It’s not every day I don a crocheted ensemble, a seashell necklace that is weighty as it’s beautiful, and prance around the beach like a love-struck mermaid’s first time on land. But that’s the effect Salita Matthews‘ vibrant leather and sea-creature “Time Stands Still” necklace has on one. You can’t blame me for being hopelessly captivated by its composition, colour and character. Plus it even cajoled me into chanting ‘She sells seashells by the seashore.‘ I know. Hopeless.
Although your mind is now probably filled with exotic holiday scenes, why leave a crocheted ensemble sea-bound only? Wear it to lunch, dinner, or even to buy seafood, just add a little slip underneath for legal protection. I’d wear this to the library, to borrow a book on how to crochet. Think of all the endless possibilities: crochet dresses, scarves, bags, bikinis… they may even win a glance from Margherita Missoni.
[spoiler title=”中文版”]可能你的脑海里现在出现的画面是海边的度假场景，但若只将这套钩边衣裙带去游海不会太可惜吗？不如穿它去中餐，晚餐，或去买海鲜，但为了斯文，别忘记底下穿上一件衬裙。我会穿这套衣服去图书馆，去借关于钩边的书，学习怎样钩边。创作的可能性太多了：钩边裙，钩边围巾，钩边包，钩边比基尼，可能 Margherita Missoni都会找上门来。。。[/spoiler]
