"This Old Thing is here to show you that vintage shopping doesn't have to mean rummaging through old cardigans at a car boot sale - instead, let Dawn introduce you to a world of beautiful and unique fashion treasures, and show you how to create a glamorous personal style that is all your own."
THIS OLD THING - DAWN O'PORTER
Hello!

Right then, my website...almost everything I have ever done is here somewhere. Articles, Books, Tv Shows, Blog, Tweets, Radio, etc etc – you get the idea. Thank you to my dear friend, Pollyanna Rose, for all the funky photography. I always wanted a picture of myself eating a burger in a shower and now I have it, so I couldn’t be more thrilled.

My first novel Paper Aeroplanes came out last year in the UK, and the sequel, GOOSE is also ready for your consumption. You can read some reviews for them on my Press page. They follow the story of two teenage girls who, against the odds, become friends. It’s about loneliness, frustration, heartache, betrayal and tampons. There are two more in the series to come. All I have to do is write them.

Paper Aeroplanes, the US edition, comes out in American on September 9th, 2014. There are some minor changes so that y'all know what I'm talking about. But look out for that.

Also, you can find details of The Booby Trap And Other Bits And Boobs on the BOOKS page. It’s a compilation of stories by well known people that I edited for breast cancer charities. It’s funny and heart warming, and you must all support the cause. I recently received an email from a lady who read the book, checked her boobs, found a lump and got diagnosed. A life has been saved, let’s save some more.

BUT FOR NOW get excited as my new show, This Old Thing - The Vintage Clothes Show, starts on C4 at 8pm, June 25th. See me trying to convert high-streetoholics to the joys of vintage clothes. I loved making it, and hopefully you will love watching it. There is also a book to tell you everything you need to know about how to get vintage right. Grab it on Amazon here.

And as always, be sure to subscribe to Glamour Magazine as I am their columnist. And do say hi on Twitter (@hotpatooties). Because most of the time when I say I am working, I am actually just looking at pictures of people’s lunch.
