ShowTellShare Two Hundred and Seven

Show/Share: Today I met with Mr Bruce Baird, AM. Bruce Baird is the current Chair of The Refugee Resettlement Advisory Council, and I had the opportunity to talk with him about The Social Outfit, The Social Studio and our plans for Sydney. He was very interested in our work, and had some great suggestions for me. It’s heartening to see the support of people across government and industry in this kind of work, and I really appreciate it when people take time out of their busy schedules to share their insights. Hopefully this helps us with long-term connections and relationship-building, as well as more chances of ongoing success here in NSW.

And as always, I was wearing some of The Social Studio‘s clothing; plus showing a *teeny* bit of colour and fun…


Tell: Tatty Devine earrings and necklace, wool skivvy from op shop, Yoshi Jones cotton shirt, The Social Studio silk dress, retail tights and socks, Trippen shoes from Berlin outlet.

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

Share: I headed back to Parramatta this morning for a meeting with Indu from ICE. And last Friday I met with Suji from Multicultural Enterprises Australia (Fairfield Migrant Resource Centre), Jasmina and Felix from STARTTS, and Jo and Jodie from Parramatta City Council. It’s refreshing to begin discussing with people aspects of developing The Social Studio in Sydney. People have been very welcoming; asking questions and offering advice and support. Early days I realise. Our first key step is securing the required financial support to start us off, so it’s writing grant applications and more strategising for me this afternoon…

In fashion matters, I asked The Social Studio to make me these leggings over a year ago now. I loved the hand-dyed fabric so much, and couldn’t decide between the green and purple tones – so went with both! Not everybody’s style for sure: but clearly mine.
