Bittersweet Symphony

Felt Hat: Vintage stall; Vest: Neon Hart; Top: Ladakh; Shorts: One teaspoon
Thank you all so, so much for your kind words and support, it does mean a lot! I'm so grateful that my house wasn't affected directly by the floods, however we did lose power and the internet for a while. It's so crazy, the sun is shining and the sky is actually blue today but a few minutes away the surrounding suburbs have been evacuated and are now underwater, it's a bittersweet day. My boss called and told me my work place is underwater, so no working for a few days. There is so much community support going on here with strangers helping other strangers as if they have known them their whole lives, it really makes the heart swell. Later today my mum and i are going to put together some hampers full of clothing, pillows, caned food and other little bits and pieces and drop it off at an evacuation centre near by, it's the best we can do but i'm sure it will be appreciated.

I took advantage of the nice weather and finally got around to doing an outfit post. The hat is the one i found at a vintage clothing stall at sunset sounds! I think i'm slowly becoming a hat person, i've never really worn them in the past but now when i go out all i'm looking for is the perfect hat, this could be bad for my bank account!  Feelin' a bit like my idol Jimi Hendrix in my fringed vest, hmm if only i could play an electric guitar! Enjoy!

  7. Love the hat, definitely a great find! The fringe vest and clogs definitely compliment the basic top and shorts. It's interesting how people come together during tragedy. The same happened here when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana and during September 11, 2001.
