A celebration was in order as today’s post marks the fourth anniversary of Grownup Glamour.
What better way to celebrate than donning a rather special find , a Vivienne Westwood cardigan
that found its way home after I discovered it at a Vintage Red Fox last week.
It seems hard to believe that four years have passed since I hit publish for the first time.Long time readers of the blog know that this started as a challenge to myself as I was turning 60. I had no idea of the connections I would make with like minded souls around the world. I have gleaned so much on a vast variety of interests from fellow bloggers.
The world of blogging has changed , with many bloggers opting for the relative ease of Instagram, that said I hope to continue along my own way. On my recent trip to Melbourne I was approached by a lady who read the blog and enjoyed my style – I must admit this made my day.
Now to my special find – the Vivienne Westwood cardigan , not something you usually would find in my small town but there it was in black and white and in my size – some things are just meant to be.
Today the cardigan was paired with my faithful Moyuru skirt , a white cami, my Trippen sandals and a straw boater.
The buttons on the cardigan display one of the symbols that feature in Vivienne Westwood’s garments-this one is the Orb.It resembles the Sovereign Orb,which is one of the British Crown Jewels,that was created for the coronation of King Charles11. I have read conflicting ideas on why this is used as a symbol, one is that Vivienne is the Queen of British fashion , another a more rebellious notion. Either way, I just love the buttons.
Trippen Happy sandals , that I purchased last Summer were just perfect for today and no doubt will make many blog appearances over Summer.
Thank you to everyone who takes time to read my blog and leave a comment, you make my day.
