Just hanging around in a winding country lane wearing an Amy Rigg top and no name wide black linen pants. The Amy Rigg top is part of a set that I purchased from a friend a few years ago. Amy Rigg was an American designer known for her distinctive designs with a Victorian era vibe and fine detailing. My friend lived in the U.S. for several years and this was a find at a craft fair.
Accessories for the day include Paco Herero kitten heel sling backs, a pair of green bangles , old Chanel sunnies, vintage clip on earrings and a necklace a gift many years ago from my sons.
The top is an interesting colour a soft green grey , not quite grey or beige or greige for that matter. Apparently greige is a colour between grey and beige , a new one for me. Although I will admit it does describe my hair at present after a visit to the hairdresser and a tint to tone down the brassy bits. Still not sure if I am ready to embrace my natural after so many years of vibrant colour.
Another day and more beige , this is the outfit I wore for a day out in the little town of Westbury . The jacket is Scanlan and Theodore , an Aussie design label known for quality , interesting garments. The jacket was a recycle find a few years ago . I paired the jacket with Moyuru pants.
I found this interesting Klasno hat at one of my local recycling stores Return to Splendour recently , I fell for its beehive shape as well as the chocolate colour. Sadly the store is closing soon , so I was a naughty girl and came away with two other special hats to add to my collection.
The bronze Gucci sunnies have been with me long enough to now be classed as vintage.
On another note on my recent trip to Hobart I came across a book on my wish list , Bill Cunningham , 50 years on the Street. Bill Cunningham was an American fashion photographer for the New York Times , and was known for his candid and street photography. This book combines so many of my interests fashion , photography and history through style , how could I resist . Below are a few of my favourite images.

Hi Jill, I love your posts and your interesting clothes. And particularly love the jewellery,I have collected costume jewellery since I was a teenager. A very long time ago. I do think you should go back to the beautiful auburn hair colour! Mine was naturally red til my mid forties ,as it faded I went blonde for a few years but am now back to auburn,quite bright! I am 80 and get a lot of compliments on my hair, so please go back to yours! Best wishes Judy

Thank you so much Judy , I am pleased you enjoy my posts and my clothes. I too am thinking that I really did like my brighter hair best . Good on you for having the hair colour that suits you regardless of age. I would love to see a photo of you and your auburn hair. Cheers, Jill.
I love your hat. Great find!
Many thanks Mirielle , I am rather pleased with the hat.
Why bother with a hair color you don’t really like. On the other hand, the softer color softens your skin in a good way. That necklace is beautiful, your sons do know how to pick a gift!
You are so right Nancy , my thinking is I will return to warmer tones soon. The boys do have rather good taste, I love the necklace and it works with so many things.
I love that book! I bet Bill Cunningham would have loved to have encountered you in all your finery.
Your hat is incredible and I love the shape of your jacket – far too fabulous to be called beige or greige! xxx
Thank you Vix , I am pleased with the hat , loved its shape. The jacket is a favourite of mine. I thought you would enjoy the book and its fabulous photos . It really is a history of fashion.
I HAVE THAT BOOK!YOU just reminded me I have not finished it!!!

Thank you Elizabeth , I was pleased with the hat. It is such an interesting book , a ride through fashion over the years. I do love his attention to detail. I will take a peak at Ageless Style later.
That Bill Cunningham book looks great and I love the combination of the top and skirt together what a great set! Your necklace is such a nice pairing with the statement buttons as well 🙂
Hope that you are having a great weekend 🙂 We spent the day with my mum yesterday shopping the sales for the leap day (and getting some great toy bargains we’ve put away for the kids birthdays!)
Many thanks Mica . I was very pleased to find the book here in Tassie, it has some amazing photos. Sounds like you had a productive shopping day with your Mum.
