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.
