Outfit Globalisation

Black and white polka dot pleat skirt and top Liz Claiborne, similar skirt here and here - Black cardigan H&M, similar  
Red velvet heels Melissa similar - Black quilted bucket bag Love Moschino, almost identical here and here 

As mentioned yesterday I packed polka dots and flower brooches for this business trip. Today it was all about this two piece set that actually looks like a dress. Its easy to wear, does not need to be ironed and fits marvellously well. Interestingly, the polka dot top and skirt were hand me downs, the red velvet shoes I bought in Brasil, the flower brooch is from an artisan market in Buenos Aires, the cardigan (made in China) bought at H&M during a NYC trip, the bag, the newest of them all, a Moschino quilted bucket bag was purchased in Panama. Talk about outfit globalisation.

That's definitely quite the international outfit! And I just love the velvet shoes - such a great addition to this.

Kudos again on this great capsule theme - the red flower is so classy with the black polka dots. I love that your pieces are from all over the world - I'm wearing a dress from New York and a cuff from Nashville today, myself!

Oh that's a lovely set - really does look like a dress! I like the little red touches with it, nice way to accessorise :)

It's interesting how varied our outfits can be - although I think most of my day-to day stuff has been bought here in Australia it's certainly made all around the world and there are a few pieces I've bought further afield :)

Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

I have bought most of my closet in Poland but those items were made in different countries, some very very "weird" - for example Iraq. Enyway, this polka dots look is very good, thanks this jacket and red flower. Fit great, looks very Spanish :)

Dear Lorena, this is definitely a global look :) I see you got the pieces nearly from everywhere around the world! And the complete look is absolutely fantastic and even better as the quality of the blouse and skirt is so fabulous!
