I’ve decided that rainbows are going to be absolutely everywhere in Spring, encouraged by Pernille Taisbaek in this post of hers.
At first I thought what would be fun would be to wait until the very best rainbow sweater arrived in, I don’t know, Topshop or Zara – or actually more likely Mango, Gap or J Crew. But then 48 hours went by and I got fed up with waiting.
A note on Pernille Taisbaek – she looks on the surface like your worst nightmare: rake thin, Scandinavian, with access to an insane amount of free designer clothes and holidays, rake thin… And yet, her blog is really excellent. It’s not not a collection of mad, unwearable things put together completely randomly, (which is what fashion seems so often to be, even to fashionable people), it’s a pretty razor-sharp edit of what’s out there.
Okay, yes: you and I cannot afford pretty much any of the clothes she features, but you get the idea. I started looking at her blog almost from behind my hands-too-scared-to-look, but now I go to it regularly – and now that I know she’s on the rainbow wagon, why, she’s my new best friend.
