Katie Byrne: Worse for wear - Why I'm embracing a 'whole clothes' lifestyle
I spent the best part of last month's wages on silk.
Purchases included a pale pink silk dressing robe that Ava Gardner would have been proud to call her own; a cream embellished silk kaftan and a pair of silk football shorts (because, as we all know, every woman needs a pair of silk football shorts...).
The fact that I now can't afford to go anywhere to wear these pieces isn't the point. The point, rather, is that I have given up buying anything made from polyester - and I'm willing to give up a few fancy meals in order to eliminate it entirely from my wardrobe.
