And the sound of your breath in the cold And oh, the sound will bring me home again

I can feel winter slowly but surely creeping in, just a puff of steamy breath here and there or the faint smell of snow blowing past. My favorite season is coming, and I can finally wear my new winter coat I bought at a Uniqlo sale a few weeks ago. I also picked up my vintage dress from the tailor, and now it finally fits properly and I figured out how to make it easier for everyday wear by rolling up the pouffed sleeves. I'm so happy I have this dress fixed (it was too tight in the chest before) because its the perfect combination of floral, black velvet and interesting details like the ruffled neckline with a bow and ruffled hem. Now it can get the love it deserves. I wore it today to do some Christmas errands, hang out with LK and have a family dinner.

  18. I loooooove this outfit (an your new haircut, btw). I was going to buy that coat from Uniqlo! But since I already have a beige duffle coat (although it's more camel ;) ) I opted for another one, and in black. Tough I still got my eyes on that one, maybe in the sales or next year. You styling it definitely made it gain some more points!

  25. That's great that you got that dress fixed so you could wear it! It's always nice when we find a vintage item that fits just right, but most of the time it won't! It looks amazing on you!
