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!
