A Love Letter

Dear Johnnie Boden,

Thank you for making clothing that is truly inspirational.

Even though I cannot afford even the smallest stitch of anything from you, I remain a loyal and devoted fan. I promise that if my ship - or even my paddle boat - ever comes in, I will spend lots of pretty shinny pennies at your shop.

For now I can only draw inspiration and hope. Hope for the gal like me who likes a little whimsy in her grown-up clothing.

The kind of gal that appreciates color and texture.

The kind of gal who places value on both covering the majority of her nakedness and not looking like a prude.

The kind of gal who does not enjoy wearing things that make her look pregnant when she is not, or things that make her look boring when she is not.

A gal like me who needs to be able to look stylish and wrestle polar bears in the same day, in the same outfit.

Also, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your deep understanding that a denim skirt is a timeless & never to be under estimated wardrobe essential. Your continued endorsement means more than you can know.

Thank you for inspiring me for the coming season when so many others have failed.
I will do my best to honor your vision, while patching together my best attempt to re-create your look from my existing items, thrift store finds and clearance bargains.
I promise to give all the credit to you for any compliment I may receive and will always remember to spread the word of your loveliness far and wide.

Your loyal and devoted window shopper,
Jerusalem Greer

    Hides the leg chub better than shorts!


  5. Great letter!!

  6. Love the letter-and those photos! You're right-a denim skirt is timeless-especially when paired with black tights and fab boots! xo-Mel

  7. As the "fall season available NOW" email arrived this week, and once again, I agonized over whether or not I could justify the expense (and once again, I cannot) - you wrote this at exactly the right moment. WELL DONE! :)

  8. how clever you are and how much I can relate to this post...and I do so hope that your ship comes in someday and that it's a big one...


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
