My Own Bird...

January 1974

I picked up this card in a shop the other day.
I liked the description on the back of the card.
It all seems so simple when you look at a wardrobe this way.

The Albini Bird
What you'll be wearing
if you're an Albini bird.

Skirts long.
Busy gloves and hats.
Small spots and narrow stripes 
through to checks and big squares.
A circle of black linen skirt, 
peep-toe sandals one-inch high,
black and white, straight from Milan.
