Later today I am doing a guest slot as a publisher for my good friend Andrew Webb’s Guardian Masterclass on ‘How to write and publish a book about food‘. I am wearing mainly black and thought I needed to make a sartorial nod to my creative side, so I will be wearing these fabulous stripy boots by United Nude. I saw them in Westfield Stratford City just after it opened, when I went along with my sister and her family to check out this new shopping centre just a few miles from home. Initially I wasn’t sure – seems to be a theme emerging here! – but then I couldn’t get them off my mind so I went back a few days later and grabbed them!
