I will often go into my bedroom to do one thing, and find myself somehow drawn to my wardrobe where an all-out impromptu SartorialStyleSesh will unfold — it can gobble me up for a fat hour or two sometimes!
I cannot tell you how much I bliss out on these stretches! Like I said before, I am a fiddler – I like to experiment & play, especially with the old stuff. You can still totally rock a look with your old shizz!
And speaking of old shizzle, may I present 3 pieces that represent! I bought this silk, metallic-look Country Road dress at the Spencer Street DFO in Melbourne, in 2009. Sometimes I wear it as a tube dress, just letting the straps hang-ten under my arms; I may even add a gold vintage belt around the waist as a simultaneous complement-&-clash-colour scenario!
The singlet is Agent Ninetynine and worn back-to-front; A $5 Rozelle Markets find some years ago.
Number 3? My 6-year-old boots, and the ones that morphed from cowboy into ankle in one swift move!
