Through your eyes I saw that time stood still

Oversized cardigan:handmade by Mom
Vintage shirt:Ralph Lauren,thrifted
Scarf:online,Alexander Mcqueen
Leggings:Random store in town
Shoes:Dirty Pretty Things




I need my mom to teach me how to crochet or knit. This oversized cardigan is made by her more than 15 years ago and I always wear it out when the days are cooler. I love the light blue match with those cream lines. Today's outfit was more of a grab and go situation. Didn't really think exactly what I wanted to wear,but they matched alright.
Floral's something I always love. Finally got a new pair of shoes,floral ones. The colors on it are gorgeous and its gives that dreamy romantic vibe to it. It's been like months since I got myself a pair of new shoes. Good to have something new to wear on my feet.

Got another package last night and I found that it was from the Lucky Underwear giveaway I won awhile back too. Come on,every girl needs pretty undies too right ? I won a pair of undies,but Miriam of Bjorn Borg was kind enough to send me a few more goodies along too.
Thanks so much girl!

Björn Borg is a Swedish company that owns and develops the Björn Borg brand. Our brand is recognized for high-quality products and creative and innovative design, influenced by the sporting heritage associated with the Björn Borg name.
Their underwear line is filled with so many gorgeous designs and also they are really comfortable to wear as well. Click here to see the whole collection.

Lastly,I will be able to tell you all the exciting news I've been keeping with me for awhile now tomorrow. It's actually more on a personal thing,something that I love and a decision I've made. So I'll fill you all in with the details on the next post.

Don't forget to join the Heel Candies-One for you,One for me competition here!Stand a chance to win a pair of shoes and a pair of Jonathan Aston tights!

That handmade cardigan is so lovely :) It's not hard to learn to crochet or knit. I know how to do both, but am not as talented as others out there. I recommend the book, Stich and Bitch. It's very good ^_^

Becks said...

Diane said...

Valencia your shies are great. They have a wonderful print and prints are all over this season, they're in the collections of so many big designers.

The funny thing is that I was also thinking about knitting a pale pink over sized cardigan for myself, but I don't have time for knitting...

Anyway, have a fabulous day!

oh, what a comfy looking cardigan, i love it! i can't believe your mom made that! so much patience. it looks awesome with that teal shirt you got one. always fabulous =)

crocheting is pretty easy. i learned from a co-worker then studied youtube videos for the rest! there are some pretty good basic videos out there. once you start, you just get better and better b/c you get the feel of it as you go. try it!

I love how you mix all the prints in the sweater, scarf and shoes. Those shoes are fantastic, on that note!

And I'll definitely having to check back on your exciting news. Sounds very intriguing. Hmmm, what could it be? ..

The oversized cardigan basically defines how I've been living lately. Due to studying for finals, I cannot be bothered to dress up, so oversized cardigans and leggings have become a sort of informal uniform.

DISTRIKMODE said...
