Well hi there! We have had a busy summer with lots of boating to beautiful places, school holiday activities, a wedding in Queensland but most importantly – time with family and friends. However, I have been very quiet on the blogging front, but I have missed writing and I look forward to firing up The Poppy Files for yet another year.
Today, I am loving my new Bella Freud 1970 jumper that I have finally sourced online from Grace Boutique in Melbourne. I first laid eyes on this beauty worn by a very stylish make-up artist on a shoot I was working on last year. Thank you, Blanka Dudas, for the inspiration.
Bella Freud, the great-granddaughter of Sigmund Freud is an iconic designer whose quirky knits have an almost cult-like following:
While messing around on my photocopier I spied the date 1970 printed in the corner of a page of the book I was leafing through. Inspirited, I kept blowing it up, then cut it out and pinned it onto my black jumper. It had a rough charm that made me think of the early New York punk scene in the 70’s, and Patti Smith. A favourite with Kate Moss and Alexa Chung.
A perfect example is Laura Fantacci from Wearing it Today styling it to absolute perfection in the Alps:
I may not rock this jumper like Blanka, Kate, Alexa or Laura, but oh my gosh, I love it … and it is my birth year after all! Xx
