New to my desk...

I'm pretty sure my desk is one of the messiest at work.
Blue skirt H&M - Blue striped top Polo Ralph Lauren - Innovativi wedges
Here you can find books, tons of papers, body products.. you name it.

My last addition was Kevin, the Minion.

What's new on your desk ? 

Purchased in July

It's a fact: when I travel, I purchase.
My latest trip to Peru only reconfirmed this:

Two merino extra fine sweaters, one v neck in black and a tan round neck one.
Both Benetton and on sale, they were 20.71 USD each. 

Another dress:) 
Valentino Techno Couture, pink pleated dress.
I think its from the 2012 collection, it was  
originally priced at 1,790.00 USD, I got it on
a super sale.. 

I also fell for a Kate Spade "Beware of Sharks" tote,
I think I am going to have to unsubscribe from their
mailing list, this time it set me back 145.75 USD.

My Bimba y Lola flats were a purchase from a sale at 
Saga Falabella in Peru for 31.43 USD !

For 31.75 USD I purchased these three pairs of flats, 2 Viascar and
one EM - meaning they were 10.58 USD each. 

Also from Peru I picked up this pom pom necklace 
and bug earrings for a total of 21.00 USD

From this same artsy boutique in Lima, I got a a leather 
and gold tone handmade butterfly bracelet for 8.00 USD
and a gold tone heart shaped earrings made by the 
 same designer for 6.00 USD.

A striped dress by Daisy Fuentes on sale for 10.50 USD

At 323.35 USD I'm speechless. 

July closet editions

The month of July brought together some
interesting closet edits:

Started off with my white linen Portsaid 
dress (sold at the flea market), purchased recently 
and worn just once - followed by a vintage orange dress
 that after one too many alterations, I just gave up on.

Another dress worn just once was this by Jessica Simpson
(sold at the flea market)
altered twice, worn once, at the end it was too big. 
Striped My Michelle dress, usually worn as a swim suit cover up.

N/X Natural Exchange grey two piece pant suit,
over ten years old, got plenty of wear at the beginning
now, its just hanging there.

Then came the cardigan and sweater editions: green H&M cardigan
(sold at the flea market)burgundy cardigan and blue Py Casual draped cardigan like top.

This pink polka dot cardigan from Forever 21
got very little wear, its almost new. 

Black draped cardigan from Forever 21, grey vest from Stefanel Kids
(sold at the flea market) and my light blue short sleeve sweater by It's Our Time.

Black Jump USA top worn twice in about 8 years.

Light turquoise top Septima, was burnt during ironing in the back
part and the straps kept falling off my shoulder.
A green strapless sweater top Polo Ralph Lauren, a gift from Sheila.
I had issues parting with it, because I always received compliments 
when I wore it however it was heavy and got little wear. 
Black top ECI New York, worn once in six years.

Nude Express top(sold at the flea market) has been around 
for quite some time but it has been worn very little, white top 
by Solitaire (sold at the flea market)yellow top by St. John's Bay.
Purple top and  matching headband from Maroon.

Snake print top from Dalia Collection(sold at the flea market).

A pair of jean shorts by Tommy Hilfiger, over ten
years old. Never worn on the blog, just on weekends
for doing the garden… where it was finally torn.

A teal/turquoise clutch, that due to humidity began
to fall apart. 

My Christian Lay Love rings, they were in bad shape
and the rhinestone fell out :(

A total for July of 26 edits. 


We've all got reasons.
Trousers Forever 21 - Pink Salmon sweater Daisy Fuentes - Brown bag Madison Coach
A basis for a cause, a statement in justification.

The reason I always wear this sweater with a layering item, wether it's
a scarf or a necklace, is because it's stained in the front.

My judgement would say to just get rid of it. 

However I like it so much that I don't want to part with it.

Silver tone Kello Kitty ring 
Gold flats SM 
Sometimes our good judgement is clouded by reasons we make up.

While I will continue to hold on to the pink sweater, at least for now, 
the trousers are definitely gone.

The boxy jacket

I've been quite uninspired lately, which is the reason I have
 been looking into magazines just to figure what to wear.

When I came across this outfit in In Style magazine, I 
remembered a jacket I own and thought
I'd put this simple look together.

Jeans Liz Claiborne - White top Forever 21 - Jacket Ann Taylor Loft - 
The moment I saw these pictures, I remembered
wearing this jacket almost the same way, a few 
years ago while in NYC. 
Brown bag Coach Madison -Brown shoes Baci- Brown sunglasses Michael Kors

While the jacket may be the same, the person
wearing it has changed since then.
