photo no. 1: the dress i am wearing here came from a store that sells clothing that doesn't usually excite me. (a friend suggested a way that i might curb my seemingly non-stop shopping: only go into stores that sell clothing that doesn't excite me. well i guess that didn't work! i always say that i can find something that i like pretty much everywhere.) i am also wearing an old preloved sweater vest. (i got some new preloved stuff recently. i don't usually go for any of the preloved spring/summer stuff. but the autumn/winter stuff, i usually buy at least one piece each year, going back to when i first discovered preloved some years ago.) my bottoms are by hue. (my collection of bottoms by hue keeps growing! everytime i see them in a new colour, i scoop them up. i recently got a faux leather pair!)
photo no. 5: i am wearing new chelsea boots by john fluevog. (the moment i put them on i realized why it is a good idea to replace old footwear, even if the old footwear still looks good: comfort, support, cushioning and bounce. all of which is nowhere to be seen ... or felt ... in old footwear. still, i am going to hang on to some of my old footwear. particularly my vintages vogs!)
photo no. 6: i am wearing a new shrunken pullover (zara) with one of my old little plaid dresses.
photo nos. 7 and 8: i am wearing a favourite outfit from last year: a gap shirt with an h&m tie; a wrap cardi from anthropologie; a golden pullover from club monaco; a bustle skirt by bunny and pear; hue trousers; and fluevogs.
photo nos. 9 to 13: the "i really, really want them" new sorels make it out of the closet ... in both their colours.
