|Topshop pleated maxi skirt for $90|
|of course this is not exactly like Topshop's skirt i wanted but... it's pleated, it's black, it's long and was only $2.00 at Goodwill (wearing this today)|
i bought this black coat at Essex in the spring for $35. so excited to finally get to wear it! it's 75% lambswool, 25% camel-hair. many times Essex has just junk but i am so glad i found this diamond in the rough! and of course as you already guessed i replaced original buttons with JoAnn's military style hammered brass buttons.
my outfit today (especially my coat and my locket) kind of reminded me of some family vintage pictures i have brought with me from Georgia when i immigrated. these are some of my Georgian ancestors. original photographs. one of them dated October 14, 1910!!! these photos are taken 100 years ago in the country of Georgia in cities of Tiflis (now Tbilisi) and Kutaisi.
Georgian language and is addressed to my great-grandmother Nadia Guelesiani from her cousins. apparently they used photographs as greeting cards back then. they all are on some kind of really heavy paper. Jolly Christmas to all! shobas gilocavt! (that's in Georgian)
