Have you ever had that feeling that you just know something great is just around the corner? That something so fabulous is due to happen that you're keeping your eyes peeled for when it'll drop in front of you? Yeah, me neither ... but something very close happened when I wandered into a vintage store in the Blue Mountains a few weeks ago. Totally absorbed in my usual search for vintage copper pieces, I wasn't on the look out for clothing at all till I saw it. The perfect shade of camel, I hurried over, my hands reached out eagerly to find the softest and most beautiful fabric I'd seen in a long time. Elation ran through me, I pulled the hanger out carefully and there she was - an Escada cashmere blazer. I publicly stripped all my winter layers like lightning in my haste to get it on and to my delight she slid on like she was made for me.
So here she is, paired with my very favourite Maticevski pants and a simple white tee. Who knew that on the right day, lighting can strike in such a beautiful way?
