We’ll Never Be Royals

The colour purple—not the book, nor the movie—is commonly associated with royalty. In case you were asking. Oh, you weren’t?

The ripe age of 10 was when I first wore this purple, plaid, raw-silk midi skirt. It was part of my ‘Sunday Best’ repertoire; picked up at Glebe Side Kids and worn with disdain as the skirt was, at that time, a maxi and restricted my ability to race one to the jungle gym. Thanks to an elastic waist, I still wear it today. Why? Because it spans decades—literally—and works dressed up for a dinner party or dressed down for Sunday brunch.

What piece of clothing do you still wear from childhood?
