Meet my twin sister.
Can you tell which one is me?
As a child, I always wanted a twin sister. I was intrigued every time I saw twins. I was actually
a little obsessed with it so much that my best friend and I used to dress alike sometimes. It’s probably why I didn’t mind my mom buying us matching outfits (or having the same dresses made for us) and why I loved buying mother-daughter outfits for Jean and me. Also, the reason why I still like buying the same clothes as her–besides the fact that I love her style! Heres are some of our same outfits.
I bought these lace blouses recently, first blue paisley …
… and then red paisley …
So now I have twin paisley blouses. I often buy things that I like in two or more colours. Do you?
Paisley gets its western name from the town of Paisley in Scotland (a centre for textiles where paisley designs were produced) but the design is actually a pattern originating in Persia.
My first memory of the paisley pattern was when it became popular in the ’60s; my brother had a colourful paisley shirt. Unfortunately, I only have a black and white photo.
Paisley remains one of my favourite patterns because it reminds me of my brother Johnny.
Do you have any paisley?
