{.don’t thank me. just live a good life.}

by devourslowly

I was recently a recipient of a Karen Walker voucher.  On it I noticed a store stamp that says ‘Don’t thank me.  Just live a good life.  – Karen Walker – ‘

I rather delight in this air of blasé confidence.  In fact this sense of nonchalant surety also epitomises her designs – fashionable without being fashionable.  It is not just about the clothes though.  I find it incredibly affirming to witness confidence in an environment where confidence is regularly interpreted as an expression of uncouth vulgarity.  New Zealand is a funny place… we all love to do well but we are never suppose to admit it…

After all that, I bought myself a cashmere cardi 🙂
