Last week, I went down to Melbourne for Social Traders‘ ‘Social Enterprise Masters Conference 2016‘. It was also a chance to see family, friends and hang out down south.

Obviously, because I love working at The Social Outfit, much of the clothing I wear and show here are exclusive pieces from our creative and ethical social enterprise. But that is only part of what I wear. So this post is an opportunity to share some other gear I’ve been wearing lately…

Earlier this year I went back to South Africa with some of my family, for a holiday. It was a lovely opportunity to see what locally-made, and African-continent fashion was available. When I saw this two-piece Kisua outfit, I was happy! Here I am wearing it in May…

Some stuff I’m wearing: Glasses from Dresden, Claire Pain leopard brooch, handmade beads, Kisua two-piece outfit from South Africa, second-hand Adidas shoes.

STS 254 2

Then this is me this year on my birthday, in May also. It was a delight to see how I could match this locally-made South African peplum top with The Social Outfit‘s own silk wide leg pants…

STS 254 3Some stuff I’m wearing: Glasses from the op shop, Tatty Devine earrings and mirror-parrot necklace, PCF ring-pull bracelet from The Social Outfit, Plus-Fab top from South Africa, The Social Outfit silk wide leg pants and gold fabric belt, Birkenstock sandals, Ken Done bag, Red Parka bag from Tasmania.

STS 254 6

And then for a Sunday catch up with friends – and the suddenly cooler Sydney weather – it was my *perfect* chance to wear this unworn, 1980s Canadian-made Ken Done denim jacket. I found it quite recently on Etsy and it was too good not to add to the collection!
