Cardis remembered

I remember the time cardigans were always 
part of my outfits.

Then, over time, we drifted apart.

But, I never gave them away.
Well, just a few.
Since days have been a little chillier due to the constant rain, 
I chose to wear one of my green ones today.


Too many

Because of the poor quality of these 
pictures you can't really tell.

But, I made the mistake of wearing too many prints, 
textures and designs together.

It had been a while since I wore something I
thought looked awful.

Printed trousers Zara - Burgundy flats Isole

I guess this outfit makes up
for all that lost time :(


English dresses

I've been aiming to pack for colder weather as
I have an upcoming trip.

So I went to a thrift shop I recently discovered and tried on this 
vintage English dress, which I actually really liked… until
everyone I showed this picture to gave me their feedback.
I felt it was very McQueen, but my audience thought otherwise.
Some of them just gave a negative glance, others a loud 
"no, no" and the unforgettable "you look Amish" comment.
I had planned to buy this and wear it a formal gala.

I also tried another vintage wool dress, this one from my closet.
It felt a bit like a costume, so I am not taking it with me.

Right now my suitcase is still empty...


Little incentives

Sometimes when I dread something I search for 
incentives to make the journey better.

For example, I take a history class on Saturdays, where
I have to be in the classroom by 7:00 am.
It's too early, but I signed up for it.

So, my incentive here, which I look forward to since 
I get up in the morning, is that the University has a cafeteria 
that serves a dish I love.

So I look forward every Saturday to having this particular breakfast.


XL Wood beads

I know it's huge.

My XL wooden bead necklace is quite a statement piece.

They add character to any outfit.
I chose to wear it today because these days…
character is what I need.



Yeah, I am aware that sometimes I have weird tastes.

I am the one who likes airplane meals, 
goes to Chilean vineyard wine tasting and gives her wine away.

Oh, and I actually enjoy hospital food.

Do you have odd tastes ?


Ripped off

I try to think of myself as a savvy shopper.

One who finds good quality items at superb prices.

So, you can imagine how I feel when I recently found out
after a trip to the jeweller that a vintage bracelet I had 
purchased at an antique shop in Argentina 
was steel coated gold… 

Vintage Invicta watch and bracelet
and not what I was told by the seller.
Yeah, this is my rip off.
