Inspired by Superted?

Saturday, 7 August 2010



For anyone who isn't British and within the age range of about 25-30, that reference has probably whooshed straight past you. Check out the intro to one of my all time favourite cartoons for more details:






Never let it be said that I pass up an opportunity to wear polka dots! Whilst I don't have the requisite red mohawk and the colour palette isn't exactly right, there's something about this jumper that makes me feel very like Spotty. It's certainly an 80s-tastic sort of ensemble anyway.



Jumper - H&M
Leggings - People Tree
Pumps - Dorothy Perkins
Ring - New Look

  1. OMG Superted!!! Takes me back. I was a massive fan when I was little and Spotty was the favourite.

    Lovely jumper. Might have to nick into H&M on my lunch tomorrow. Your ring is very pretty.

  5. I love Superted, I remember having the teddy with removable cape. Now that I'm older I laugh at the part in the intro where it says "a spotty man", I don't even know why, it just sounds funny!

    Anyway, I wouldn't have thought of Spotty without you mentioning it, you just look nice!
