Today’s post is a bit of a trip down memory lane . I am standing on the steps of The Quill and Cane Restaurant , the scene of my first date with my husband, John . My goodness that was a long time ago , 1973 in fact. Back then this newly renovated hotel and restaurant was the best one in town.
Here we are , circa 1973, me with short brown hair and wearing black , if memory serves me correctly this was a long crepe dress with wide bell sleeves. John looking rather handsome wearing a suit and tie .
My outfit also bought back memories . The Moyuru pants were purchased a few years ago to wear in Melbourne to attend the university graduation of my youngest son , Callum. The recycled Scanlon and Theodore jacket accompanied me on my trip to Paris in 2016 . I remember wearing this same outfit , minus the hat and bag , and worn with different shoes to the Museum of Decorative Arts to see the most wonderful exhibition , 200 years of fashions.
I have owned my floral Spencer and Rutherford for many years and it has been with me on many special occasions . When I took it from its place on Sunday I found a ferry ticket inside and discovered it was from 2013 and a trip to Sydney with friends to celebrate my 60th. birthday. The ferry ride on Sydney harbour was to an amazing restaurant for my birthday dinner.
Not that night but the next day enjoying the delights of Sydney harbour.
I also wore my new to me vintage hat that I purchased a couple of weeks ago.
The hat is from the 1960’s , so no doubt has a history of being worn on many special occasions , maybe to the races or a wedding .
Do you find certain outfits evoke special memories ?
