Where Are You, Navy Blue? (Part V)
It's been two whole years since my last spate of "Where Are You, Navy Blue?" posts so here's a bumper installment! My love for the colour remains the same but some things sure have changed in the last twenty-four months. Navy blue wearables are no longer only found in the men's, nannas' or kiddies' departments! These new-ish additions are made specifically for grown-up girls. Wooooo!
The swingy raincoat is by Handsom. My second piece of outerwear from this Australian label that I've professed my deep love for before here. I'm looking forward to filling my wardrobe with more of their I-know-I'll-wear-forever things.
The bag is a reissue of the 1974 Coach Classic Shoulder Purse. You don't know how much time I've spent on Ebay searching for (and watching!) one of the originals! I would have happily bought the reissues if they were available in Australia but we only get the really ugly, heavily-monogrammed and unnecessary hardware-laden styles here. I have my good pal and new "personal shopper" Meeps to thank for carrying this quiet and understated little beauty back from New York for me. She bought herself one in lime (I would eventually get one too because green is another favourite colour!) so we are now handbag-twins! Tee hee hee.
I haven't added to my Melissa shoe collection in a long long time and I've sold quite a few pairs during my recent wardrobe cull (still an ongoing process with a few more pairs to list on Ebay) so these super-matte navy blue Humans were a treat. So cute with navy stripey socks! Or without!
It's a little old-fashioned but it's nice sometimes to wear matching bag and shoes, don't you think? And a coat too. Haha. Go, go, Power Rangers!
