Thrifted and Gifted

One of the ways I promote SLOW FASHION is to buy second hand. Thrifting saves money too so I have more to spend on quality clothes.

I love the artistic design on the front and back of this top. The label has been removed so I don’t know where it’s made or the manufacturer, but I can tell it’s a very good quality and super soft.

The jeggings were a gift from one of my dancers: faux leather and faux suede, very comfortable and I get a lot of wear out of them. Black pants are a must for every woman (and for men too) I can wear any top that I own with these.

No signs of Spring yet and it may be a while before she arrives here in Ontario. We’ve swept the snow off our front porch for photoshoots but here’s what our back deck looks like.

Happy March!

  2. Happy March to you Carmen! This top is really nice on you and very unique. I am glad that it is really comfy too it goes great with your pants. Spring is starting to slowly make its way here in Minnesota. The snow is melting as the temperatures are rising! I don’t know if it’s really spring because we can’t get snow up until the end of April. Wishing you a lovely weekend,Terri xo.

      Thanks so much Terri! I can’t imagine anyone giving this unique top away unless it was the wrong size. It’s like new and so comfy! 🙂

    How beautiful this shirt is, I love the print and the drawing. The pants are beautiful and, as you say, they can help you combine many different looks. How beautiful your hair is, I love the hairstyle, your hair mane …
    I commented on the previous post, but I have not seen it published, I hope this one does appear.
