beneath the blue suburban skies

Coat & boots (vintage), Bag (custom made), Sunglasses (eBay)

Let’s ignore how short I appear to be (*ahem* am) and focus in on the two delicious new additions to my wardrobe. I have been eyeing off the Grey Ant sunglasses for a long time so when I saw a post that Ashley Ring My Bell did where she found these lookalikes on eBay, I was quick to snatch up a pair for myself.

Secondly, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I have longing for the perfect (faux)fur-collared suede coat. Probably ever since I (first)watched Almost Famous and saw the infamous Penny Lane. So while the tree-lined streets of South Yarra are probably not the contextual background setting to do this 1970’s vintage coat justice, I might swan around the apartment later with some Tiny Dancer blaring and a pair of blue-tinted Lennon glasses adorned to my face. I visited the Hello Sailor Vintage Fair for the first time this weekend and was amazed to find this beauty there, priced at a measly $40. It truly is all happening.

    i have a coat that is remarkably similar to this! (long, orange, with a big blond fur collar) unfortunately mine is scratchy polyester.. not AWESOME suede.
    great find! enjoy it!

  2. What an amazing find – the rust colour is so perfect on you!

  3. those glasses are fantastic. where did you get them from? i think i like them better than my beloved ray bans..


  4. That coat is amazing on you! I have a similar one in store at the moment but it’s wool rather than suede.
    Loving the sunnies & those boots too!
