Maybe it was the soul-draining heat or the power-punch of protein from having just eaten a veggie burger the size of my head, but yesterday was undoubtedly one of those everything-is-right-with-the-world experiences.
A 1960s blue/green/white explosion of flowers that can be worn with sleeves rolled up or down, with a (matching) belt or without, can be worn at any time of year, and is currently my favorite thing in my closet.
The tag reads Shannon Rodgers for Jerry Silverman, a brand that dates back to 1959.
How strange to think that a design that is nearly 60 years old is still as relevant and stylish as the day it was produced. I don't know how Shannon Rodgers and Jerry Silverman would feel knowing that their design is being worn and loved all those years later, but I like to think it would make them proud.
So thank you for your design, gentlemen. And don't worry - I'll take good care of it.
