Wearing Black – What a Change!
There is something oddly satisfying about dressing almost entirely in black. For someone who almost always wears a lot (!) of colour, donning an all-velvet ensamble today had me feeling especially Wednesday Addams-esque! I almost felt like I should have been wearing the notorious schoolgirl plaits, but opted for hair down instead – it is far too cold to have my ears revealed! Brr!
I’m so excited to finally able to wear this coat. It was sent to me last year by Bohemian Bisoux. It’s a genuine 1940s velvet riding jacket. It’s been keeping me warm throughout a cold spell over the last week, and it is truly a dream to wear! As I walk down the street I can’t help but think of the previous owners – a riding jacket has so many back-story possibilities! It’s quite peculiar thinking about where clothing ends up – now it’s keeping me toasty as I stroll down the streets of Christchurch! I paired it with a velvet cut out dress that’s for sale in my store, and my favourite vintage buckle boots. The bag is an old favourite from Golden Ponies..
