The unbearable longing for denim

When I was in 3 North in Glanmor Grammar School Pauline Greatrex came in one day wearing a denim bomber jacket she'd bought in an Oxfam shop. I was so envious. I have wanted a denim jacket ever since. I'm not sure why I've never bought one.

On Saturday I tried one on in Sainsburys. The shoulders stuck out a bit but it reminded of my yearning. I will have one!

P.S. I'm not sure how she got away with wearing a denim jacket to Glanmor: they were very strict about uniform. We had to wear our berets, at least while we were in sight of the school, and we had regular skirt length measurements.

Hello from Idaho and found your blog though the way of Cherie's. I had a few denim jacket and I like them.
But over the years I became heavy and they don't do much for a fat person.

If you fine the time stop in for a cup of coffee

I agree that they probably look better on slim, tall, young women, Dora! But hey.
