Most of the time, not all, but most of the time my outfits are lead by what accessories I’m wearing or intend to wear. Ergo, I may have a necklace I know I want to wear, or a pair of shoes, or earrings. Then I build the rest of the outfit around that.
Case in point is the necklace I’m wearing in these photos, which was actually a belt that I picked up the vintage fair I attended on the Gold Coast recently. It was broken and the stall owner sold it to me for $5, probably wondering why anyone would buy a broken, unusable belt. I had other plans for it however and when I got home I whipped out the pliers and made it into the necklace you see me wearing in these photos. It still doesn’t have a clasp, it’s being held together with a safety pin (sssshhhhh!) but that’s easily remedied.
I simply couldn’t walk away from the tortoiseshell (fake of course), the pearls and the faded gold. It was kind of mad, which is just how I like my accessories. Lois Lane told me last week that I looked like a ‘zany nanna’ with my clashing prints and accessories. I took it as a compliment 😉
This jacket is new and I can’t stop wearing it. I wear it during the day, at night, at the supermarket, basically if I am required to wear a jacket this is it. It’s from St Frock and you of course can buy if online, as well as the Lady Melbourne blouse!
