Hello All! I admit that I am a bit of a nosy parker and really love "What Is In My Handbag" and "What I Am Wearing Now" posts. I can have a virtual rummage through someone's handbag and ogle their closets. So today I thought I would do a "What I Am Wearing" post. Winter came late this year and so I am still wearing a winter coat and boots when I go out.
The red tote bag was a Christmas gift. It is vegan leather so I am curious to see how it will hold up over time. I love how leather ages over time and just looks better and better but I am definitely open to trying vegan leather. Of course, I remember when vegan leather was simply known as "vinyl" (!!).
Do you get bored with wearing the same winter outfit over and over again? I have really embraced having a capsule wardrobe but when faced with the winter glooms, wearing the same winter coat for months on end does tend to add to the general seasonal dreariness. One way I get around this is to switch out my accessories on a regular basis.
I have a small collection of vintage brooches, all thrifted, which I love and I will pin one to my coat just to add a bit of fun. I love the penguin as he is such a cute little guy and reminds me of "March of the Penguins" (which I have never been able to watch all the way through because I get too caught up in the fate of the penguin chicks). Do you have a favourite?
I do hope Spring will finally show itself. Then I will switch out my wool scarves to a silk scarf. I have a small collection of vintage scarves too which I love. Scarves are a great way to change up an outfit. Because almost all of my accessories were thrifted and/or vintage, they didn't cost a fortune and, when I look at my wardrobe, I don't feel a sense of deprivation because I know I can switch up a look if I am feeling a sense of ennui. Do you have any thrifty fashion tips that you would like to share?
