I wasn't sure I was going to post again - I seem to have been struck by a temporary blogging boredom - I think the problem is that I now tend to read blogs on my ipad, and I haven't figured out how to post from it yet. I'm sure it's possible but maybe it's just a bit beyond my technical abilities, and I don't seem to get around to logging on to the computer and posting.
This morning though, I happened to be on the computer for something else and read Gina's post about our trip to the Fashion and Textile Museum yesterday for the "Knitwear - Chanel to Westwood" Exhibition.
Anyway, back to Gina's post - I feel that as she was brave enough to post a picture of her 24 year old self, wearing a knitted suit, the least I could do was show a bit of sisterly solidarity and post a picture of me in a knitted suit that I made (and wore!) many years ago.
I had a knitted machine and as a result two coloured patterning was a breeze - so, hey, why not knit a leopardskin sweater?
Obviously, a matching leopardskin skirt would be overkill, so you see me wearing a co-ordinating black knitted skirt with allover pleats. Oh my! What a flattering two piece, complete with massive shoulder pads - and with the added benefit of being very warm and itchy too.
I'm not sure exactly how old I was - late 20's or early thirties. Believe it or not, I was quite slim then - but thanks to the big boxy top no-one would ever know. And all topped off by an exceptionally hideous curly perm. I'm off to see my hairdresser this afternoon - do you think I should go for it?
PS - I've just had another look at this - why am I standing there with my arms just ... dangling?
I can understand the facial expression - if you looked like this you wouldn't have much to smile about either.
