Mixing it up in Black

 Winter is slowly edging toward Spring in my part of the world . Time to play in my closet and mix
it up a bit with items that have not had an outing for quite some time.

My black Moyuru skirt once again the perfect starting point, I knew this skirt was an absolute gem and has surely earned its place in my wardrobe.Don’t you just love it when your instincts are spot on. 

 This black leather jacket from Australian designers George Gross and Harry Ho has been lurking in
my closet for several years . It has a jewel like stud on each tiny square and at certain angles they catch the light and shine. On reflection I still am rather fond of this jacket so maybe it will come out
to play more frequently.

 My black suede ankle boots with their crystal studded zipper are from Fiordiluma and have been
with me for many years , so long they probably be considered vintage. They are now special occasion only, as sadly, the heel is a little high for me to wear yet alone walk in for too long but they are a bit special so they will stay.

To add to the sparkly theme I added this little purple veiled hat with its glitzy centre adornment.

      Thank you so much Tiina , even though I have had the jacket for ages it always raises comment because it is so unusual. I know we share the same idea about finding and repeating our perfect pieces.

    Wow! Seeing this jacket on Instagram did nothing to prepare me seeing it ON THE BIG SCREEN, Jill! (Maybe channelling a little bit of Mad Max here? You in the next big screen blockbuster principal role?!) It's fabulous, you look great wearing it too. xx
