If you're a long-time reader of this blog, you already know how I admire Lisa of A Bloomsbury Life. Her writing skills, outlook on life, beautiful home (which has oodles of personality to it) and of course her iconic embroidery art- I find it all so inspiring, and this outfit with a past post is no different. Enjoy! -Chedva
Case in point: This black crocheted shirt was my favorite go-to piece of clothing for the summer of 1995 (and maybe a little beyond). I found it on a trip to London and it immediately became a staple of my wardrobe. At the time, I was living in a loft on 17th Street in Manhattan, filling my days as an advertising writer at Saatchi and Saatchi and my nights as a denizen of the downtown New York nightlife scene. As for the glasses, I was as blind as a bat and their dork-chic vibe formed a crucial part of my style armor. Growing up, my mother had always told me "Boys never make passes at girls who wear glasses" and I had rebelliously chosen the most statement-making pair I could find to prove her wrong.
