Finders Keepers Sin City dress | H&M fedora | Riddlee Boot care of Windsor Smith
When at a loss for what to wear on what might possibly be the last day the sun can muster a feeling of warmth before the inevitable abyss of winter and full body covering up, I turn to black and white. Not a new concept by a mile, but I think I will always feel more comfortable in the basic neutrals than I ever will wearing prints and colours. Sure, the completely blasé way in which bold colours will claim the attention of passer-byes is intoxicating, and is an expert lesson on clothing manifesting itself as confidence. Yet, I fully commend a dress in one of the most basic colours in it's artful way of finding attention while eliciting a more demure self assurance through artful origami folds and pinafore like cutouts.
Attention as an after thought, as a backwards glance.
These boots are also some of the most comfortable of their height and structure to pass by my extensive shoe collection in a long time. Windsor Smith is an institution for most: always on trend and always coveted by a vast range of ages - both guys and girls. While in their new Rundle Mall store I was surprised to see an energetic 60+ man as excited to see the new store as the two teen girls gravitating towards the Lily and Chunks were. The foam like base is super light weight and belies their 9cm height, making them surprisingly easy for day time outings - not that W will like this idea, making me approximately 12cm taller than him, poor kid. But to that I say a big whole hearted #YOLO.
