Jeans: Embody Denim
Cravat: Christian Dior (Thrifted)
So I was back to work this week (alas!). I’m already feeling a bit like I need a break, so it’s fortunate that on tuesday we celebrate “Australia Day” with a public holiday.
Today was a bit of a case of calm before the storm because come tomorrow I’ll have my ‘rents visiting from Canberra (possibly with my younger brother) and also my honorary little sister who – due to the lack of beds here – is crashing with The Sophisticate.
I bought this great gentlemanly cravat at the Chapel St Bazaar, oh, months ago; but like so many of my scarves – bought on a whim with the best of intentions – it has spent its time sitting in the bottom of my drawers being unloved and unworn.
I suspect that I don’t have the neck for scarves, but it’s such an easy way to jazz up a boring outfit and breathe new life into old clothes that I keep trying. One day I might stumble across the perfect way to tie a scarf, giving the illusion of the long and willowy neck that I so crave. I’ll be sure to share if I ever do!
