I was on a mission to find an interesting background and I immediately fell for all the tones in this distressed wood. As for the clothes, my mum knitted the cardi in the late 70’s for my aunt; the leather jacket underneath it, serves to prevent the scratchy wool itching me and give a harder edge to all the pastel-coloured prettiness. The ruffled, polka-dot top is worn backwards; those ruffles would be sorely missed if they were tucked away under all the other layers.
