Ethnic printed tunic

Boho style outfit: long ethnic tunic over maxi skirt

Hello everybody! It's been two weeks since my last post...I didn't notice it...how time flies, huh? Is it spring? Or is it age? Frustrating...Anyway, to my today's outfit...all in black-and-white which is not exactly my colour palette but the tunic's print brightens up the whole look. There are several patterns mixed together and the front and back of the tunic are absolutely different. Nevertheless all those prints look harmonious.

Kimono style jacket

Zara oriental kimono style jacket worn over navy blue dress

This oriental print kimono style light jacket I bought last summer. I like it on its own but as it turned out it is very hard to find what to wear this thing with: it's short and loose, with that deep v-neckline and a zipper in front. It doesn't look nice with jeans or any pants (or at least I don't like how it looks) and it goes well only with pencil style skirts but then again, you need to find a suitable top. So far I found only two dresses in my wardrobe that I can wear along with this jacket, and one of them I am showing today.

Patterned corduroy skirt

Vintage St.Michaels corduroy skirt with knit top

This vintage corduroy skirt from St.Michaels was found by my daughter in a charity shop in London and then given to me. Isn't it gorgeous? St Michael was a brand that was owned and used by Marks & Spencer from 1928 until 2000. The skirt's tag proudly says "made in the UK". I am in love with its pattern and colour palette.

Jewelry purchases: necklaces

Coral imitating beads necklace

Today I want to show you a few of my recent jewelry purchases, all necklaces as it turns out. They all are made in Nepal and the first three are from same brand, Women's expressions, though I bought them at different time, not all at once. The coral imitating necklace is the very latest addition to my collection, I bought it just a week ago during an International Fair Trade. The Women's Expressions always participate in such kind of events and it is actually there that I purchase their pieces, because they don't have a retail boutique. The necklace caught my eye straight away: bright red colour, interesting design and simply beautiful in overall. Being made from simple beads it looks so striking. And it was not expensive. That's how it looks on me

Knit dress in bright copper

Copper knit dress with geometric patterns

Surprisingly it is still rather chilly here, still one needs a cardigan or a sweater and some people still go around in jackets though usually it is nice warm whether at this time of the year. So, here is my chance to wear this new knit dress in bright copper colour. Seems like this colour has been my personal favourite this season: I bought a coat, a sweater and a scarf in different shades of copper plus this dress.
