Beret - Dangerfield, everything else thrifted/vintage
Hi! I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. Mine was crazy busy, and it's only now at the tail end of it all that I'm able to start blogging again - I've barely had time to return text messages to friends.
Eli's sister came to stay with us this weekend with her partner and their daughter, and as it was their first time in Melbourne for a very long time we had to pack a lot in! This outfit is from the day we went to visit some of their relatives out near Eltham. It was a lovely cold (but as you can tell, very sunny) day and I wore this jacket for the very first time. I'm still not entirely convinced that I like it because it's rather boxy but it sort of worked.. I'm thinking some darts in the front might remedy this, but whether or not I'll get around to doing that is a totally different story!
This brooch is one of about 6 brooches/necklace pendants that I've collected over the years from op shops and markets. It's a very Australian-outback-esque scene made primarily from paperbark. It's a little hard to make out, but its got some trees and some birds in the top left hand side there. This one is a little melted up top (it came like that) but in otherwise good condition.
I posted another one from my collection on Instagram last friday which features a little bark boat on a bark sea. So cute.
I don't have much info about these pieces, and I haven't really done much research but I've been meaning to. Has anyone else come across any of these?
