A wee little while ago I went shopping, and picked up this:
So far, so good. But then I thought: Hark! I'll also need a wee little cardigan or two to go with my cute summer dresses.
So into the city I went. I had four criteria the cardigans had to meet:  They had to be green and red, to match the dresses;  they needed to be made out of natural fibres;  ideally made in Australia by an Australian company (gotta watch those clothing miles); and  they needed to be cute! And wearable!
I looked. And I looked. And then I looked some more. Now, if you are in the market for a nylon yellow very uncute cardigan with bows and frills and frippery of all sorts adorning it, I'm your girl. I know exactly where to find one. Or many. For they were in every single bloody shop. And all made in China, to boot (may I now ask, when did Australia stop producing knitwear?) And they all cost in the vicinity of $120 plus.
Now, in the words of Mary Poppins, that will never do! So I turned to the trusty internets. And what did I find?
I found Cherry! Cherry is the creation of the incredibly talented Anna of My Fashionable Life (and what a fashionable life it appears to be!). Now, run, don't walk, to the link, and have a click clickety click. Trust me, she's a beauty! Seriously - how cute is this cardi? It's sweet, and summery, and modern yet kinda vintage. Sigh. Just exactly - but exactly! - what I was looking for.
So of course I needed to run out and buy some of this:So if you see a girl wearing a cute summer dress with a cute summer cardi in the yarn and fabric shown above, chances are it'll be me, so come on over and say hello. I have a feeling that it's going to be a splendid summer!
