To Be a Joiner

This jumper has been in my closet for many, many years.
Every Fall I look forward to pulling it out and seeing if it fits still works.

It originally belonged to my Mother when she was in college.

Look! She left a few of her dance moves in the pockets.

As I've mentioned before, this 30 for 30 thing was NOT my idea.  I unapologetically stole borrowed it from Kendi @ Kendi Everyday.  Well, today the mastermind behind this whole shebang is starting a 30 for 30 of her own and she's enlisted 300+ friends to join her in the madness.  There's remixing going on all over the interwebs.  It's spreading like you wouldn't believe.  I'm warning you, use protection as you surf or don't come crying to me when your closet shrinks to a mere 30 pieces.

Holy vintage jumper! I love the colors and style! I wish my mom had held onto some of her old clothes...

That jumper is really cool. I need to stock up on a couple turtlenecks for laying under dresses and such. I'm just so unprepared for fall.

Really cute-- even cuter because it has POCKETS!! :)

(I must have been a kangaroo in another life or something. I adore pockets on anything...)

Umm, yikes. I guess I hit the button too many times, sorry. Did NOT mean to post the same thing a million times...

That jumper is way cute! You would never know it was borrowed/vintage [I'm sure Moms don't like the word vintage but it's better than old]. And sweet dance moves :]

OK, I just have to say...you are one of my favorites ever! I don't know if I've seen a cuter human being. You look so adorable and I LOVE your oxfords. I think I have the same pair in brown!

This is so mod! Like 60s Mod Squad! I love it and you wear it so well! ~Serene

Ashley said...

yeah, you can tell that jumper is vintage. 1970s? or 60s? It's super cute.

love the dance moves!

LOVE this! I used to wear jumpers with turtlenecks all the time when I was little, although you are probably way more stylish than I was then.

P.S. The Social Network was awesome. Due Date is next on my list of movies to see.

Amazing! I love that your mother kept it, that you found it and claimed it, and that you included it in your 30 pieces. All very wonderful.

It never looked better. (At least in this decade.) fun to see it on you. Lots of great memories! Are you sure those dance moves were in the pockets?
