Electric blue paisley

" Paisley or Paisley pattern is a term in English for a design using the boteh, a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian or Indian origin. Such designs became very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries, following imports of post-Mughal versions of the design from British India, especially in the form of Kashmir shawls, and were then imitated locally. The pattern is sometimes called "Persian pickles" by American traditionalists, especially quilt-makers, or "Welsh pears" in Welsh textiles as far back as 1888. "

 Got these jeans form Asos, they are by Just Female - I really love this brand, but for me its a bit pricey, so when I found these on sale I got to have them. I wonder why they was in stock all the sale time, and I think even now they still are available - I guess, people just doesnt like them..Im actually not huge paisley fan, but these in my opinion are just perfect because of colors and high waist. Love!

Also wearing: Oversized mohair cardigan is thrifted, belt thrifted, necklaces are vintage, shoes from H&M, sunglasses from Asos.

Gemstone print skirt


Sooo, after almost month, I finally made one skirt, but so many more different pieces I need to make..Not that I work slowly, the problem is that I cant push myself to work..Also I hope I will finish another skirt very soon, so I can get my hands on dresses, I love dresses, they will be especially chiclooking from my gem printed fabrics. Only ..I wish I had a seamstress, in other words  -I wish I could hire such people, then all the stuff would be finished much more faster...

A lot of Grey

Today I wanted to show just some casual OOTD, and I have incorporated my new thrifted belt - I really love how such belts look with coats, not only on dresses.
Actually, I only just now realized that all of this look is trhifted, except the beanie.

I hope you dont have as cold weather as it is here - its good that I dont need to go anywhere outside - today I will practice piano, finish one little painting, and oh yes..I must sew the clothes from fabrics I ordered, but I just keep putting it back..I must admit, sometimes Im very very lazy..

P.S. Blogger is doing something strange with my photos, they have changed the color, and they doesnt look like I made them in Photocape..Not nice..

September thrift favourites # 1

I have decided to make new blog series, actually I have never had any series before, and I think that it would be nice to have something like that on my blog, its something very similar to youtube Monthly favourites videos( love watching those). And as I really love thrift shopping, it will be easy for me to do these series, although there might be some months with zero thrift finds, because I cant be always very lucky and find great stuff, but I hope I will..:)
So for the September I have few things, that I have wanted for quite some time, and I know I will use them a lot, plus all this suff was suprisingly cheap.

The belts (btw, my BF found them for me, otherwise I just didnt see them):
Rope belt - I think it would look great  with so many things.
Metal plate belt - love that its in nude color, I ordered similar belt form Asos, but also with spikes, and as Im over spike trend, I have sold it, and Im so happy that now I have the perfect one.
Best part about both of these belts arr The Price. Total: 1.00$( yes, one dollar)

The deep ocean blue top - fist my attention grabbed the embellished sleeves, there are many sea shells on them. Then I saw that the label is Reiss, its very rare to find this brand in thrift shops, and even harder to find stuff in perfect condition - but this is in great condition, I would say its brand new. And the price was great too, considering its from Reiss - 5.00 $

Boots I got from latvian Online shop , where girls sell out their wardrobes, Im selling stuff there too, but this was first time I bought something. These boots were brand new and cost only 20.00$ - I really needed some everyday boots, but I couldnt find anything I liked, and with the price tag I like. These boots are from H&M, I think from last  Fall'12 stock, but I think they still look very on trend.

Im not going thrift shopping every day, although I wish I could. And if I could there would be much more great finds, but I try to control myself and buy only stuff I love and will wear, because I have learnt through many years of thrift shopping that otherwhise things just sit in my closet and I dont wear them.

I hope you like this post!:)
