Redemption

When I was 16 or 17, like most teenage girls, I did a modelling course.

 


I remember staring soulfully into the camera, my gel-wet, tousled hair hanging long over my shoulders for my head shot; learning to walk as though on two train tracks down the runway, instead of tightrope like — one foot in front of the other — as I imagined. And then appearing in a Melbourne Cup fashion parade.

 


It was for Cue and I’ll never forget the orange go-go style dress with a giant zip up the front that they chose for me.

 


It was… well I thought it was the most awful thing they could have picked. Is tangerine really the best choice for a red head? I wasn’t convinced.

 


Anyway, that was my last brush with being a clothes horse, until Tobi shot me an email. ‘Would I be interested in wearing some of their clothes on my blog? I could choose anything I liked.’ Why, yes. Yes I would be interested, Tobi. Thanks.

 

This is all much more me. A heavy, plaid jacket; white poplin button up; and perhaps, in some subconscious tie to the go-go dress, I chose this badass high neck shift.

 


And then I got to stare soulfully at The Man as he snapped shots in front of our garage door. Oh yeah, we location scouted and everything. (Other contenders included the shed out the back and an exposed brick wall under the house.)

P.S Tobi has free shipping (at no minimum) on all orders to Australia. Free shipping is my favourite price for shipping!

This here was the first sweater of the season.

 

 

To be fair, it was probably a touch too early. But I was just so dang excited. A sweater! After the actual hottest summer in Brisbane’s history. What a novelty!

 

 

My hopes for the coldest winter to compensate for all that summer haven’t exactly been realised as yet. But I guess it’s technically still only Autumn. Even if my lack of layers would have you believe otherwise. I tell you what though, if I don’t get to wear excessive woollies soon I’m going to be so cross!
