Magdalena on the right in Blue Fish

I first came across Blue Fish Clothing at a craft fair more than several years ago. I fell in love with it! For me, when I’m wearing these clothes, I feel more like myself than in anything else. Why? Because I feel that the clothing is a throwback to styles of yesteryear and because that’s the sort of person I am.

I am a musician/composer, a painter and a fiber artist. I share what I know with many people here in Princeton, New Jersey at no cost to them. I am all about hugs. That’s payment enough for me. I have a large following of women in my knitting group and I’m often complimented on my clothes.

My husband a I ventured out to Nova Scotia for a knitting retreat. It was a long rip because I have multiple sclerosis and for various reasons we chose to drive and then take the ferry across into Canada. I packed my Blue Fish Clothes because what I wanted most of all was comfort. We had an interesting conversation one night while walking on the boardwalk of a quaint little fishing village. There were many little shops and there was a festival atmosphere even though it was a cool and foggy night. We walked along and passed many of the shops, but on our return I decided to stop at a couple of them for souvenirs. When I entered one of the stores, the lady behind the counter said, “I saw you walk by earlier, and I thought to myself, she must be an artistic person.” I was surprised and I asked her how she knew that. She replied with, “by the way you are dressed!” I was wearing a four square pant and my oversized sweater both with beautiful patches on them.

I was tickled pink by the comment. If people can look at me and see what I am on the inside because of what I am wearing, then I’m proud to wear these clothes.

Unfortunately, we often judge a book by its cover. But because they are drawn to me, once they look behind the cover (my Blue Fish outfits), they are pleasantly surprised that what they perceive of me is who I am. And what I am is a Blue Fish gal with an artistic soul.

Blue Fish says it all!

    I’ve been wearing Blue Fish for 30 years, first seen at the Shadyside Arts Fair in Pittsburgh. Recently a friend said to me, ” I know people who collect art but you are the only person I know who wears it!”. I still wear t-shirts and vests from early 1990′s. Also, wearing a size 0 delights me!
