WEDNESDAY

I'm quite hopeless, I know. I went for a bit of Christmas shopping the other day and ended up doing some thrifting finds for myself instead. I came home with this woolen pencil skirt (my explanation to self: nice and warm for this time of year) and leather bag (explanation to self: had to get since it was in such mint condition).


Skirt & Bag - thrifted (well obviously, just mentioned it there above...)
Cardigan - Lucky13; a gift from mom some Christmases ago
Shoes - the same old 67 You's as always


Btw, the only good this about climate change is, ummm, well, there is none, but if there ever were (you want to look at the bright side of life right?) it'd be be the fact that it is dry enough here in December for me to still wear shoes like this!

(Even though just as I was walking outside, thinking of this, it started to snow. Just a little bit, in a nice way. My feet and shoes survived : )

oh darling you are so gorgeus once again! Here in Tampere we have some snow and ice and other crappy stuff on the ground (at least here in the middle of nowhere that I live in) so I am not really able to walk around in cute shoes like that! But I have planned to fool the climate and wear some Parikkas tomorrow...

You look so amazingly good here! I wish I looked as consistantly good as you do my dear, it would make things easier.

Of course, I'm certain you put a lot of effort into your ensembles, but you make it look effortless and that is the important thing.

fantastic finds! You look perfect in that skirt!

I was able to wear my cute heels until just yesterday...we got tons of snow and it's not going away. I can't complain though, I have enough boots. ;o)

You really did have to get that skirt and that bag. They're amazing.

Parapluie said...

I;ve got very similar skirt, also thrifted. I love your shoes and still looking for my "perfect red" ones.

Mallis said...

Det var ju du som gav mig inspirationen! :D

Jag gillade din fina lite konvexa lugg. Så det får det bli nu. Måste klippas snart iaf.

A red lipstick said...

Wow, I love that skirt!

The Clothes Horse said...

That is a great skirt. You can't resist a find like that.
P.S. I'm mostly happy to be home...only home is boring and Athens is always exciting.

Lady Melbourne said...

I did exactly the same thing today!! I almost left empty handed but I was determined to get some presents, it's not all about my own thrift finds!

Miss Argentina : yes, I do, but it's a bit worn out. I got it from my mother so I'm not sure I'd like to sell it, but I don't wear it that much anymore so I might consider it...hmmm, let me get back to this one.

MissArgentina1993 said...

Sorry I haven't been on in so long! I've been with my sister in Argentina, but I'm back in the states now. I know its been a little more time, please let me know when you decide, my e-mail is Missargentina1993@gmail.com, thanks <3
