a penny for your thoughts

wearing: cardigan - vintage aquascutum // t shirt - west 49 // suede skirt - vintage // chain tassel necklace - The Pretty Secrets vintage // leather purse - vintage cole haan // tennis socks - unknown // penny loafers - vintage

After years of searching I found the most perfect pair of penny loafers and coincidentally it's nearly too cold to wear them but better late than never according to the old adage. These are my favourite fall pieces right now, the suede olive a-line skirt seems to go with everything as does the heavy knit navy Aquascutum oversized cardigan. I'm all about versatile items which is sometimes tricky with vintage especially outrageous 60s eye-melter patterns.

Speaking of vintage clothes - I do have an online store but The Pretty Secrets Vintage will be popping up in Edmonton in the near future! Details to follow.

Also, I've been guest blogging at Murale Muse - Canada's answer to Sephora. Check out my first entry on winter skincare here
