>> I'm still a little bit occupied by girly paraphernalia that bring out my worse hoarding tendancies but this time I have something to put on my back.  Romance was Born's embroidered denim jacket (also on sale on The Grand Social) from their A/W 12 Happy Campers collection arrived in belated fashion (given that down under, they're making way for all things summer) but closely packed stem stitches of sunrays, stars, clouds and what appears to be a UFO is appropriate any time of the year.  At the very least, it's one surefire way of coaxing me into wearing denim, a nemesis fabric of sorts.  I keep expecting the jacket to suddenly burst into a trippy happy-go-lucky animation befitting of its seventies Girl Guides/Scouts roots, one of the influences of this collection.  I never had the fortune of learning how to recognise knots or do flower pressing sessions but I'm trying my best to get my "Embroidery Appreciation" badge pinned on to this jacket.
