Happy Holidays! Or, if you grew up airing grievances under an aluminum pole, Happy Festivus! A donation has been made in your name to The Human Fund: Money for People. I hope that your holiday season is enjoyable or at least tolerable. Against all weather warnings and past lessons learnt I continue to wear closed leather shoes and wool jackets in the Australian Summer. To be honest I would probably wear the same outfit in Winter with a long sleeve top and stockings. Pairing my Harnden jacket with a cotton Rick Owens pillar skirt to maintain a clean look. As always I prefer to allow my outerwear to speak for itself on top of a streamline dress or skirt.

Keep safe this holiday season, buy those long yearned after items on sale, and I hope to see you and get back into the swing of things in the New Year!

Mia, wishing you all the best for the holiday season and the New Year. Your outfit as always is interesting, artfully put together and gorgeous. I do not know how you manage to wear this for our summer, I'm running around in sleeveless black dresses with bare legs. I have enjoyed your blog this year and discovered new and different designers through you (I'm lusting after a A Brand Apart bag thanks to you:). Take care:)

You look lovely in this ensemble and those creepers are perfect.
Long yearned after items on sale…. oh yes. I've been shopping. ;)
Happy New Year, Mia! x

I hope your xmas was wonderful. Can't wait to see your new outfits in the new year, all the best xx

Thank you very much, Deborah, I wish the same to you! I stubbornly refuse to completely bow down to weather appropriate clothing and just hope I'll be going somewhere with excellent air conditioning! It's a sickness that fares better in Winter.

I'm glad to have been able to introduce you to new designers, it's been a pleasure reading your blog and seeing your style develop this year :) I look forward to seeing your posts in the New Year! Happy Holidays! :)

Mia said...

Thank you! I'm always afraid to wear them as the crepe soles have worn down considerably.

Haha excellent! Looking forward to seeing your loot :) Happy New Year!!

Mia said...

Thank you very much, I hope you've also had a wonderful Christmas and have an even better NYE! Looking forward to the New Year :)

You're looking gorgeous as always. I've been admiring Paul Harnden's works for some time now and I'm glad I can view his works vicariously through you.

Have a fantastic New Year celebration (if you're having any, that is) and all the best for the coming year.

Mia said...

Thank you, Gracia! I've also been admiring for a while afar until I got lucky and bought this jacket. Happy to help a sister out!
