Like a lot of people out there - I like a stripy top. I don't wear them much in the winter - big knits prevail - but when the buds appear on the trees and everything turns a little green, I start pulling out the stripy tops.
This CDG Play one which I got a few years back is a favourite. And it's all because of that cheeky little heart face. For some reason, it perks up this top, lends it a little bit of cool and and I feel a little funkier. I like my other stripy tops too, they all have their own merits but this one is a little more special. As Marie Kondo would say, this "sparks joy".
Infact it sparks enough joy for me to think about saving up for another one. I quite fancy a black and white one next :) It might take me a while ... they're not the cheapest stripy top on the block but they are certainly amongst the funkiest.
Last note :
- Strange but true but when Coggles existed as a real shop in York, the CDG tops were not allowed to be taken in to the changing rooms to be tried on incase they were damaged in any way. You could take in more expensive designer items but not the CDG tops.
- Mine is a size small and fits neat. There isn't much spare room. I might size up to a medium next time ... when I get round to saving up for it.
- Do you have a certain something in your wardrobe which "sparks joy"?
