what I wore : orange you glad

Thursday, February 21, 2013

details
coat - Vintage
brooch - thrifted
necklace - c/o Oasap
belt - came with the dress
tights - Target
shoes - c/o Wanted Shoes
camera bag - c/o August Wrinkle

I inadvertently added another camera bag to my collection with this bag from August Wrinkle! I just thought it would make a cute purse but come to find out my camera bag insert fits inside perfectly. It's actually way better than previous bag I was using the insert in, so much roomier. It also has a ton of pockets which is always a plus. I've been pocket obsessed for as long as I can remember. The more pockets a backpack had the more likely it would be the one I chose for my school year. Even to this day my decision to buy a coat, purse or anything really can be based on how many pockets it has. What can I say, I've always liked to carry way more stuff than I really need. I mean, c'mon, who doesn't need a whole pocket devoted to lip balm or gum. Haha!

Hope you're having a lovely Thursday!

PPS. This is the last post (at least for a little while) with blue hair! Last weekend I ventured into new hair color territory. Can't wait to share photos!

  4. THAT COAT.

    And the shoes! I absolutely love your collection of oxfords.... I've been hoping to come across some cute ones in the shops around, but no luck :(

    Definitely looking forward to the new hair- I adore the blue on you, but I know how much fun it is to move away from your "natural" color for a bit (Pink has been my go-to for years. Getting ready to go back, actually!)! So curious as to what you chose this time around!

  9. Oooh, excited about the new hair! I dyed my tips purple last night (first time I've ever dyed my hair) and I'm already excited about trying new colours! Love the bag, I'm the same with pockets. Once I almost bought a pair of boots simply because they had pockets...
