Hello everyone , hope all is well in your part of the world.
I have been rather busy working more hours than my normal couple of days a week leaving little spare time for the blog . Apologies for missing your posts , hopefully I will catch up this week.
Almost time to undertake the season change over in my wardrobe so I have been playing with some of my favourites. The first of these is the dark blue Rundholz skirt that I wear year round and was paired again with the dark floral Pom blouse that I purchased last year.
Having a peek in my wardrobe has made me realise I have been tempted by way too many print blouses , some retail buys and others recycled that really are not me and don’t work with much of my wardrobe, so on the change over they will go . You really would think by now I would know better.
Today was a bad hair day and on days like this my striped ms Edgley turban is invaluable. Once again I am debating what to do with my hair, both cut and colour. Do I cut or grow , go au natural or back to blonde or stay red , not really sure at present but feel ready for change.
I wore this outfit a while ago on a cool Autumn morning to run a few errands. It is a combination of recycle finds , 1980’s leather skirt , Vivienne Westwood cardigan , found a few years ago , French leather hat, silver McQueen brogues and John Paul Gaultier bag.
The full leather skirt does take me back every time I wear it , as I owned one similar in the early 1980’s and rather stupidly parted with it and then regretted it ever since so was thrilled when I found this one.
I had been on the look out for silver brogues for quite some time as my last pair were chewed by Raffy when he was a puppy. I was over the moon when I discovered this pair at recycle store, Bruce, in Hobart a while ago . They are McQueen , made in Italy and the most wonderful softest leather.
A few weeks ago I visited my friend Julianne at Return to Splendour and returned home with three hats.This rather wonderful vintage wide brim straw will be a welcome addition to my Summer hat collection. Worn here with art deco style earrings a thrift purchase years ago for $4.00.
This colourful handmade hat was another purchase that day . I am still unsure as to will I leave the back as is or make a rosette to finish .
This little feather number has been with me for some time after I discovered it at a thrift store . It was made by an Australian milliner who focused on race headwear.
Last but by no means least in my hat parade is this red hat by Sydney milliner Axel Mano, a recycle purchase from Red Fox Vintage a while ago. I haven’t had the opportunity to give this one an outing yet but it will happen as I am more determined than ever to wear hats at every opportunity .
