I'm basically an amphibian because I'm that coldblooded. So when it got a little chilly this week, I dug out some winter woollies. A few days ago, I was wearing shorts and sticking to the car seats and now this. I like the outfit because I'm a sucker for brown boots but hopefully we won't see it again until November.
Gotta go... the Spelling Bee is on. That is good television...
She got it when she was about 20 years old and she kept passing this purse in a store display. She coveted it but it was out of her budget ( a good chunk of her weekly salary). However, she kept thinking about it and finally she saved enough to buy it. It was passed on to me by my Oma a few years back and I used to use it but now I get nervous, so it's mostly just on display. We live in an age of consumerism and one day I'll have scads of purses and shiny things to give my grand daughter but because my Oma cherished this one clutch so much, it means a lot more to me.
Yeah to favourite things and brown paper packages tied up in string...
Dress? Lida Baday, thrifted
Gold flats? Zara, old
Eelskin clutch? thifted
Anchor earrings? forget the designer's name but it's from Essentia, the little store that couldn't... it's gone now.
Let me count the ways I love you new dress!
1. It's a maxi dress that's actually long enough for me(I'm good Dutch stock at 5'11). Most maxi dresses are just a touch longer than a midi on me, kinda ruins the effect...
2. It's not too trendy, it's classic. Maxi dresses easily look their 'age', this one is age defying, like that Oil of Olay stuff. Hopefully, in ten years, if everything hasn't shifted down four inches, I can still wear this dress and it will look as relevant as it does today.
3. It's Lida Baday and it was $6!!!!!!!!
4. It's thrifted but brand new. I checked it for wear very thoroughly. None.
