Another phone snap taken by Edit Evening this morning after breakfast at the new paleo eatery in Richmond, Patch Cafe. Edit Evening and I have both been following the paleo diet so far this year, although he’s stricter than I am – I still have some dairy and occasionally submit to my sugar cravings.
The light was so beautiful filtering in through the trees! Not a very good picture for outfit details unfortunately, but I was happy to saunter around in my lovely new derbies that I got for a steal, BNIB on eBay recently.
I am pleased to announce that – in conjunction with fine Melbourne-based jewellers Julia DeVille and Redivivo – my work will be presented May 5th-15th at Fallow in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, as part of the VIRTUALLY YOURS exhibition.

Edit Evening snapped some pictures of this outfit for me on my phone whilst walking to lunch on Saturday. We’re trying to do this more often since I’m hardly ever home, figuring phone photos are better than no photos.
It was dry but windy out, the perfect weather for a padded jacket but bare legs under my dress. This dress and my Assin dress pictured a few posts back are on constant rotation in my wardrobe at the moment – my only complaint with this one is that as it is linen it creases easily and then I feel unkempt. Since acquiring a garment steamer ($49 from K-Mart – if you don’t have one seriously run, don’t walk) I can’t imagine a life wearing creased or wrinkled garments. It’s one of the best investments I’ve made for my wardrobe and at such a minor cost.

This blazer is absolutely my pride and joy. It was an extraordinary generous Christmas gift from my love Edit Evening, and now that the weather is cooling in Melbourne I’ve been wearing it constantly.
The cut is extremely flattering on my frame, which is always hard for me as I have a prominent sway back – but this cinches in beautifully. I love the subtle texture in the fabric and the gorgeous silk shawl collar. It’s also the perfect length for pants or dresses. The only thing I’d change is maybe the size, as I do prefer my jackets tight I think I could have gotten away with the size smaller; but at least this way there’s plenty of room for knits and things to be worn underneath as it’s more of a summer-weight blazer and I intend to wear it right through winter, too.
The voluminous full-length skirt gives the overall look a bit of a modern-victorian feel that, while a little different for me, also somehow feels perfectly natural.
