I decided to spruce up today. A skirt & a heel. Still a long way off from the corporate look of matched suits, bit one step closer.
A black/brown Giorgio Armani bought second hand many years ago from Double Bay.
That was pre ebay and before I had realised it was actually Double Pay.
A Saint Grace brown tee. Not stuffy. Casual but smartened up due to the jacket. Sometimes that's all you need.
A European Culture cotton tee skirt in the same shade of bitter chocolate as the jacket & tee.
A fluke really. Good fluke.
The skirt has ribbing on the lower half giving it a super pencilled shape.
The front side seams extend lower than the back.
It was half price at $150 from Clientelle in St Ives.
I thoroughly recommend this brand to anyone that likes cool edgy shapes.
It was 2 side pockets which frankly give it bulk & I would prefer to have sewn down, soon.
A magnifying glass which I wear on black rubber (or a silver chain depending on the mood) - $25 from Note to self in Epping, Sydney.
A 3 ring silver chain from Zambesi in Paddington. $90 at their warehouse sale.
A threesome in blacks & silver
A twosome in black & silver.
I wore these Donna Karans out the door & in the car. As I drove down the road, I came back home to change them. These were honey toned brown (warm) while the whole outfit was a bitter chocolate or mushroom toned brown (cool). These shoes werent working with the clothes and I am glad I realised in time.
Here are the real shoes.
Bitter chocolate with a black round toe cap.
Ballin from Myer at a season end sale for around $130 from $520.
Not photographed, but were Voodoo Control Tops in Jabou.
A smokey/brown shade.
See you tomorrow, when i do a skirt again.
