My life’s style in stories!
Everybody has their own special and perhaps most treasured items of fashion memorabilia. Whether it be a skirt form your hay days back in the 80s, a designer handbag that you scrimped and saved for months to afford or perhaps it is a piece of jewellery that has been passed down through your family; let’s face it, everybody has their favourites!
For me I believe there are two separate fashion items that tell a story about me; here I will explain ‘my life’s style in stories’ through these items.
Perhaps my most prized possession and my favourite piece of fashion history is my grandmother’s Rotary watch that was passed down to me. It doesn’t have much monetary value, but sentimental value it has lots of.
This stunningly beautiful watch was given to my grandmother as a first year anniversary present by my late grandfather and it is this factor is why I hold such passion for this wrist accessory. You see to me, this watch represents much more than just something that looks beautiful and tells the time; it represents a tale of love. The tale of two people, who met, fell in love and never parted and for this reason I will forever cherish this watch.
Coming in at a close second place is my beloved duffle coat. Again this was passed down to me by my mother. It was her coat back in the uber funky and fashionable 1970s and due to this factor is stylishly vintage. It is a beautiful navy blue ladies duffle coat, with all of its original toggles still intact as well as its hood. It is lined with navy coloured silk and, let’s face it, will never go out of fashion.
So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, ‘my life’s style in stories’!
