So, I found some grey ribbed tights from Myer on reader Lauren’s recommendation – they’re pretty good, though I’m going to keep looking for a pair that are slightly lighter as well.
It’s a long weekend in Australia this weekend, but due to the miserable weather and the fact that I’m a bit skint until next paycheck I’m being very domestic and have so far spent the weekend baking at home.
The Sophisticate’s best friend is abandoning us for the warmer climes of Sydney, so to see him off (and better encourage him to come back to us!) I hosted a home-cooked meal last night with a delicious herby tomato quiche and apple crumble for dessert. Today’s been pancakes, then scones with home-made jam. Om nom nom nom.
I’m not sure how much detail you can make out on my brooch, but I quite love it. I picked it up earlier this week at one of my bookstores: Brunswick Bound which, in addition to having a great range of carefully hand-picked books, has some of the best accessories I’ve seen.
It’s by, er, someone. I’ve lost the card it was on originally on, but maybe Sarah McNeil? There were a few of her brooches in the same cabinet…
ETA: Eagle-eyed reader Madeline let me know that the brooch was made by Julia Swaney – Have a look at her store, the brooches are too gorgeous for words! Thanks, Madeline!
