Day 67/365

This vintage Australian shirt-jacket goes by the label 'Promenade.'

When I looked up the definition of promenade it includes, 'a walk - especially in public - as for pleasure or display.' How fitting! You know how much pleasure comes from displaying these 1980s Australiana designs, and in noting the multitude of brands Ken Done has inspired in Australia's fashion history (it's Inspiration-Friday today of course).

And now I'm off to promenade through the inner western suburbs of Sydney to catch up with friends, many of whom keep inspiring me to test just What Ken Be Done...

Crack up Anon on the blue legs joke - the shot does help my legs look a little ghoulish doesn't it?!

Birdmonkey - hey super thanks for the feedback. Number #1 - that's high praise for a high waisted green shorts ensemble!
