What I Wore: A mash up of dramatic & boho
Country Road, 100% cotton, from about 20 years ago.
A cats eye polished stone from Giorgio Armani.
Very dramatic - nothing boho about this.
One of the few brown things that goes anywhere near my face but the interplay with black & the shapes make it work.
Weighs a tonne & cost the same.
About 12 years old.
The layering necklaces
Both from a Kaboodle stand in a Westfield somewhere for around $30 each...the ball one has a watch on one side & is a see through, to show the watch mechanism on the other. It spins around on its axis. We love each other alot.
A distant cousin of the shirt, a current season Country Road scarf in a wool mix $69.
Also one of the few off white/cream things I wear near my face.
It is still available, although it was part of the first AW 2013 drop where they showcased B&W window pane checks a la Dries Van Noten.
Hammock & Vine, around $90, reduced.
Very good Aussie brand for large thighs & not so large hips.
From the larger David Jones stores.
Dont fall over - I havent changed my bag for the next 6 months. Just for the day. I remembered this baby & thought she may like to spend a day with new (& old) friends. This was largely made possoble b/c a few days ago, I cleaned out my day bag, so everything was organised & transferable.
A Jamin Puech from a Belinda warehouse sale about 6 years ago. I paid $400 but RRP on this brand's bags starts at $800. Scanlan & Theodore also carry the range.
If you like their Facebook page, they have lovely photo updates - very French and quite bohemian.
Look at all the detail - different pattern & shape patches, stitches, the turquoise beads, the velvet ribbons...& its all on the side...
the base is a nappa leather, very soft....
front detail....& notice the pom pom closure on the cotton string....
Clements Riberio from Myer, < $150 a few years ago.
The ankle length pants showcase the metal ankle straps very well.
