When is the right time to wear a knitted tee? A window that I have yet to catch.

Something about the grain on this photo... And yes, I can put my denim shirt on tomorrow but it won't look this good. Plus. I note that she has the little rucksack that I keep meaning to buy in for the shop. I missed a lovely eggshell one on ebay the other week. Must try harder.
Thanks for the lovely Photo

The one my mum wore in the 70s that I stole to wear in my 20s, until it got lost. I am still looking for it. Navy blue, long and fitted in the arm and the kind of scoop that is only there to give your collarbone a role. And after decades of washing, the only thing that happened was that it just got softer and softer until it was like putting on silk.

Butterick 5145 made up in a yard and a half (no wastage) of slubby 80s raw silk off Etsy that seems to have been tea dyed. In real life, where I and the dress transcend this image, it is classic 80s The Cloth style textile design that has a certain lustre and fall. What you can't see is the beautiful Victorian seal etched into glass set in filigree brass round my neck that my husband bought for my birthday. How constantly surprisingly he knows me well.

Young girls from the Bronx in the early 80s (the early 80s, listen to it again.) making amazing music that was then later sampled and monetized by the boys. I am more than a bit fascinated by their story. I was reminded of them by my friend Clare who saw them live just the other night and said they were amazing.
