Pink, grey and lilac

Three vintage items in equally unappealing colours (to me), from the jumble sale in Chiddingly. To be passed to a woman more flamboyant: pink short-sleeve ’60s-style shift dress (Alexon), luridly lilac embroidered sun dress, possibly ’70s and probably someone’s souvenir from a Greek island or something, and fake-silk (polyester, but very convincing: I only sussed when I looked at the washing instructions) ’80s grey shirt with smocked front and slightly puffed sleeves. I quite liked the shirt but it was a smidgeon too tight and gaped across the chest, and it was also a touch too Maggie Thatcher for my liking. There’s retro, and then there’s very bad retro, and one needs to be discriminating. Especially when in a recession and remembering what happened last time around.
