Those who have met me might know that I am relatively clueless about fashion trends. I have my old wardrobe staples and rarely budge. I am a virtual stranger to the fashion "knock-off".
That was, until yesterday. That's when I saw the beautiful Cate Blanchett on the red carpet, at the launch of the Screen Worlds exhibition in Melbourne. She was wearing a statement piece. A garment that said crochet; with a nod to the the iconic granny square, that we novice crocheters so love.
I thought it was fun. And just had to get my hands on one.
But as is so often the case, the rushed copy is never quite the same. The fit seems a little odd. What do you think?
(What do you mean she wasn't holding hers closed at the back with one hand? And can anyone tell me why mine was displayed on a bed?)
