Native Point is a small nature reserve by the Tamar River and a spot I have used on previous occasions. The artistic side of me enjoys the play of more dressier clothing against the bush setting.
Today it was the perfect spot to wear some of my favourite black pieces and a charteuse hat.
I purchased this chartreuse hat from Tanith Rowan , an Australian milliner based in the Blue Mountains. Tanith has a love of vintage and this is reflected in her designs.The shape and style of this hat and the fact that it was in my favourite chartreuse colour convinced me that it had to be mine.
Nothing like a statement hat to raise the spirits during the Winter was also a thought that ran through my mind as I pressed the buy button to purchase the hat through Etsy. I am so glad I did, it is a most welcome addition to my Winter hat collection.
No secret that black is an all time favourite of mine , especially when I am playing with texture.
The basis of today’s blacks is this full leather skirt , from a local recycled clothing store, that has made several blog appearances and a Paula Ryan knit that has kept me warm for many Winters.
Adding to the textural element was a Mongolian lamb wrap , that is so warm and the belt above ,both recycle purchases . I am so enjoying being able to find interesting pieces that otherwise would be beyond my budget.
Black ankle boots from Estilio Emporio that were from a local store named La Cigalle , that sadly is now closed. The owner , Katie , a colourful French woman, amassed an eclectic collection of stock from all around the world. The store stocked homewares , gift lines , jewellery and fashion and accessories.
