Bracelets? Knot thrifted and 'amour' one c/o RedEnvelope (here) Sunglasses? Betsey Johnson (similar here)
I got this skirt from Netty Vintage for $5 at her end-of-the-season sale. I love the contrast of the red and pink and the mohair texture of the bottom half. I took in the bottom (I know... more alterations? Who am I?) to change the shape of the skirt from an A-line to a pencil skirt. I didn't add a slit during the alterations so I do have to keep my steps smaller with the new shape. I've probably mentioned this before, but that is hard for me to do because I like to keep my walk fast and my steps large. In my first year of university I lived at home while I went to school in Toronto, and I spent a lot of time run-walking to catch trains and buses commuting back and forth. One time a man stopped me to compliment my efficient walking technique in passing the crowds to make the train. That was the highlight of my year.
And unintentionally I have a bit of a past-due Valentine's Day look going on. The red and the pink, the heart on my nails, the 'amour' bracelet... all that I need to do is switch my rainy London tee out for a 'city of lovvvvversss' Paris tee (ah... and there is a Paris tee too but it has nothing to do with lovers, more with puppies and Eiffel Towers...). Nevermind, the London tee is romantic enough, who doesn't love an occasional rainy day?... At this point, rain over snow would mean spring might be here and nothing could be sweeter than that.
And there I go again... begging for spring. What is a fashion blog if the conversation doesn't circle back the the weather at some point?
