We love... Style Notes by Maggie Alderson

Let's declare an interest here.  Novelist Maggie Alderson is Jo's best friend.  But cross-your-heart-and-hope-to-die, we'd follow her new Style Notes blog even if we didn't know her from a bar of Floris Rose Geranium Soap.  Style Notes is a column that's appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald for years, and is now exclusively available to on-line readers.  (She has some following, and Herald readers are deserting in their droves now they can no longer find her in the Good Weekend mag.  Fact.)  It's about real clothes for real people, mostly - but with the cred of someone who used to edit Elle and The Evening Standard's ES and who for years trailed between Paris, Milan, London and New York for the seasonal collections.  Always witty, sometimes poignant, and eternally readable.  What's not to love?  (Even if she's not your best friend.)
