The lovely Emma at wafflesandblethers
sent me this lovely bookworm award.
Rules: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 46. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences.
My nearest book was Ossie Clark 1965-1974 by Judith Watt. I turned to page 45, as there are pictures on 46-47.
"In the middle of the room stood the fitter/technician, Mr Polaris, and at the far end behind her desk sat Janey Ironside. She managed to balance authority with sympathy and very sure judgement. Her aim was to help you do the very best you could in your own style. When she said 'I don't think this is working, do you?' you knew it was not a question. The textile designer Natalie Gibson was present at the degree show in June 1965, held at the Gulbenkian Hall. 'It was the days when you would have a wedding dress at the end of the collection: Ossie made a huge white dress with fairy lights, very magical'.
So, quite appropiately, this now goes to 5 bloggers who I know have a love of books, fashion history and/or Ossie Clark:

The Lovely EmmaPeelPants @ Vintage A Peel
The Lovely Marian @ House of Style

To everyone else, have a great weekend, whatever you get up to!!
