Vintage crochet top
ASOS leather skater skirt
Quilted leather purse (no label/vintage)
Vintage earrings and ring (the black one)
Mac "Impassioned" lipstick
One thing I will never get tired of pairing together are two (or more) different textures. I love leather and lace, crochet and leather, and silky blouses with suede shorts or velvet pants. I just love the way contrasting textures feel together!
You've seen me wear this crocheted beauty before. It belonged to my mom. There are actually pictures of her in a family album of her wearing it while she was holding me. I'll share the picture when I find it!
And that, my friends, is one of the many reasons why I enjoy blogging. I'm able to look at what I'm wearing from a stranger's perspective. I don't just see what I look like in a mirror, but I get to see and analyze my outfits from afar through photographs. Posting pictures of my outfits triggers memories of the last time I wore an item, when I wore it, why I wore it, who I was with, and when I bought it. Wearing this crocheted top reminds me of my mother, of that candid photograph that was taken of us two, and of the people I was with that day.
Now I'll have another memory to add to the list. I wore this outfit on a lunch date at the park with my boyfriend. :)
Hope you guys like this look. Happy November!
