Vintage Lovers

Last weekend was a good one, and not just because it was the last glimpse of heaven with a sunny 10 degree Sunday but also because I scored the cable knit sweater of my dreams (%100 wool, a little cropped with low shoulders and extra long sleeves) among other things from TOKEN at the Old Wig Vintage Lovers sale. I’m not saying this because I’m friends with the owners, since we became friends thanks to their awesome work, but if you’re looking for a vintage shop that sells minimal and contemporary pieces you will gladly wear today and not look like you’re a collage girl about to go to a festival, your search is over. .

Next Best Thing

In a perfect world, there would be no war and I could be dressed up head to toe in Céline all day every day. But the reality is terrible things are happening in the world, so much that you lose track and your sense after a while, and I call myself lucky if I can score a bag or pair of shoes on ebay every now and then. Our relationship is in the phase where we don’t know each other well enough to be friends on Facebook but I follow her on every social media channel possible (aka, stalking in the digital age). And as I’m saving money to get to know her better, I invest in my rebound relationship – the next best thing, Zara. I promised myself not to shop so much from high street stores anymore but this dress couldn’t go unnoticed. . Navy sweater dress with flare hem Zara (similar here & here) .

Sweater Dressing

Or more like sweater pyjamaing is what I’m totally into these days, I don’t know if it’s because of the cold seriously starting to hit or because I gained my usual “winter is coming” weight but I really can’t stand anything skintight or uncomfortable lately. So I got inspired from the always stylish Daniella and wore my sweater dress over a pair of wide leg ivory pants (I wore it once before with my boyfriend jeans, it’s becoming a thing with me). .

Stage Illusion

Confession number one: I am freezing beyond belief even though I’m wearing a turtleneck sweater inside my shirt dress but a coat would have killed this look completely so of course I chose pneumonia. Confession number two: that thing wrapped around my neck is not an actual sweater, it’s a scarf that has a fake sweater look because… I don’t know why I bought it instead of just wrapping a sweater around my neck like a normal person. It seemed fancy, it seemed easy and I’m sorry but I still don’t regret it. It’s my grand stage illusion. . Ivory shirt dress H&M (similar here & here) .

Tailors around the world should fly the flag at half-staff every time I get my hands on a pair of scissors and customize something for myself; case in point this new sweater (used to be) dress. I actually bought it with loads of love in hopes of achieving the winter version of dress over pants look, which I’m actually pretty good at if being given the right garments, but this one just didn’t feel right. So yes, instead of returning it and buying something else like a normal person, I cut it (a heavily knitted sweater, right in the middle, with a pair of freaking scissors) and turned it into an asymmetrical hem sweater with a long back.
