Vintage Gifts

My super fashionable great aunt was in town a few weeks ago.
She's my Fairy-Godmother of vintage and always surprises me
with something spectacular from her own collection.


This time around she gave me gorgeous vintage Matisse 
necklace and earring set.
Its what seems to be cooper and green enamel.


I had not seen anything like it...


I was smitten by the second piece: a garnet brooch. 


While its missing a garnet, it really stands out.

I cannot wait to wear these.

Top 18: Blue


Last week I took all of my tops out of my closet.
I did not dare to count, but as I arranged them
back into the cramped space I chose to leave 
some of them out.

Jeans Zara - Black bow shoes Melissa - Blue top - Guatemala headband

This blue top was one of them.

I chose to wear it to a walking tour of the old part of the city.

Its no longer "me" so, off it goes.

Top Sixteen: My Michelle lace

Last week I took all of my tops out of my closet.
I did not dare to count, but as I arranged them
back into the cramped space I chose to leave 
some of them out.

Burgundy trousers Valerie Bertinelli - Black lace top My Michelle - Black patent shoes Zara
My black My Michelle brand lace top was one of them.


I searched the last 6 years and could not find trace of a single wear.


Meaning its escaped al previous closet edits and that its
been worn once in six years.


There is not much to think about, it's going in the bag.

Valentino… like

First I saw this Bow vs Bibs feature via
InStyle Magazine October 2014 issue.


Afterwards I saw this Valentino shirt.




Then I remembered a pink and cream vintage bib that I had never worn,
which happens to match perfectly with my Max Studio cream blouse.


… it clicked and voilá this outfit came together.

Black pencil skirt Apt. 9 - Cream blouse Studio M. - 
Sometimes I am surprised how things
I've had for so long have never been worn 
together.

Brown bag Madison Coach - Black patent heels Vince Camuto


Happy Tuesday.
