It's getting chilly here in Amsterdam so time to layer up!
I wanted to show you a couple of pieces made by my amazing mother, who's been a major influence on my style and is still fabulous well into her seventies. This oversized sleeveless topper and cropped mohair jumper are both things she made for herself and for some reason decided she didn't want to wear, so she passed them on to me.
Both are favourite items at this time of year and both get lots of compliments. I'm always sure to mention their provenance, at which point people are often somewhat amazed that Grandma has such style.
I really enjoyed Angie's Thanksgiving piece on her parents, because I can't begin to describe what a role model my own mother has been, instilling me with a love of clothes and fashion at an early age.
All that said, I'm not sure she'd wear these with a shiny silver bomber jacket and stripy socks, because I know she thinks I'm far too old to be dressing like Tavi Gevinson. I fear for once that she's probably right.
