Tartan and a Dream Hat Revisited


Officially this is the last Winter post , Spring is literally just round the corner on Friday in fact , so it really was time to revisit my all time favourite Winter hat. I had been biding my time searching for the perfect coat or jacket to accompany this beauty but this was not the year for this to happen. I know it will , as it often does when you least expect it and from an unlikely source.



 Time to draw on old favourites , this little tartan jacket has made several appearances previously and my long black leather skirt - both sourced from a local recycled clothing store.Elbow length black leather gloves that I discovered at a charity shop in Adelaide at Easter make the perfect finishing touch.

Red suede ankle boots by Ara , another old favourite, complete today's outfit.

 I just had to include a close-up of the details on my hat , love the braiding detail . The hat is made by
a Tasmanian milliner , Susan McArthur . I am a great admirer of her millinery and am now the proud owner of three of her glorious creations.
