Daily Outfit: A Song of Ice and Fur

I have been thinking a lot about my wardrobe in the six-months I’ve been absent from Blogging, and I have begun to take the steps towards weeding out the elements that don’t flatter me and that I just don’t like; building towards a new and improved collection of pieces that I love.

This fur Scarf is one of my more recent acquisitions.

You absolutely cannot tell from the image, but it is actually composed of strips of rabbit fur that have been knitted together into an elastic loop. It is pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. The colour isn’t exactly what I pictured, but I actually love it and was pleasantly surprised. It certainly embodies the sort of aesthetic I aspire towards.

Today’s outfit:
charcoal pinstriped wool Blazer – St. James, thrifted
charcoal rabbit fur Scarf – Arielle, from Parliment Clothing
white long-sleeved Top – Country Road
black leather Belt – JAG
Motor 3D taper Jeans in light wash – G-Star Raw
black leather Chelsea Boots – Country Road
Parfum: Naughty Alice – Vivienne Westwood

Winter is galloping towards us here in the ACT. I need to purchase a few winter-friendly pieces ASAP.


Daily Outfit: First Frost

This morning it was -4 degrees when I woke up, prompting me to stay rugged up in bed for as long as humanly possible. It was also Canberra’s first frost for the year of 2012. I love winter, and the cold, but there is always something about that first frost that really shocks the system.

Naturally, to combat the cold, I decided to wear a thin silk T-shirt to work :S

Today’s outfit:
grey herringbone and plaid Blazer – Eagle Clothes, thrifted
light grey ‘Narcissus’ print silk T-shirt – Alpha60
chocolate brown leather Belt – Country Road
‘Riley’ tapered Arc-cut Jeans – G-Star Raw
chocolate brown leather Shoes – Raphael Steffens from Carmen Steffens Boutique
Parfum: Anglomania – Vivienne Westwood


Blogging: Ink & Leathers – A return to form

Dear Ink & Leathers,
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.
How is your heart feeling after this six month absence?
Have you missed me like I’ve missed you?
Have you yearned for me in the same way that I have yearned for you?
I think we should get back together.
Give it another run for its money?
All my love,
Grant Heino
