Day 59-100 days of design project

Red wool 1970's jacket with yet another highly patterned top from the late 1960's early 1970's. Happy naive times.

Day 58-100 days of design

Full length glitter and 100% polyester.What else is there to say! A wild little number best worn with white boots. Much too big at size 20 BUT I have resisted taking it in as I don't want to mess with the integrity of the design. Doesn't look as saggy in real life. Photo by Ella aged 12.

Day 57-100 days project

When I first saw this jacket, I thought the zips were all too much and it wasn't till the next day I went back and got it...but now I love this 1960's raincoat. Five dollars...a bargain!

Day 56-100 days project

Great little wool jacket. I wonder if it was ever part of a suit? I love the fit and attention to detail in retro clothing.

Day 54-100 days of design project

Flash back to bay city rollers. I don't wear this jacket much. I always feel like I am wearing an old tartan dressing gown...yet it has nice detailing and black duffle buttons.

Day 50-100 days project

A skirt from the hospice for 50 cents with old buttons sewn around the hem and necklace made from hospice buttons. The jacket is also from the hospice. Lovely soft leather.

Day 49- 100 days project

Nice Day to acknowledge John and Jane Adams. My Dad died 12 years ago today and the locket is of my Great great great Grandad John Adams on his 25 wedding Anniverary 25 December 1903 ish. They are buried in Lane Cove, Sydney. Jane is on the reverse side.

Day 44- 100 days project

Whoops! Posted out of order! This top is a wacky little optical illusion and very synthetic. Photo by Ella aged 12

Day45-100 days project

Another jacket! This has a silver thread going through it that didn't photograph well. The bag is wacky. My guess is that the bag is handmade. It has elaborate detail and macrame work.

Day 43-100 days of design

I have a vague feeling these jackets were called Safari jackets? This one has a great belt with a plastic buckle (not shown here). It has well thought out details that don't muck with the crisp clear design.

Day 41- 100 days of design project

Got to love orange and brown! The top is actually really a sparkly gold colour...but that didn't come out very well in the photo.
