This ‘Beaded Zebra Clutch’ is from their ‘Out Of Africa’ range and I love it with my Lady Petrova coat. I generally can’t stand the colour yellow, but for some reason, perhaps as it’s such a small dose I really love this clutch!
You might recall I was out at DFO Essendon last week (best bargain shopping in Melbourne) and while I was there to work, I managed a sneaky tour of the centre and picked up some ridiculous bargains, this blazer being one of them. Sportscraft is an established Australian label that while erring on the conservative side, do classics like a trench, merino sweater or wool blazer to perfection.
What’s your favourite thing to wear? And I’m not talking about a Snuggie or no-pants-are-the-best-pants attitude. Is there an item of clothing or style that you go back to again and again?
While realistically you’d have to wear tights rather than bare legs, I liked the challenge of mixing textures and shapes. In this instance it’s a fitted pencil skirt with a slouchy sweater, and clashing prints thrown in for good measure. To tie it all together I threw on a trench because if it’s good enough for Audrey Hepburn, it’s good enough for me.
What a busy day I had yesterday at DFO Essendon. Aside from my usual bargain hunting (more on that later) I was there to check out the finalists for the DFO Shopper of The Year.
Christian Dior unveiled their latest offering at the Paris couture shows this week and there was an abundance of full skirts, as a nod to the ‘new look’ pioneered by Christian Dior himself in the 1950s.
It’s freezing here at the moment, but I’m dying to wear the look this coming spring and I think this is how I’m going to go about it…
