Day 117/365

Ken Done glasses, Saba skivvy (sample sale), with Miss Sixty silk jacket , Saba skirt and Bally shoes - all bought at op shops.

Yesterday in Melbourne it was 30 degrees, sunny and warm. Today it is 15 degrees, with rain and grey skies. Sounds like the Melbourne weather we all know and love! But I will not have my spirits dampened - especially after yesterday seeing The Social Studio and meeting all the *great* people who work there.

Today I'm in the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in Langwarrin. Having seen the rather operatic collar on my Miss Sixty silk jacket, another op-shop find, my Mom suggested taking my photo next to a statue of the late, great Dame Joan Sutherland within the Gallery grounds. As you can see, I was only too happy to oblige. Go the Dame! I only hope that I can get my hair that *big* one day.

And here we have Zindzi modelling the Ken Done scarf featured today. Lovely Bec has donated this scarf to What Ken Be Done, and as a dog-lover, I'm sure she'll be happy with the show here. Thanks Bec for all your *good* support!
By the way, my 'live-in photographer' for the WKBD project commented that Zindzi was the easiest subject for the project so far as she obeys commands. I'm not convinced of the joke...

As a Poodle with an African name, in fact Mandela's youngest daughter's name, (and it means "COURAGE") I have to say it is not that I'm more obedient, simply that for the first time in my life I get to wear something exclusive with chic, colour and vibrance! Now that is COURAGE!!!!

glad to see you enjoying Melbourne so much. I'm sure Melbourne is all the brighter for your stay. I actually travelled down Geelong way this weekend, half a dozen OpShops and not a KD in sight, sadly.

An *actual* comment from The Michael of Melbourne...
Excitement, but the lack of Ken Done goodies in regional Victoria (damn it!)...
Sexual innuendo with a concrete statue...

Melbourne and fashion = you have it all! :-)
