The Wedding Skirt Does Winter

 When I purchased this Sarah Puccini skirt for my son's wedding in February last year I envisioned many ways to style the skirt so it would not be just sitting in my closet waiting for a formal occasion,a scarce occurrence in my world.This is the skirt's first Winter outing and I must admit to being rather pleased with how everything came together.

 The skirt was paired with a black fine wool jumper , long black leather gloves, black boots by Paco Herero several Winters old , I am so pleased this toe shape is back again and just proves you should never get rid of things as fashion is so fickle . My black hat has also been with me for many a Winter and was purchased at a sadly, long gone local hat shop.I topped the outfit with a black wool , furry edged shawl. The shawl was originally a much longer wrap,that I recently has shortened, as I never wore it in its original form it was way too long and heavy . I now have the shawl and a scarf , so much more practical to wear.


Apologies for being missing in action for the last two weeks. My first week was planned as I was attending to a long overdue matter that needed my full physical and emotional strength, the second not at all , these photos were taken last week but when the time came for my post I sat at my computer at the ready but could not enter text and what is a blog without text. So after a frustrating week that very much challenged my lack of tech expertise a trip to Hobart fortunately arose and with the help of my son the blog now uses a different browser and the problem was solved, still no idea why this happened , the joy of computers and me.
