Grandma knits and bag…

Taking outfit photos lately has been a bit of a nightmare. The weather has been awful and since I no longer have uni (sob) I am indoors searching for jobs on the computer which means lots of lazy day outfits!

Anyway, I love the fact that cable knit cardigans and sweaters are all over the shops at the moment. This means I have even more reason to wear my grandma’s lovely knits. Who knew that I would be wearing cardigans and jumpers that she knitted for my dad and aunts all those years ago? Money certainly couldn’t buy these! She’s the same grandma in these Vintage photos I posted not too long ago.

Both the cardi and bag are not strangers to this blog but I do wear this Vivienne Westwood bag a lot when I go out with friends. I’ve had it since I was 18 and it’s definitely starting to look a little frayed around the edges. I should probably take more care when using it now.

I remember when I went into a Vivienne Westwood store in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong all those years ago. There, my aunts persuaded me not to buy a little black bowling bag with the infamous slogan, “Too fast to live, too young to die” emblazoned on the side. I’m so glad I listened, this one is definitely more classic and chic! It was also bought with the help of my grandma…so a lotta grandma love in this post!

Hopefully, I’ll get to catch up with my grandma and HK relatives next Summer. It sucks that they live on the other side of the world.
