Happy 4th to all my super American readers.
Have an amazing day!
Ladies, there us no calm way to say this ...
I am wearing T A L B O T S !!!
Ever since I began blogging I have been reading of my American friends popping into Talbots and coming out with lovely pieces of clothing. So when recently I was a-rummaging in my fave charity shop I got incredibly excited when I spotted a top with a Talbots label. Well, I grabbed it. I didn't care what its US size was IRL, whether it suited me, whether it was fashionable (and it probably isn't). I just didn't care. I wanted that label and I was ready to blow my £3 pocket money on a Talbots top and that was that. End of. Fin de.
Well, luck was on my side. It fitted!
And it's pretty perfect for a hot summer's day (of which we have had so many - insert big beaming smile of contentment).
It's gently loose (read baggy!) and has a cascade of frills down the front and the fabric is a pale green/pink paisley. I like paisley. And I have been a fan of green and pink together after a love at first sight moment.
I can remember when and where my heart fluttered. 1968. An office toilet. Pink loo paper alongside green curtain. Those colours look so nice together, thought the younger version of The Pout. I'll store that image for future use.
Future use, as nicking the office curtain and strutting along the high street wearing it draped over one shoulder and accessorised with pink toilet roll was not an option, even in the wild and crazy 60s.
So a pretty long story to explain why I was drawn to the top in the first place. But it is what it is and I am what I am, eh peeps.
And I can now sleep at night, knowing that something from the US brand Talbots is hanging in my wardrobe, and on summer's days, hanging on me.
And here is said tag, as if there were any doubt whatsoever that I would be fibbing about such an important thing.
A la perchoine.
