ShowTellShare Two Hundred and Forty-Three

Pin It

So much to Show, Tell and Share! Almost three months of The Social Outfit being open… and truth be told, I’ve been kept very, very busy with all the learning and new experiences of setting up our social enterprise. One thing is for sure: we’re all doing our best! You can read more about our start-up, set-up, and fit out here:

This post below is where I’ll catch up on a couple of outfits and a bit of news… Nothing too fancy, but you can see some of what I’ve been doing, and wearing, as we work *super hard* to build our community site and retail store here in Newtown, Sydney…

First up, an image of me and Oboya, working in the store… We’ve had some lovely early media heralding our doors being open to the public.


Sydney winter really is never too cold, so I loved wearing this faux fur neckwear in our cooler months…


And, as always, a bit ‘o Tatty Devine in my wardrobe: in this case, the oversize plastic blue jewel necklace…


Oboya and I have been working together since the opening of our store in late June. You might remember Oboya all the way back in our first fashion show in 2012 (also when we first met). I don’t always show everyone we work together with here at ShowTellShare, because first and foremost we’re a community space, but Oboya was happy for me to show his *ACE x a million styling*. This young man really does know how to dress, and here is but one example!


Hat Style = Check. Keeping the tag on = Check.


Also, here’s Jo, our sewing teacher at The Social Outfit. As life would have it, Jo made not one, but TWO dresses back for me in the ‘What Ken Be Done‘ days… so imagine my delight that here we are, working together for creativity, social inclusion and *good* fashion!


And now, some random information on some of my shop outfits…

Like, wearing vintage 1980s Jenny Kee (the dress), and community my Cambodian silk-bead-necklace from Tabitha House and Nurturing Threads, sold at our store


I love the metallic matching of my vintage dress from an op shop with this Tatty Devine mirror-jewel-necklace, and The Social Studio leggings …


Greens, reds and oranges… and Linda Jackson!



Vintage Sussan cardigan from op shop… 1980s *gold*!



And finally, an ensemble of ‘The Social Outfit loves Ken Done‘, with a wool vintage dress/jacket from an op shop…



And speaking of Ken Done…
