What was once old, is new again

Lover “allegra” dress (similar), Glassons cardigan, Alexander emile tote, Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Karen Walker belt, Marc by Marc Jacobs bolt bracelet

There’s nothing like ending a sunny day with a couple of drinks and good company to quickly whittle away the hours. I met up with Michelle and Nina after weeks of rescheduling to talk Christmas, life, and the inevitable, fashion. As I probably mentioned more than once over the course of a few hours, my obsession with Lover (the label) is at an all time high, most likely stemming from the acquisition of this dress from many seasons past. As I learnt through the course of the day, perhaps not the best idea to go with a long-sleeved dress when the sun is shining its strongest and you are Christmas shopping. Live and learn!

    Hey is that title from Alice in Wonderland ? Just wondering, since I wrote a review of the movie (school assignment some time ago) and while google’ing I saw that same in Finnish, it stuck to my head, and I put it as headline to my article .. but I couldn’t find info anywhere again whether it was even from the book or not ! 😀
    AND about your outfit, I think I’ve said this before but I really love that cardigan and I’m also smitten about those kitten flats.. Adorable. 🙂 Really lovely look !

    + I didn’t send cards either! Didn’t find time to make them after all. So don’t feel bad 😉

      Perhaps subconsciously it is, or it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that there is similar phrasing in that book. Kind of reminds me that I should read those again, at my parents place I have Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking glass, two of my favourite books while growing up.

      Christmas cards are so hard! I can never understand how people find the time.

    You look wonderful!

    Aaahhhhhh I wore my Allegra some time last week. I always get a somewhat nostalgic feeling wearing it. The Allegra was one of my earlier Lover purchases and still loooove it to bits!

    I love love your Kitty flats too. My burgundy ones just came in the mail yesterday hehe. I have this hankering feeling that the black will somehow make its way into my ‘paws’ sooner or later.

    I love wearing, re-wearing and rediscovering items of clothing in my wardrobe. It does make me something of a hoarder though as I always intend to get plenty of use out of the things I buy. Lovely shape and versatility to this dress.
