We’re not bitter or anything, but one time our journalism professor gave us a B- on a live-tweeting assignment for quoting the speaker too much. Too much! Well, take that [name redacted], because Sasha Wilkins and someone at Vogue UK are diligently taking down every word Phoebe Philo’s saying right this minute, and it’s pretty freaking great.
The thinking woman’s designer took to the Vogue Festival stage Saturday and unleashed a flurry of potent quotables covering everything from why we can’t shop those painterly Céline tops online to the reasoning behind her departure from Chloé. And thanks to our nimble-fingered friends across the pond, we didn’t have to pay airfare or deal with any conversion rates! #blessed (But we also missed out on their version of E!’s mani-cam, so there’s that.)
Below, we’ve compiled 10 of the shiniest pearls of wisdom — or soundbites, if you prefer — PP dropped at the Harrods-sponsored “two-day extravaganza.” All tweets come courtesy of @BritishVogue and @LibertyLndnGirl, so why not give them a follow?

10. You’ll make an exception for us, won’t you?
