Farbeit for me to claim to be Freakytrigger’s fashion correspondent but society has yet to accept my naked form as something appropriate to see on the street and so inevitably, I am driven unto clothing retail outlets all too often. On Saturday I found myself on Oxford Street mopily looking at the extortionate price Office seem to think it’s acceptable to charge for ballet pumps; I know short people have to pay a lot for heels but paying the same amount for what is essentially a slipper seems like an unfair tax on the vertiginous.

Gloomy, I shuffled out of the shop and into one almost directly opposite. “Funny,” I thought, “I don’t remember New Look being here before”
