Because it's Melbourne and the weather is unpredictable and changeable. Today it was just plain cold and rainy. And I like my scruffy old boots (or - more truthfully perhaps - I don't like shopping for new shoes).
I'm loving my new Fibre Red knitted skirt. Super-duper comfy, stylish, textural and the most gorgeous shade of claret (which didn't photograph very well with my dodgey happy-snap camera).
Fibre Red's amazingly creative designer Kim is taking part in fashion week in a really striking and unusual way. If you're in the city (in Melbourne... sorry to international or out-of-town readers!) it's worth taking a wander down to Little Collins St on your lunch break this week.
Incorporating performance art, live music and knitting (!) this unique and original event will unravel in Little Collins St (between Swanston & Elizabeth St). Wednesday 2nd, Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th from 12.30pm til 2pm.
Well it's got ME intrigued....!
