Mr Fielding has for the second consecutive week worn SIBLING on Nevermind The Buzzcocks. Tonight he donned the Pure Evil Pandas Rock! Crew, a pair of nutcracker jeans (keeping with the Crimbo theme…) and a Stetson: OK so not quite the paper hat out of a cracker but you can’t win ’em all.
Busy DJing at The George & Dragon my phone went ting and it was a text from the Eagle Eyed Dean Mayo Davies followed by a photo. These were closely followed by texts and photos from SIBLING Sid who is now a dab hand at taking pictures of his telly. I spent the next hour DJing and PRing Pandas in a frenzy of excitement, cola and cold-cure. Apparently my set has never been BETTER! I even played Backstreet….
Now the Nightnurse is kicking in I must head to bed but, for information on the Pandas click here.

If you read my post in G Mag….
you’ll know that I was lusting after designer Holly Fulton’s frocks and smashing perspex jewellery. Well, on Monday I treated myself to her ruby-mouth bangle. I love it because the teeth are very English and naturally different sizes. For a girl who possesses wonky teeth this is always seen as a plus. I wore braces for years, attached within my mouth by a lovely hippy-of-a-lady orthodontist on Richmond Green (imagine the cost). After years of staple-mouth I was liberated and… the tooth moved ever so slightly back to its original snaffle (imagine parents horror). Being as stubborn as my tooth, I then refused the offer of a head brace (yes these things existed…) and LA style blinding white and super straight Hollywood teeth from my Father’s Sloane Street dentist and spent quite a few years listening to my Mother’s ‘Isabella Rossellini has a wonky front tooth and she’s beautiful’ reply every time my decision was questioned…
The other bangle I also brought for personal reasons: ‘those rows of pearls look like Cs… you HAVE to get it’ insisted my good friend Rebecca.

It’s lovely to be sent images of our friends wearing their SIBLING sweaters, especially when they are rocking Pandas!

Pretty much fresh-ish off the flight from Bologna…
I ran down to a studio in Shoreditch to have my picture taken for Richard Mortimer’s The Women We Love PONYSTEP editorial. I was showered in Marni polkadots, amazed that I could get into a Chloe skirt, given a bob hairstyle, posed and… everyone decided it wasn’t working:
‘I’m not feeling this are you?’ asked the very lovely photographer Scott Trindle quietly mid-shutter. Minding my manners I answered no but then Richard asked what I really felt ‘OK… I feel like a combination of Who Are You Polly Magoo and Claudia Winkleman. Claudia Winkleman doing ‘hot’…’ at which point Scott laughed and stylist Phoebe took me to one-side, my hair and make-up was readjusted, Hermes located… and… tah dah… the result of which you see below.
I’m soooooo pleased plus this is one editorial where my parents won’t flinch…
‘5 pages in Dazed and I can’t find you? What do you mean I need to look at the person painted black?’ and the classic ‘I rowed with the newsagent in Knightsbridge about that 10 magazine. He tried to sell me bloody Dolce & Gabbanna… I told him NO! I NEED THE PANDA, THE PANDA IS MY DAUGHTER! Felt like a right bloody idiot….’
