Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'I think newspapers do a lot towards it, because one of the first things I do is to look at the women's page in the News Chronicle. I read her - Jill Adams, I think her name is, and sure enough you see something crop up. I may be out, see something on somebody that I like, and try and copy it. I make my own a lot, since I have been married, necessity started it.'
