Fine Floral Gifts

Some of the best things in life are free, i.e. GIFTS!

I love receiving treats from friends and family, particularly hand-me-downs. I am a constant closet shopper and ask my family to "donate to my cause" as frequently as they wish to as I am on a no spending diet.

About a month ago, I was gifted with a BEAUTIFUL blouse from Kat  and was so excited to wear it. I love it when Those who read my blog are aware of my love for clothes accessories and trinkets. It's lovely to be on the receiving end of some many goodies.












What I am Wearing:
Blouse: Jones New York (Gifted from Kat)
Skirt: Vintage (belonged to my Auntie R 30 years ago!)
Hair Clips: Aldo

I am also joining the Everybody Everywear Challenge This Month - Florals!

  1. That's a great blouse- the colours are perfect on you! I love gifts too- my best friend bought me a pair of leopard print stilettos for my bday and I adore them! It's always better when they come from someone else (kind of like how food tastes better when someone else cooks it!)

  3. I just saw your tech dilemna- copy the embedded code from the EBEW website and then instead of pasting it into the normal part of your blog post, switch the format to 'edit html' and then paste the embedded code underneath all the written code. That should work- if you understand my tech mumbo jumbo that is! Let me know!

  29. That blouse is gorgeous- what a great gift :) I love that you manage to convince friends and family to donate to the cause that is your spending diet! How long have you been on that now... I'm considering doing one myself, but I'm not convinced I'd last very long and definitely need some willpower tips :)
