I love the kimono-esque styling on this velvet jacket - made me think it would be perfect for a 20s style outfit. One of the things I love most about fashions from that era is how they were really drawing on other cultures for inspiration in jewellery and clothing. This was really apparent in the Tutankhamen exhibition, where I quite often found myself marveling at how similar the jewellery found in the tomb was to art deco designs!
As for the exhibition itself, loved the amount and variety of artifacts on display as well as the explanations of their religious and cultural significance, but was disappointed at the lack of probing into some of the controversies regarding Tutankhamen such as his mysterious death at 19 (and the assorted broken bones in his autopsy) as well as the suspicious circumstances around the discovery of the tomb by Carter. Despite those minor quibbles, I found it excellent and would urge anybody in Melbourne to see it before it closes!
Am also fond of my new pair of glasses - the circular shape is perfect for when I am wearing clothes that predate the cat eye style (as much as I love it, the anachronistic clash is too strong!)
While parking the car we stumbled across this chair by the train tracks! Somebody clearly decided their front garden wasn't big enough and expanded into the bushes across the road - I love how it is even bordered with bricks!
Tomorrow I start a new job and am super nervous - any kind words would be really appreciated! Tea is helping but not enough :/
PS Don't forget about my Revlon Fire and Ice giveaway! I just realized I didn't nominate a closing date - it is now updated to close on the 14th of November!
