I’m not as much of one for starting threads these days, but as I was refreshing my cedar wood balls as one does this time of year on account of the silver dusted winged silk shirt munching hooligans, I reflected upon just how thoroughly generically vulgar and bland is what passes for modern style – all below the knee shorts, tatoos and burglar chic haircuts. No one cuts a dash or a swish anymore. As in the contents of a book case, or record collection, you can deduce quiet a lot about a person’s inner machinations by how they present themselves to the world. So, ‘bunged it on quickly because I didn’t want to freak the postman out’ aside, how about choosing three (3) and only three, favourite articles of clothing. (There will be two subcategories for adornments and footwear to have fun with as you like, a scent of choice category, as well as an article of clothing desired but not yet nesting in one’s possession ).
1. Crushed strawberry mid thigh length over shirt.
2. Pentangle Solomon’s Seal T-Shirt
3. Groovy multicoloured scarf.
Adornments: Om sign necklace, Silver hoop ear ring, Rudraksha beads, Amethyst pendant, Cetlic pewter bangle.
