As we all know, time waits for no one, so you may have noticed my sporadic absence of late, however I am managing to visit your lovely blogs when I can. Gathering moments to squeeze in bits of craft-time also seems like a wish and a hope away. But, I was recently inspired and purchased a few trimmings for personal projects.
It started with my search for a vintage belt that I wanted to wear when another item immediately surfaced instead. I had perused my closets to find these vintage trousers that I’ve not worn since last year a few times—unfortunately I was not successful at locating them, that is ... until now!
Alas, the trousers were visibly folded, amongst the steam trunk of other vintage goodies. It was a good day!
After my minor shopping trip, I was sent a bag of vintage delights (scarves and jewellery) from my sister as well, which just made the day even better! I love when special items are passed down from your parents, then it eventually makes its way to you at the right time. I will surely be donning a few of these scarves very soon.
As for the outfit that I wore to work, this is a combination of structure and edge—I wore my menswear inspired vest with a layered blouse and high-waisted leather trimmed trousers. of course, caution was made stepping into these tricksy trousers. Yes, I still had to make sure that I didn't puncture anything, as they seem to have been made for a faux-human in the waist area, but that's another story.
Enjoy the week!
