The perils of a white coat...
pics, Rebecca Laurey - edit, me
This white coat wasn't an obvious choice for me, quite ladylike and elegant - a bit of a 50's feel. I loved it when I tried it on instore - why not mix things up a little? I really am trying to dress a little finer, its my instinct to wear sneakers, baggy jeans and a tee everyday - but I love fashion and style as expression so the key is to be a little less lazy about it. Wearing white is a risk for me also... I bought some white jeans recently and have had to wash them after every single use - coffee seems to just migrate to them. White is so crisp and beautiful though - and my friends Nicole and Jess both do it soooo well! In fact, when I bought this jacket I msged Jess to tell her how she had inspired me to wear it and little did I know - she had bought the same coat a week or so before. Great minds!
Snapped these pics after a stellar day spent with Rebecca at some vintage markets in Amsterdam North... I would add here that I'm missing the sunshine we enjoyed that day but today in Sydney, despite the winter, it's so gloriously sunny and fairly warm. Still... looks like I'll be flying back to the Northern hemisphere sooner than I anticipated... More news to come soon!
