Gold Glitter

This is an outfit I wore over the weekend.

I bought this cardigan at a thrift shop over the summer and I absolutely love it. I'm actually wearing it backwards in these photos, which I've been known to do with certain cardigans, such as my plain black one. I wear it unbuttoned, buttoned, and backwards! Understandably, it's getting slightly worn out -- I'll be so sad when it's finally too worn out to wear!

I love slightly sparkly knitted cardigans. I have a few others, all from various thrift shops. And I can wait to bring them and start wearing them again in the coming months!

The jeans are my Forever 21 cropped jeans, which are also getting slightly worn and faded, they're another item I'll be sad to eventually toss out. They're one of my favourite 2012 purchases. The pumps are from Aldo, and the earrings were given to be at Christmas 2010 by my aunt. I forget the shop they're from, but it was a small, independent one downtown.

The lipstick I'm wearing is a bit of Coral Queen blended into Pink Blush, both by Rimmel.

Floral Print and Peach

This is an outfit from a couple of weeks ago (I've been so behind in posting!). I wore my thrifted floral button down shirt with my peach pencil skirt from eBay, and paired them with an old pairs of heels than used to belong to my mum.

I need to take in the seams of the shirt a bit more, I have already but I still find it to be too boxy and the excess of fabric makes it really quite annoying to wear! That said, I love how the colours of it look paired with this peach skirt -- they go together quite nicely, I think!

Black Lace & Denim

This is what I wore on Wednesday. After I took these photos, I realised that the outfit I was wearing was something of a cross of this outfit from July 2011 and this one from June 2010. But this is something like the winter edition, with a shirt layered under the lace shirt and dark tights (not unlike the July '10 outfit, but I think you know what I mean!).

The lace shirt and shorts are from thrift shops, and the shirt under the lace shirt is from Sirens. The tights are by Secret, and the heels are an old pair of mum's that she gave to me.
