TO IRON OR NOT TO IRON? That is the question...

Do you fancy a little crinkle, a wonky wrinkle - or two? And no I'm not talking epidermis - I'm talking linen. 

Do you believe that ironing shows a certain dignity, a sort of  strength of character that is missing in the rough and tumble of the unironed world?

Seniors Newspaper Editor, Gail Forrer, doesn't mind the unironed look and indeed considers it a little edgy, creative, a tad boho.

Linen is not her favoured fabric, though she recalls it as preferred fashion item in the 80s when as a young and vibrant woman, she didn't have the front to front up crumpled.

But now, with age comes a certain amount of confidence and she gives it a nod (or pays homage - as the fashion pundits write) to its re-emergence on the contemporary fashion scene.

Still, that aging confidence was given a nudge, when her colleague and seniors newspaper exec Vicky Sheridan noted the Editor's crushed look and well, she was crushed.

Mentally, that is, because Vicky is a fit, strong and healthy believer-in-ironing.

There is nothing crushed about Vic's style - smooth, flattened and sharply ironed creases are the foundation holding up this lady's wardrobe.

"Never," our Vicky says, would she don an unironed robe.

So there we have it the brunette, (with Taurus star sign), favouring a slightly lumpy, bumpy style and the blonde (with a Taurus star sign) defined with a love of levelled lines.

Is ironing old fashioned? Or it the keeper of style and good manners?
