Almost

I am really obsessed with long blazer dresses right now. They're so elegant, and I especially love when they are somewhat form-fitting, but not really... if that makes any sense. The one I wore today was found at a thrift shop, it had some ugly black buttons on it, so I took I replaced them with big crimson ones!
My brother and I definitely have a love-hate relationship!
I wore the vintage dress with my current favorite shoes by Givenchy.

Fashionista NoNo said...

again looking great. You inspired me to go to a thrift store and boy oh boy, I found some crazy clothing items for the cheapest price ever. I have always been a thrift store hater just because I don't like wearing second hand clothes but o my goshh I found some amazing pieces, you're so inspiring. Also, I'm envius because Canada we rarely get the advantage of buying Givency shoes, I have never seen a louboutin shoe here or YSL for that matter!! And sales suck, Aldo is the highlight of shoes here. But I love your blog. Add my blog to ur list if you want... Tu es très élégante.
