We used to live across the river from the Pioneer Tower for 25 years. The view of this century old tower took my imagination back to the fairytale stories of my childhood and I imagined Rapunzel living in a tower like this.
During our vacation in California in 2006, we were staying in Huntington Beach at an ocean-view hotel. We traveled along the Pacific Coast highway to beach towns, as far north as Malibu and down to San Diego. Stopping at some lovely beaches like Laguna Beach and Long Beach, where I bought this designer outfit in a little boutique in Long Beach.
The skirt and matching top have an asymmetrical design. I love the colours and unusual patchwork of various fabrics. It has an old-fashioned feel to it like something from medieval times yet with a modern twist. It seems timeless, still in style after all these years.
My faux suede boots were bought in Huntington Beach.
After this photoshoot we went for dinner to a new Mexican Restaurant in town and enjoyed a delicious bean burrito with brown rice, guacamole, tomatoes, corn and more.
This outfit is almost 12 years old, but has never been on my blog till now. Whenever I wear it, I think of our holiday in California, Christmas 2006.
Do you have clothes older than 10 years?
Have a marvellous Monday!
