Sonya asked Ishna about her rather 1990’s looking suit blazer.  A great discussion ensued about childhood influences and what our mothers wore when we were growing up…

“Yes, it is from the 1990s and yes I did buy it second-hand.  I’m not sure how I feel about it…  it has got these shoulder pads and stuff.  The colours work really well with my outfit.  It has this really fine pin-stripe in burnt orange that you might not be able to see in the photos.  I know the whole blazer and mom-jeans look is kinda in at the moment, so it feels right.  But it’s also something my Mum would have worn when she was my age, and so I have this memory of her when I wear it.  Yes I think our childhoods do affect how we respond to clothes, as in feelings that go with memories”.
