Some people take the biscuit

This recent story in the press really irritated me, why do people on the tele think they are so much more special than those who are not? If Ms Williams can claim tax relief on her clothes then surely so can most people? There are very few professions where we can wear exactly what we want, most of us have to either conform or have restrictions placed on the way we dress for work, myself included.
That someone so well paid sees fit to mark herself out as special irritates me, as does her assumption that she can only wear an outfit twice. Is she really so stupid? How hard is it to mix match and rotate clothes? I rarely wear the same combination together twice yet can fit my clothes into one large wardrobe.
What Ms Williams is really saying is that she is too bone idle to put the effort into getting her clothes to work for her, that she would rather spend her way out of thinking up outfits.

I would like to dress like this, but I can't. One session of washing up would have me looking like a walking Jackson Pollock. We all face restrictions on our work wear, only the rest of us have to suck it up and deal with it on a salary one tenth the size of hers.

I have scanned two images from the excellent Sunday Telegraph fashion supplement, this latter outfit is SOOO lovely, I wish I was able to wear it but honestly paint + kids + cooking + dog = no chance.

I have an acquaintance who is bold as brass and she writes off all her clothes and beauty procedures and even her personal trainer. I assure you that her job in no way necessitates these expenses. I sometimes wonder how she sleeps at night. I would be terrified that the taxman would come after me. Her boldness may someday have her end up in jail and wearing stripes.
