You would never guess how long I've kept this skirt that I'm wearing,5 years now! Yes wow,this is one of the few pieces in my closet that I can never bear to give or throw away. The stripes along the skirt is so beautiful and it looks to me like those Christmas candy canes that we eat. Never thought this skirt would ever see the day of light again but it has.
Velvet blazer or velvet in general,I love it as its really very comfortable. Thanks so much to Starr for sending me this last Christmas! She is one person you would want to go thrifting/vintage shopping with and she's super nice.

Travelling would be the main thing for me this year. I have lots of plans to go to places and I do need to start saving! To take in more of nature and to know more about yourself during such trips. Is there one country that's a must go on your list?

Oh yes,I've added some photos from the blogger meet up last week that the kind photographer,Joseph took for us. Thanks,it was odd but really nice of you too. I always love animation photos like this. Thanks Michelle as well,as I took the two photos from her blog.

Big Daddy said...

Those pieces that you keep the longest seem to be the best. This skirt is definitely the cutest thing, and i love how you paired it!

Where are you planning to travel this year? On my list is China, India, and then more attainable ones like New york and stuff.

Vinda Sonata said...

you always look lovely, valencia. i really like your top and skirt. now i understand why it had been kept for 5 years! ;) the animated pictures look bunch of fun! i enjoy seeing all of them!

hope all of your wishes come true. good luck on everything! :)

Jes said...

That blazer looks so lovely! Extremely jealous right now... I have a few items in my wardrobe that do the same thing... make an entry every 12 months or so. then back to the dark gloom.

Where do you want to travel to sweet? Come to Australia!!

I want to go to Canada next, though i really want to go back to London. Loved it there.

i love all the red with this! the candy cane skirt, your necklace, your nails, the shoes.....looks so fabulous with your blazer.

i wore my wolf shirt the other day, but it was dark out and I wasn't able to get any shots. i really loved the outfit though so i'll make sure to wear it for pictures sometime soon. and btw, Jake really does adore his lion shirt and i love when he wears it. i'll try to sneak a picture next time he has it on! haha.
