I'm glad you all liked my Lady K Jeans as much as I did. Y'all should all go out and grab a pair, kissing goodbye to your ill fitting trouser blues!!
Lady K is fast becoming my highest rated rockabilly on-line shops - many of their dresses feature on my Christmas wish list. But enough of their swing and wiggle numbers, I am here to talk knits. Big knits save me throughout the winter days. I still insist on donning a summer dress, refusing to reach for the sensible option of dressing for the weather. BUT a thick knit can just be casually thrown over a cotton dress and VOILA! I no longer will freeze in the big wide world.
I must admit finding a big knit suitable for Vintage wearers can be frustration. Like finding a nice pair of authentic 1940s sandals in sizes bigger than a 4....but that girls is another matter. Getting the balance right between not being too modern or being too granny (yes there can be such thing) can be tricky. Even the most experienced Vintage shoppers struggle.
I could breath a sigh of relief when I heard news of Miss Lady K's new knitwear. Her Annette Cardigan slots straight into your Vintage wardrobe without a hitch. I don't know about you, but I like my cardigans to be versatile. I need one that can be worn with trousers, dresses and skirts- the lot. And I am pleased to tell you that I have found just the thing. Let me introduce you to the new Annette cardigan from Lady K Loves.....
I can slip the red version over a plain off the shoulder top with my pedal pushers and wear open for a casual night out dancing.
And I can don the navy varient, pair up with my sailor hat (which goes perfectly with the gold anchor buttons on the cardigans) and wear buttoned up for a cosy day browsing antique stalls.
The knits have a wonderful stretch to them, so you don't have to worry about adding plenty of layers underneath. My favourite part is the oversized collar. Perfect for pulling up over cold ears!!
