Street vendor bought

Black trousers Mossimo - White eyelet wrap top Blessings - Black silk tank top Tess -
Yellow heels Tsubo - Grey bag Ferragamo


Several years ago while on a business trip to Lima, Peru I had some time off and ventured to Kennedy Park. Back then, the area had many street vendors who sold locally made cotton clothes off a cart. As Peru is known for excellent quality cotton and I love eyelet and white tops, when I came across this wrap top, it was a no brainer and it came home with me. I actually remember having to remove my coat, as it was quite chilly, to try this one over my clothes.
Have you ever purchased clothes from a street vendor ? If so, what ?
Oh and today, in case you've been following the pin saga, I've pinned my beetles to the side strap of my shoes ;)

Add color to you look with yellow shoes:

Love that wrap top! What fun colored shoes and how creative to add your pin to them.

Hehe, those little beetles pop up everywhere.
I bought a dress, a skirt shoes and a hat from various markets in Italy, but typically that is not something I'd do!

That top is lovely on you! My Spanish ladies dress was purchased in Camden Market in London in a non-solid booth (no walls, just curtains) - I couldn't even try it on, just hold it up to me and hope for the best!

Love the beetles on "our shoes" - mine left my closet a year ago.

Love those shoes - I'm eternally looking for nice kitten heel sling-backs! x

That is a beautiful top Lorena! Great purchase, because it looks fabulous on you! It will go with so many different things. But I love it with pants :D

Oh that is a beautiful top! :) I've never bought anything like that sadly! Never been in a place and had the opportunity too! Have lots of souvenirs from trips but all bought in stores.


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! :)

The top you bought during these business trip is lovely and timeless and I like it how you combined it. In the past when I was young I bought several times something from a street vendor and some of the pieces I wore a lot :)
