Surfin A-U-S






vintage jacket from a Sydney market
tshirt from Sydney (old)
American Apparel skirt
old swimsuit
Sekonda watch
mother's gold earrings from India

Messing around on the beach at beautiful Bondi, probably the most famous surfing beach in Australia, before having my first ever surfing lesson. I couldn't come to Australia and not surf now, could I? By the way, surfing is incredible - I think I've found my new sport!

Can you believe I got this real suede jacket at an antiques market for 15 Australian dollars (about £10)?! When I asked how much it was, the guy asked how much I wanted to pay for it... after a few seconds of "er....", he suggested $15 dollars and I paid before he could change his mind/come to his senses and scampered off! I don't know how long I've been looking for the perfect fringed jacket, preferably tan, preferably suede, etc etc, but being picky, I had never found one until out of the blue, this one turns up, on a CD stall, no less! :)

PS. Yes this was Australia, but it was cool enough at around midday to wear this jacket on the beach and not boil to death (it's "spring" there).
