The fashion world has proclaimed we must all start dressing like Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw.
To pull off this 90's-esque look we must dash out and purchase a knee length fuzzy coat – or dust off your old one if you were inspired by the cult TV show the first time around – and pair this with bare legs – I'm sure we all have some knocking around somewhere - and finish it off with kitten mules. That's your first look.
Second we have the bustier top, a strapless, fitted number which, to be optimum Carrie Bradshaw, should be in a metallic fabric such as you would upholster a slightly dubious three-piece suite with.
Then of course we have the tulle ballerina skirt. But don't panic, you are allowed to dress this final number down with a vest – but preferably not an old thermal one - and some bog standard four inch skinny strap sandals.
My problem with this – and my only problem naturally – is how this spring/summer 2018 trend is going to fit into MP Chris Grayling's decree that post-Brexit we will all be growing more of our own produce the Good Life way.
I can't quite see Barbara Good, of 1970's sitcom fame, digging up the potatoes in kitten mules. It's more Margot Leadbetter, the next door neighbour, when she volunteered to help out in brand new wellingtons, a paisley headscarf and marigolds.
But this could well be the reality – not the kitten mules or the marigolds, unless you would rather - should the government decide to take us off that 'cliff edge Brexit'. And going on reports about how Theresa May's dinner went with top members of the EU Commission last night, we really had best stock up on tomato seeds.
A think-tank report from the Resolution Foundation and academics at Sussex University has predicted that should we leave the EU without a deal the average household will see costs of food and other goods go up around £260 a year due to higher tariffs.
Chris Grayling has, as a result, said that Britain should become self-sufficient in food after Brexit, much to the horror of farmers and much of the food industry who say this is impossible without any government policy on how they would go about it.
Perhaps the government is anticipating Labour leader and confirmed allotment-lover Jeremy Corbyn will take to YouTube with a series of vlogs on preparing the ground for planting, transferring seedlings and the optimum soil conditions for growing Swiss chard.
Who knows. But the scene which will greet visitors to these shores – should any make it as all the planes will be grounded – will certainly capture that good old British eccentricity. All of us in our tulle ballerina skirts and bustiers tilling the land. “We're living the dream”, we will declare between thrusts of the shovel into the unyielding earth. “Theresa May told us so.”
So I'm off to buy a knee length fuzzy coat. And I'm seriously consider hibernating in it like the brown bear I will no doubt resemble, until all this is over. Failing that I'll be back tomorrow with another scintillating instalment. Until then ciao bella.
On no, sorry, I mean, TTFN.
