These pics were taken about 2 weeks ago, on a really cold day just before the snowstorm hit the town. Even with so much layering I was quite cold, especially on my feet. Yes, I know, I thought the maxi skirt would (partly) protect me from the cold, and I wanted to be comfortable so I went out wearing it. The worst part was when I took my coat off for the pics and I was really exposed to the wind. Thankfully I didn’t catch a cold (I’m a tough one to break!), but there were some weird old men, looking at us from their car, probably wondering what we were doing, taking pictures in such freezing temperatures. Well, they got the Look back *insert angry-looking face here* and decided to leave us in peace.
Local shop long coat (really old), Bershka sweater (black one-underneath), Lussile shirt, vintage ivory sweater, vintage skirt, Zara doctor bag, Zara shoes, Donna Karan sunglasses, H&M necklace, Mango belt, Michael Kors watch. Nail polish: GT Cosmetics no. 357 by Tommy G.
Oh my, I was indeed wearing many items.
Some close up pics:
Sorry for the quality of that one, I had to crop it to show you a better look of the shoes. They are snakeskin snakeskin pumps that I got in Fall, and haven’t worn so many times yet.
As I was searching for shoes and bags online the other day, I came across, a beautiful clutch in the exact same colors and pattern, here. I know matching heels and bag isn’t considered a fashionable choice these days, but I say it again and call me old-fashioned or whatever: Nothing beats this classic combination. And classic doesn’t follow trends and therefore, can never be out of style. Outdated maybe, but no matter how many years will pass, no one can say that this combination isn’t stylish. That’s why I love classic pieces. They are the key to every wardrobe. Every woman should have classic pieces that can work, whatever the season, and trends may be. So invest in some key pieces, and add some of the current trends to your outfit. But never buy pieces that “scream the year you bought them”, especially if they are expensive. Trends come and go, and you don’t want to buy something that will be hanging in your closet for many years after, waiting for this exact trend to be back. At least this is what I have in mind when I’m doing my shopping, and it can be a great technique to prevent you from buying something you now love but you won’t wear so many times in reality.
Having said that, I’m leaving you with some food for thought.
