Wednesday, September 21, 2011 Flash of Plaid





[Shirt: Forever 21] [Skirt: Vintage Diane Von Furstenberg] [Belt: Men's Vintage] [Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell] [Purse: Foley & Corinna] [Sunnies: Tom Ford] [Jewelry: J.Crew, Omega, Tiffanys, Vintage, picked up on travels] [Headband: Nordstroms]

J'adore this skirt!  In preparation for the move to Paris, I decided to start buying vintage goods on eBay, a lot of them - and this one nearly didn't make the boat, or plane, or however my shipping got here.  So happy it did!

On another note, my French lessons end this week and hopefully the moving process will come to an end then too, that means I will have free time, something that has been so few and far in between in the past three years.  I cannot wait to read a good book, sit in a cafe far after my espresso has been tossed back, and to find Paris by getting lost.  Is there any shop, patisserie, fromagerie I shouldn't miss (I know there are lots!)?

6 am in the States. I always check your blog first thing before checking the news. I thought I saw all of your ebay/impulse purchases before you left. But I missed this one. Your new skirt, your face and your wonderful commentary are brilliant. I wish you were still home so I could borrow that skirt. I miss you but love tracking you on this great adventure.

Can you do a post which has tips for shopping and finding cute vintage items on ebay? That would be awesome :)

I recently started a blog on jewelry and came across these pictures. Your accessories are great, especially the earrings and headband. The materials twisted for the headband looks awesome in the messy up-do and the earrings stand out without your hair blocking them. The necklace is also a great feature because it matches the earrings but isn't too chunky or overwhelming for the outfit.

Thanks! What is your blog address? Would love to check it out!

Nice style ! I really like the black shirt. You can wear this shirt with almost any kind of clothe, like here with this plaid skirt.
