antediluvian elegance .

I recently received Scott Schuman’s book The Sartorialist (yes I know I’m a little delayed) as a gift from my fellow blogger J . This book quickly became my bible . Scott established The Sartorialist to create a two-way dialogue about the world of fashion and its relationship to daily life .¬†I love his perception and analysis of one’s outfit – his ability to identify intricate style details is¬†phenomenal, just like that of Bill Cunningham . It is human nature to make assumptions however this book educates one to perceive others in a different light . perhaps there are contributing cultural or sentimental factors to ones outfit – those of which you wouldn’t know unless you asked .

take this photo for example . Talia frequents the races so one would assume this is just another hat she owns upon the thousands in her collection . This hat was given to her by her nan which at the time resembled a a disc of straw and a bow . with a bit of nurturing she was able to restore the vintage piece to its original condition . though it is a beautiful piece, what stands out the most are her eyes . If you stare a little longer you would almost mistaken them as vintage instead, the story behind them is rather captivating, but a mystery to most .

I love this outfit . My favourite are the prada shoes . I first spotted them in Vogue during Rosemount Autralian Fashion Week 2011 . After purchasing my Chanel only a few days before I was walking around Venice with my sister and told her to not let me buy anything else as I had already spent a substantial amount on the jumbo . Then we stumbled in to prada and there they were . The last pair left anywhere . So I bought the black and convinced my sister to buy the tan . Winning!
