My sweet heart.

An original Chelsea Girl. Not me - for that read: original Cheshire girl - but this beautifully preserved 37 year old geometric print, cotton skirt. I wear this most precious of preloved finds sparingly (the label reads 'Size 14' but it's super teeeeeeeny around my waist, one sneeze and the button is a gonna) handling it like a priceless museum artefact, for this is my history, where it all began, where fashion took hold, Oh Chelsea Girl, you are a total babe.
