Several days of amusement and procrastination in one post.

Went to the local flea market with my friend Massiel and explored. This is city hall, it's very beautiful.

Scored quite a a few things, all very saccharine and girly and not particularly my thing but too cute to pass up. They've all got a few flaws -- the last dress is beautiful (it reminds me of Atonement actually? Random?) but there are a few stains, and one of the sleeves is ripped and the bust doesn't fit very well. But it was too pretty to leave. I got a few portraits of my favorite old film stars and a flower garland as well. 8 bones.

I dunno. Summer and Spring, I love them a lot for the long days, but I can never figure out what to wear because layering is basically all I like doing. It's weird trying to adjust, I find myself wearing really simple, bright, girly outfits a lot when I'd rather be in a deconstructed trenchcoat and a pile of raggedy lace. Bluhhh.

I actually like it when second-hand dresses are a little bit torn or messed up. It adds to the character and adds a sort of grungy juxtaposition to the femininity. Also, a plus if it's in a floral print like yours.

I have to admit I'm beyond jealous of your new coat. So perfect and I am craving just about anything A-line recently. >.<

I adore the last dress! I have the same issues with summer and layering, I love jackets too much. And, I totaly agree with what you said in your last post, fashion should empower the wearer, who cares what anyone else thinks?

The Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet in Vernis features the charm of Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis leather and is named after the zipper closure.

I changed my stubborn idea when I was caught by Louis Vuitton Milla clutch MM and then how Make Louis Vuitton Milla Clutch Your Magic?

I seldom see a Louis Vuitton wallet with the black leather trimming and this Louis Vuitton Men's Long Wallet just stands out.


The series of pictures are taken by David Sims and Louis Vuitton Graffiti on French Vague also echoes the series of Louis Vuitton.

That’s one of Louis Vuitton that is so structured and cute, louis vuitton tivoli gm replica if you are hunting for a chic and cute Louis Vuitton bag.
