My mum used to tell me that if you hang onto something long enough the fashion will come around again.  That was back when a whole era, like the 70’s, would come back in fashion.  I used to cringe a little bit when she hauled her original (handmade) 70’s maxi skirts out the closet exclaiming proudly, ‘These are right back in fashion!’.  Yes, they fit me but no, there was no way I was wearing them out in public.  Then.  Still got them mum?

Fashions come and go so quickly now that you don’t even need to wait that long!  I remember wearing this skirt for my degree show, nine, cough, years ago.  Geez.  Floaty fabric, side splits, asymmetric hem, painterly print.  Bang on.  Truth be told, I can’t wait for summer so I can restyle it with pastels and sandals.


P.S.  I must really apologise but I have quite a serious allergy.  Ironing.  Anyone else?

    LOL I don’t even buy anything that will need to be ironed… or, if it does, then too bad!

    I remember your degree show opening well – it was toasty! Remember when it was actually warm in the summer?! Looking great Mrs G! x

    My mom showed me how to iron a shirt one day … it was my dad’s … she told me if I could learn to iron a man’s shirt then I could iron anything … she showed me … it was perfect and then handed one to me … I was determined to do it right … and after much ironing back and forth with no decent result in sight and with little patience left, she took the shirt from me and said .. “oh hon, you will never learn how to iron!” … I took her phrase literally … I was obedient like that … and so I do not iron! 🙂

    Oh!! I like your style… I am following you in bloglovin…
    Yes I am allergic to ironing too :)) I love wearing vintage clothes mixed with contemporary basics … I believe the result is more original than wearing everything current season!

      I completely agree – some things I am so glad I kept and probably others I will still be wondering why I kept in ten years time!x
