here is a crap alternative for a tenner. We know it's ugly. We don't actually care. But need to pretend we do to appeal to the masses. And please our advertisers. We don't really pay for anything anyway. We get freebies. Got to go raid the fashion closet now. Our Louboutins have arrived.

Grr...Anyway....here is a potential solution: Company magazine has a High-Street bible. I know what you're thinking, Company is budget. I think it too.

But this is a new (I'm guessing bi-annual) publication seperate to the main magazine, printed on pretty paper, that looks good enough to eat and is totally devoid of calories. Perfect if like me, you're on a sugar-free, pleasure-free, life-free diet.

Oonagh Brennan, Company's fashion director calls it: 'the closest you can get to a bespoke winter wish-list.'

And you know how much I love wish-lists. The mere mention gets me excited.

In fact, it's kind of like a Kinder Surprise. Three things in one: packed with goodies to keep you entertained for hours, looks effing cool and is a comprehensive guide to what's hot on your doorstep.

Unless you live on Sloane Street, in which case, go buy Vogue (and bring me back a present on your way home).

P.S I am not a massive fan of Cheryl Cole for reasons that are too many to list. But here is a still from her new video, Promise This. It's just so pretty. I want to be a ballerina.
