Three smart girls 1

Wednesday, 7 March 2007

"Three smart girls, who know the value of comfort, choose to wear knitted jumpers at informal afternoon tea parties; the high-necked, cable-fronted jumper is enchanting knitted in any pastel shade. Brunettes will be flattered in the striped, multi-coloured jumper, and the more vivid the colours chosen for the stripes, the smarter it will be. Blondes, of course, will choose the charming black and white model."
