Collection Recollection

Paper bag waist skirt Carolina Herrera, similar here in shirting stripes and here a fab denim version.

Blue, black top Zara - Black vintage bag Croft & Barrow

Purple blue SJP velvet heels, here another pair of velvet pumps from SJP 

I am a collector, that I know. I am always collecting something, sometimes knowingly, others unconsciously. 
The first collection I have recollections of is of postcards from around the world, then coins and bills. Afterwards it was stamps. Then, it was all things related to the Panama Canal as one of my ancestors worked in the construction, first during the French attempt and then in the final phase built by the United States. This collection process in this specific theme lasted years, in fact I think it's my biggest collection. 
Nowadays, I've turned to hand bags and blazers... How about you ? What do you collect ?

I love the paperbag waist on your skirt. I had a pair of paperbag waist shorts and every time I see this waist on anything I remember them and regret letting them go!

I'm like my dad, I collect so many things. Handbags are my usual, haha. I have way too many!

Hope you had a great Christmas Lorena. Such a fabulous skirt and sweater, always so polished. I love that you always choose classic sunglasses too. And that bracelet is fun!

To answer your question, I am a collector too. I have huge collections of clothes! And I also own quite a few porcelain shoes and bags and some shot glasses.

Welcome by today and every Thursday to share your gorgeous style by linking up with me. Thank you and Happy New Year!
