TIMES MONEY FEATURE

So I did a little dance and air punch when the gorgeous Laura from The Times (who used to be my editor at the Warwick boar - ahh, those were the days) asked me if I wanted to share my tips for discount shopping for a feature she was writing on creating an enviable wardrobe on the cheap. You may, like my friend T did, chortle at my giving money advice but in my defence... OK FINE, I have no defence. Whatever. Do as I SAY and not as I DO. Ummm...

Anyway, here are the pictures from the shoot, shot by the seriously lovely and uber talented Jas Lehal (it takes a special person to get me to look vaguely relaxed and stop doing the 'Chandler smile' in photos). You can see the feature in full here (it was published in Saturday's paper, but you mightn't have been able to get hold of a copy as I think collectively my mother and great aunt stockpiled most of them).
