I just got my daily THE OUTNET update, and I was totally intrigued by the Ossie Clark stuff! That just got me thinking about my childhood, and I had a nice little trip down memory lane! My mother wasn't really into fashion, but I can remember a stage where I was about 6 or 7 years old and I guess my parents went through a phase where they went out a bit more than usual. I think any girl likes seeing her mother dressed up. There is one dress in particular that I can remember so well...it was definitely no Ossie Clark (we didn't have money for designer stuff!!), but was obviously based on his designs. It was black with colorful flowers and looked a lot like the black dress above. I thought my mother looked exotic and together with the high heels she looked like a movie star to me.
I'm not the biggest vintage lover, but this I would love to wear! The new stuff is also totally great - as soon as I saw the orange pants with navy chiffon blouse, I knew I would have to get my hands on something similar! Or start looking for the real thing on eBay!
