I thrifted this skirt for 3€ last week, and I think it deserves a prize for making me wear the grand total of two items for the first time this year: my thrifted, salmon red blazer from H&M and my blue (okay, turquoise) suede shoes from ASOS. The sunglasses are also from ASOS and the black silk shirt is from COS. I can't remember who made the black socks, but let it be known that they are long and have a fabulously lumpy effect on the legs. Intentionally lumpy legs aside, I was guided by colour and proportion more than anything else when I assembled this outfit. The short jacket works great with the long, high waisted skirt, whilst the red really makes the rest of the colours pop. My eyes feast when I look at it.
In retrospect, I think I might have been subconsciously inspired by this piece of art by Karl Åge Riget entitled "Red Casino 69" (1972) which I thrifted last week for just a fraction of its estimated value (muahahaha!). The checks, the beads and the green and the red are at least all represented.
I'm finally starting to "get" jewelry. This outfit just wouldn't have been the same without the beaded necklace from the thrift shop.
I recently came across Laura's blog and immediately noticed her donning the bracelet version of the necklace, so I'm guessing it's not all that unique. (Above picture has been snagged from her blog.)
Hello! I just happen to be hanging out in a forest clearing. It was really too warm to wear a jacket that day. I suffered long and fought bravely, but had to give up in the end and put the jacket away. Let this picture stand forevermore as a potent reminder of just how big a difference one small jacket can make.
