'If Aught Possess Thee From Me, It Is...[Lovely] Moss'


When I first saw this silk sequin top at JCrew, I fell in love with it - the mossy color, the muted glint - but then I saw the price tag of $149 and became somewhat disenchanted.  However, since JCrew always super marks down their items after a couple of weeks, I readily parted with my money, paying a glorious $41 for it.

I was equally in raptures that I could finally take my jacket off and pose for the camera without freezing!  Oooooh, warm weather is coming!!!!

  9. that shirt is fabulous! it's subdued and understated yet striking and definitely interesting. Also, those boots with the rolled tuxedo pants is a genius combination, I love the look but never would have thought of it!

    have I told you that those sunglasses make me feel things deep within me that I never knew I had the capacity to feel(i.e. holy crap they're amazing)?!

  47. Is there better thing than pay less for the pretty clothes that we fall in love? Almost the same happened to me about the 3D floral top that you saw on my blog. In American Apparel it costs 80 euro, but in Zara it costs 40 euro!!!!! I loved!!!

    Your outfit is very inspiring! You have a great sense of style, my dear! The military green is perfect in our color! The trench coat is to die for! What a elegant woman you are!!! I'm your fan!!!!

    You are writer, right?! Gosh, I would love if you could read what I write!!! I'm so sorry, because I think I'm not able to write in english all what a meant in portoghese!

    Take care,
    Cris.

  49. Oh no, if it was $, I would be the happiest girl os the world! But I it was € 40! In American Apparel it is € 80,00 (+ the delivery)! In Zara, there is only one kind of color, but NO PROBLEM! I love my top!!!!

    Oh, I remembered that in Lookbook (and another comunities), I wrote (google tradutor helped me) in english! But for sure, is full of mistakes! kkkk


    Beijinhos,
    Cris.
