Vintage Cars and Black and White Layers

Last Wednesday with a group of friends we travelled to Ulverstone, on our states North West coast, to
view some truly magnificent vintage cars that are visiting from all over Australia to take part in a
Vintage Car Rally.
Layers in black and white were the order of the day as it was rather cool and windy.I choose my black Moyuru pants, Paula Ryan white shirt, Sarah Pacini top, short sleeve wool jacket , black wool beret, assorted black and white bangles.

I am not really a car aficionado but I appreciate the passion of the vintage car enthusiasts and the workmanship that goes into these lovingly restored vehicles.The attention to detail in the leather work ,the
timber trims and that brass work is a joy to behold.

I was rather taken with this one , it was from the Brush Motor Car Company based in Michigan, and dates
from 1907-1913. I am pretty sure the man on the left behind the car is the proud owner. Don’t you love his
leather flying hat and goggles.

This lady, all dressed in cream, kindly let me photograph her. Many of the vintage owners were dressed
in period themed costume for the occasion.

    I'm not much of an old auto aficionado either but you really have to appreciate the elegant design mindset of the era which is something that, you my dear, capture perfectly right here in the present day. Your shoes and your hats and your lovely mix of designs and colors. You are a true Classic. XXOO

      Connie, that is a lovely thing to say.I guess I do my own version of classic while not adhering to any rules unlike the owners of these vintage cars that must abide by the guidelines as far as restoration is concerned.

    I enjoyed the photos so much – the details are incredible, such charm and elegance in old cars. And your outfit is fabulous! Also with elegant and very special details, such as your gloves, the collar with a flower pin, and these lovely shoes! I also love this lady's cream outfit, what a beauty!

      Thank you Natalia, the attention to the finer details is what I appreciate most about these vintage beauties. Glad you liked the outfit, it follows along with your thoughts on wearing what really is our own style and the joys of that.

    Your black and white outfit, complete with perfect looking "driving gloves" compliments the beautiful vintage cars, Jill. Isn't it fabulous to see the owners' passion for their cars? I do loved the lady in white, although I can't imagine how white stayed white for long in those cars of yesteryear! xx
