Five things Friday
Gorgeous wee daffodils that were a gift
they are especially cheerful on these rainy grey days.
Colour and flowers can make a big impact in elevating our flagging spirits.
I know I seek out bright pops of colour at this time of year.
Shopping the trends...
I went to the mall to check out the newest straight cut jeans.
I tried on several pairs but don't think they flatter my short frame.
Too heavy and make my legs look like tree trunks!
I much prefer the skinny silhouette which I find makes me look taller and slimmer. I hope that they will continue to be available as mine are all several years old and will need to be replaced at some point.
I don't usually follow the trends as I prefer a classic look
with a touch of vintage
like this Coach bag
which has many miles on it and some signs of wear
but it ticks all the boxes for me.
Quality, versatility, classic style and streamlined shape.
Did I mention that Vintage is a big fashion focus in Paris?
Eileen Fisher dark denim jeans
Timberland Tobacco coloured short boots
Large square silk hand rolled scarf
in a leopard pattern
Found at a local thrift shop for under $10
Love a bargain and it is in mint condition.
Citrine earrings made by my darling daughter they pair well with the scarf.
Eileen Fisher black vest.
This weekend we have several casual events planned...
I will make every effort to add a pop of colour and a touch of vintage to my basic outfit.
Do you LOVE vintage?
What is your best thrift shop find?
My best "score"
a pair of arts and crafts bookends
copper with sterling silver inlay birds
I sold them so I could buy a strand of baroque pearls.
I literally ran across the street to a dealer who specialized in arts and crafts items
(He purchased the bookends for $500.00)
then I skipped happily back across the street to snap up the pearls.
Hope that you have a fabulous weekend.
