FUENGIROLA DID NOT disappoint with the colorful costumes and flamboyant fashions at the World People‘s Fair. But it wasn’t alway easy to tell the difference between the participants and the spectators.
FUENGIROLA NO DECEPCIONÓ con los coloridos trajes y modas extravagantes en la Feria Internacional de los Pueblos. Pero no siempre fue fácil distinguir la diferencia entre los participantes y los espectadores.
If you’ve been with me since August, you might remember the huge collection of knitwear, all made by My Mother The Dowager Duchess. In addition to the sweaters pictured in a post from August 25 (click here), I set aside photos of some special ones to share with you when I had the time. Well, I have the time.
Of the items pictured below, I only remember the first, which my mother made some time in the early 1960s. The others were all new to my eyes, so, while sorting through her photos, I was really pleased to find a shot from 1984 of the Duchess wearing the last one.

WITH INDIVIDUAL CRYSTAL BEADS. THIS WAS PAIRED WITH A FLOOR-LENGTH TAPERED BLACK SKIRT (ALSO MADE BY THE DUCHESS). CLASSY.
1984. THE DIFFICULT YEARS SHOW IN HER EYES. (BUT NO DOUBT THAT WAS CLUB SODA IN THE CUP.)
