Automatically assuming the role of a nerd in a classic nerd vs. girl next door relationship, I stole glances at Suki through the mirror reflection for the whole evening. At times I let my hair curtain my eyes which meant I could count her eyelashes without giving off creepy vibes. Creepy vibes: Yes, that should be the title of this post. It was a casual evening out with the Burberry team, who had a couple of tickets to the Temples gig at the Empire and had rounded up a couple gals, myself and Suki Waterhouse included (wat.) Wholesome and unassuming, she turned out to be, and quick to laugh. She drew her eyes dark but kept her lips bare, her nails painted in a sort of black that seemed steely grey at times. Oozing with rockstar confidence yet surprisingly shy at times – a bit like a boy, actually. She smelt of the Burberry Brit Rhythm perfume when she kissed hello (yes I sniffed her), a bit of lavender but weighed down by a woody, musky tang – it suited her so well. The next bit I’m sure you all guessed, I stole a few spritzs on my own wrists before we headed out the door, like a true nerd that I am. So yes, this may or may not be an ode to a new girl crush. My husband approves, as long as he can watch.
