It was the early ’90s. I was at a friend’s Batmitzvah and I was sat at a table full of very pleasant girls, one of whom could not get over the outfit another of the guests was wearing.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve thought I was funny-looking.
I’m not the only one. The second she clapped eyes on me, Tutti, thought I was pretty funny-looking too. And once she realised that any criticism of her new baby sent The Goat into paroxysms of rage, my chicken-legs and I had no chance at all.
It’s my last day of work today, and my last blog post for 2013.
Tutti came over yesterday on her way home from a friend’s 60th birthday, and even when I think I’ve seen every outfit she can possibly put together it’s like BOOM! More fabulous than ever.
If there’s one thing I really love, it’s looking at beautiful, interesting things. Especially beautiful, interesting, quirky things that have been made by creative, talented people. So, I was in my element on Wednesday night at the launch of the Etsy pop-up store at 74 Castlereigh Street, Sydney.
