But there are other emotional aspects to dressing. I feel a real attachment to my maternal grandmother, I can still hear her laughing in my head when I want to. It always seemed to me she could do no wrong without being an actual perfectionist. Her shoulders were narrower than mine are (or you better believe I'd have her lamb coat) so clothing just generally wasn't going to pass down. Too much of my Dad's genes. Jewellery, however, doesn't care. Nor purses for that matter.
