100% ?

Black zipper skirt Burberry
Silver top Lanvin, here gold version 
Black Vernice Floyd peep toe shoes Gucci
Black zipper skirt Burberry - Vintage diamond ring, similar 
Furla patent hand bag with chain, similar - Vintage gold ring, similar 

As I have mentioned before, my shopping habits have changed drastically this year, I barely buy anything new. 
This outfit is proof of that. The skirt with zipper detail was a steal, considering its Burberry and that I paid less than half of what they are selling it for. The metallic top is by Lanvin, from around 2008 and was just over 22.00 USD, yet another great find.
The peep toe shoes are Gucci and were a bargain, same as the black patent turn key bag from Furla.
This is probably the closest I will get to an outfit being a 100% from consignment.

Dress & Blazer

Black dress George - Printed blazer Peter Pilotto, here another vintage option 
Black Ella tote bag Tory Burch - Black pointy patent flats Zara

I am keeping it quite simple when it comes to getting dressed. I've got too much of a whirlwind around me. So, its pretty much basic pieces and those that actually, barely fit, like this dress and blazer.

Printed top Escada Sport, similar - Trousers H&M, love these tie waist ones on sale
Flats Bimba & Lola - Sunglasses Michael Kors, similar
Brown hand bag Furla, similar

While I am far from doing my yearly recap there is one thing I am certain about, if I splurged on anything this year, it was on two things: sunglasses and jewelry. I knew it right there and then when I was making the purchases that it was a bit too much. 

How about you? What did you splurge on this year?

Taupe suede block heel shoes Breckelle's, similar
Brown hand bag Furla, similar
Striped flower belt 

My secret wish is to take all items in my closet to the lowest cost per wear possible. Sigh.
This dress is down to 4.55 USD on cost per wear, including today. If you had to calculate a cost per wear on an item you are wearing today, how much would it be and for what item?

Au revoir butterfly

Trousers H&M, similar
Blue vintage blazer Feraud, similar vintage option
Silver block heel shoes, similar - Brown hand bag Furla, similar
Butterfly print button shirt Available, love this men's option - Vintage silver dragonfly pin, similar
This shirt has been with me for quite sometime. It is pre blog, so it's over ten years. I remember buying it when I started a job that required constant travel to the Caribbean islands.  It's of light cotton, does not wrinkle and of course it has butterflies :) 
Lately I have been wearing it over and over only to convince myself that it's no longer a garment I gravitate towards, which means its just taking up space.  So, au revoir butterfly.

Brown mules HMD
Do you ever get hand me down (HMD) or cast aways from your friends' closets? In my case the question is yes.  In fact these brown mules are part of a friend's Marie Kondo edit. I took them out for a spin today and realized they are not for me and am passing them on.

So, do you ever get hand me down or cast aways from your friends' closets?

I recently bought this skirt and I am still questioning its permanence in my closet.

Ricatti off white shoes - Off white and purple trim drawstring bag Coach, similar

I purchased these off white shoes during a recent vacation and when I got home I realized they matched my off white and purple bag perfectly. I gave tried them out today with an also off white background printed flower kimono. I have to say I liked it. 
Specially because I would never wear these shoes with jeans. The idea of stepping just outside the comfort zone has its rewards.
