Tell: The Social Studio silk scarf, Esprit skivvy from op shop, Barry Joseph dress from op shop, Sportscraft belt, Yoshi Jones skirt, Fluevog boots.

Share: This is yesterday’s outfit posted today. It shows how much I’m liking the whole double clothing layer thing: double-dress, double shirts, double-leotard, and double-skirts in this outfit (sort of)… ah, the things that keep me entertained!

So have a great day, on this auspicious 1$Day. I’ll be making my donation. Then I’ll keep plugging away at this The Social Studio business plan for Sydney. xo

Show: When a gal like me comes back to Melbourne for some family, and The Social Studio, a bit of fashion *sparkle and fun* is in order:

Tell: Glasses from op shop, Tatty Devine necklace, Barry Joseph dress from op shop, leather gloves from Florence, Jonathan Aston tights, Fluevog boots. Vintage Tuahia 1980s leather jacket.

Share: Yes, what you are looking at are long, fingerless, black leather gloves. I kid you not, I’ve been looking for gloves like these for YEARS, and I ended up having to go all the way to Florence, Italy for them. So naturally, they are now *precious* items, which I hope to be wearing well into my eighties…

And because I packed pretty poorly – especially for the Arctic-like Melbourne wind – I got to raid my Step-Mother’s wardrobe for extra warmth. How *lucky* am I that I could borrow this original 1980s leather jacket? I feel like I’m coming off the set of Dynasty… wonderful!

I also popped by The Social Studio to say hello and have lunch with lovely Grace (the CEO). I adore being able to hang out, even if briefly, just to soak up the vibe and general *goodness* of this place. Naturally, I also made sure I did my *ethical duty* and purchased a few choice pieces too!

Tell: Necklace a gift from Bec, Barry Joseph dress from op shop, two pairs of stockings, and Fluevogs.

Share: This week and last has really been about research and reports for The Social Studio Sydney. I know it doesn’t necessarily make for the most *exciting* reading, but it’s the truth. These are the times when you need to bunker down and actually check out the social business and model you’re developing is going to be efficient, and make a difference.

As a small recompense for (potential) work ‘dryness’, I’m pleased to say I’ve re-discovered the *joys* of double-stockings in this cooler weather: one coloured pair and one patterned pair over the top. Expect more to come! (I’m just warming you up with two of the same colours today…)
