I like the juxtaposition of the somewhat cool-toned steel case and bracelet with the warm-toned, dark cream with gold accent of the dial, I feel that it makes it very easy to match with almost anything.

    It runs beautifully, too. I haven't timed it to the second, but it doesn't loose or gain anything that can be measured in minutes.
    So pretty, and if you ever want to have the dial restored (I happen to like the patina of age), there are a number of quite good restorers out there. (I have a nice little Elgin wristwatch - one of the WWII era pieces from the 1940's that used parts from earlier due to wartime supply issues. It is in the shop being repaired right now, the escapement mechanism may be the culprit. It's not an expensive one but it's a beauty. I do appreciate the craftsmanship that was present even in "cheap" watches from the early-mid 20th century.

    Thank you! I have been considering it, but I think I'll leave it - the patina is nice, and I don't want it to look brand new anyway; I would have chosen a different watch if I did. I'm very fond of these plain, comparatively inexpensive early- to mid-century watches too, the design is often fantastic and they are great mechanical watches, as well.

    I would love to see photos of the Elgin, by the way!

    Sorry about the rubbish photo, but with the thought of autumn just around the corner, today I bought the wool blazer in the picture below. Its actually a bit lighter grey than depicted here with a black trim around lapels etc.

    Nice one, I like the 50's/60's feel of the narrow lapels with black binding!

    I bought fabrics and buttons yesterday. One of my favourite fabric shops is going out of business, sadly, and I picked up three cottons for summer dresses - a plain, slightly dirty sky blue, a narrow black and drab stripe, and an off-white with herringbone structure. May have to go back and get more, everything is on sale and they have lovely shirtings.

    I will probably make shirtwaist dresses out of all three fabrics, in late 40's cuts with narrow waists, wide, calf-length skirts and marked shoulders.

    I recently had two simple silk shift dresses made from two large (v large ) scarves . One is red and the other black - both with feather motifs on them. Simply lovely.
    Today I bought another two dresses -
    One is a maxi dress in tiger print and the other is another simple shift in black silk with small skull designs everywhere. Got them with a 15% discount too!

    Thank you! They arrived a couple days ago and l really like the way they look. I've been wanting cat-eye sunglasses to come back in style for a few years now so they would be available to buy in stores.

    I see you not only have nice taste in choosing your SOTD fragrances Roberto which I happen to notice each day, but also very stylish taste in your choice of clothes! Congrats on acquiring this!
