This blogpost is dedicated to my beautiful grandma who taught me confidence, love and fabrics.
The main idea on Friday was to meet up with my friends and join them for dinner. While weather has been playing with us going from 20 plus to 10 plus degrees during the day (try to deal with that), the “what to wear on a Friday night” becomes quite a challenge since you might go out with 23 degrees and a t-shirt and end up with 12 degrees and a cold. My stubbornness to remain summer dressed in a not so summer weather made me choose MAJE ‘s embroidered tulle slip skirt.
This skirt is everything that I once wished as a child, a grown up skirt made by tulle! Colorful, playful, which I can wear without missing my boldness, modernity and quirkiness. Actually all the adjectives above can also describe my childhood.
My grandma was a dressmaker. During summers I would spent my time in the south part of Greece, Peloponnese. I remember the sound of her vintage Singer machine. She loved making dresses and skirts for us (me and my cousin). She would show us magazines with different patterns, colors and shapes to choose from. Then we would find the textile and she would start with her creation. The noice of the machine would wake me up in the mornings and I remember looking forward to see how far she went with my new design. When the skirt or dress would be ready I would wear it with pride. Back to my moms place things were still colorful and chic but were not made by grandma.
When the MAJE embroidered tulle skirt and I met in Steen & Strøm there was a moment where the flower patterns took me back to my childhood when grandma embroidered pink and red flowers on my skirt.
