Knit Worth

Feb 1, 2009


Mom's old crochet dress, H&M dress, Topshop sandals, vintage Ferragamo bag

While Hanna (LittleMissH) was frolicking around Madrid and feasting on the sales in Edinburgh (you lucky thing!)
I did my own shopping...at the back of my closet, 
where I found this knitted-slash-crochet dress...I'm not that familiar with the terms. 
(But! I did go through a knitting phase a few years ago 
where I was able to finish half a scarf then gave up right after...). 
Anyway,  I think it used to be what my mom used to wear to the beach 
over her bathing suit back in the 90's.
 So I decided to work with it by pairing it over the H&M gingham dress that 
which I wear so often, you guys must be sick of it :)

I like how you paired it. Crochet can be hard. I was thrifting today and I came across this black large-holed crochet mid-rif baring top but I had to leave it behind... kinda sad...just felt like I didn't have the figure to pull it off successfully, which is very important to be able to recognize ;)
