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?
