Hello everyone , I hope this finds all well in your corner of the world.
As the blog title suggests we have experienced consistent rain and wind over the last few weeks here in Tasmania . Our state has experienced some flooding in some areas but has gotten off lightly compared to any other regions of Australia where floods have caused great devastation.
We took advantage of a break in the weather to head to the garden to take a few outfit shots. Standing in front of the Guelder Rose , which has taken rather a battering in all the wind and rain. I planted this tree when we moved here close to fourty years ago . It brings back memories of my parents house as they had a huge one in their garden. I also failed to heed my mother’s advice that it was planted too close to the house , so much pruning is needed to keep it under control. We think we know it all in our early twenties don’t we?.
Standing at our front gate under the rose arch that in a few weeks time will be covered in masses of tiny pink blooms of the Cherub rose.
Continuing to wear what I like this time a mix of mainly recycled finds , the bird pattern vest was purchased locally at a now gone pop up recycle store , it has a label that says Giovanni and is made in the U.S. , paired with Moyuru wide pants, a black mesh top, handmade earrings , bangles , Robert Clergerie bronze sandals , top hat and glitzy necklace (both from Red Fox Vintage).
A closer look at the details on my vest, I will have some fun playing with this over Summer. I found the earrings at a small shop in Richmond several months ago and promptly put them away and forgot all about them, silly me. I am fond of the necklace even though it differs from my usual taste , which is much less tizzy. I have mentioned in precious posts how I had searched for a top hat that actually fitted for ages so was delighted when I came across this one still in its original box. I am now on the look out for a Summer top hat – if anyone knows of a seller please let me know .
Admiring some of my first roses – this is Gregiore Staechelin and has a wonderful scent .
That’s all of my ramblings for now friends , have a wonderful week and remember dress for you.
