A Car Named Beatrix
Yesterday I was treated to an afternoon of driving in the most amazing vintage car. It belongs to my friend, Alex, who has affectionately named it ‘Beatrix.’ Beatrix is a vintage Triumph Herald, and is the perfect vehicle for a warm winter’s day. She has gorgeous floral seat covers, and even a Hawaiian hula dancer who lives on the wooden dashboard. We ventured from one side of town to the other, finishing with a drive up to the top of the Christchurch hills. We both brought along our cameras and spent much of our time together taking pretty photographs of the scenic locations – and of Beatrix too!
I wore one of my latest purchases; a genuine 1970s waistcoat. It has an amazing zig-zag pattern, along with an oversized blue/black faux fur collar. It is oh-so warm! It has been my go-to wardrobe staple for the last few days! I’m usually more of a 1960s girl, but have been finding the most divine 1970s pieces lately!
