Hat - vintage, skirt - made by me, everything else thrifted
Another one from last weekend - we took our guests on an epic walking tour of the city which ended at the Clear-It outlet in Fitzroy, where I subsequently bought four cardigans.. heh.
I was rather proud of my outfit this day, I wore not one but three items I've never worn before - the vest, the hat and the blazer. The blazer I bought YEARS ago at Savers because it has a cute velvet bow and it's red.. but recently I realised it is (or would be) pretty 1940's looking.. after I removed the GIANT shoulder pads, that is.The hat is one of two new hat acquisitions from a vintage store down the road from my work. I saw them there when I went wedding dress "shopping" and couldn't stop thinking about them so I went back a week later and they were still there so I bought them.
They're both rather plain but good basic hats that will go with many an outfit!
I felt rather awkward taking these photos (hence the boring, frozen looking poses) as we were down a side street of the very busy and trendy Brunswick St in Fitzroy, and people kept walking past and staring or needing to pass through where I was standing.. I still haven't conquered my fear of taking photos in public places and I'm thinking I may need to force myself into it as the area we are soon to move to has many beautiful tree-lined streets and a river and old houses with lovely gardens spilling out onto the footpath. These things need documenting, you know!
