The future king Manuel II of Portugal, when prince. 1890s,
Knitting Inspiration: hoods. Like, fairy tale hoods. I read somewhere that “capes are in” this year and, while I don’t give a flying fuck about that sort of thing, it does mean that suddenly all these fetching hooded capelet/shawl things are sprouting like mushrooms. (Get it? Mushrooms? Fairy rings….fairy tales? You’re right, that was a bit of a stretch.)
I’m particularly drawn to ones that are heavily textured or almost insubstantial. There was a thing with hooded scarves a few years back that I never really committed to; having seen these more voluminous alternatives, I suddenly understand why I waited. Unlike hoodies, which are ubiquitously casual to the point where I refuse to wear them, and hooded scarves, which make me think of kids who can’t be trusted to not lose individual cold weather items and are thus given a combination mittens/hood/scarf thing, these are poised somewhere between little kid make-believe and massive sophistication. I also suspect that they won’t cause hat hair, although I might have to line them to prevent unfortunate bobby pin accidents.

you know me so well, bless you
#all you’re doing is echoing anti-latin/southern european sentiment that started centuries ago //this said it all
and yet they think they’re so learned and advanced wow
apparently tan = poc ??????
They look white but their names don’t look white in the US, so they can’t be white! I cannot stand tumblr sjws, I really can’t.
We’re “poc” until the atlantic slave trade is mentioned, then it’s okay to be white.
the fact that people believe Portuguese people are POC really makes me lose faith in all of you
ah yes i had nearly forgotten this fact
thanks for reminding me anon
