Mad About Madras
In the 80s-early 90s, I had serious madras mania. I had madras shorts, a madras dress, and even a turquoise madras bathing suit. Seems my madra madness has returned....or maybe it never left? It's sort of entwined with my addiction to anything plaid...which fits well with my 30s obsession. Behold, two lovely specimens of distinctly madras-y summer garments from my favourite era in fashion history! That playsuit on the cover of Vogue reminds me so much of the "romper" my junior high bff used to wear religiously. Nothing new under the sun and all that . . . My favourite madras bespoke dress is DEFINITELY the Catrina in nudeedudee's shop. YUM! If only that money tree would hurry up and sprout those bills on its branches!!
