WWFW - 1 blouse 70 decades

You may have noticed my absence over the past weeks?  I know.  I'm sorry.  I have been extremely busy sulking.  You see, the wretched bog creature deleted a nearly completed post minutes before I was due to publish, so I have starved it of my attention.  Now that that I have brought Blogger down to its scrawny knees, it would be cruel to leave you pining after my witisisms and wisdoms any longer.  So, cheres amies, wihout further ado and hopefully to-do, here is the previously-cursed now newly-reconstructed post:

I am conducting a little experiment to see if an an item of clothing can appeal to a teenage fancy as well as an OAP and if a forty something inbetweener can frollick happily in the same item.    Surely a bit of styling can keep breathing new life into old threads.  We are not talking vintage revival here - we know you kids like your granny boots - but what if the boot was on the other foot?

We begin with test subject number 1; a lurex leopard print blouse by Roberto Cavalli from my favourite e-tailor www.net-a-porter.  At £1,745 you would want it to last you a lifetime!
