The Perfect Match

One of the greatest things about extended family is the time-old tradition in our household of sharing hand-me-downs, and borrowing pieces. I tend to feel that I truly benefit from this arrangement more than they do because I end up being able to shop from many closets while it’s more difficult for my family to shop from mine, given that I can’t bring my entire wardrobe home with me to Toronto! Some of the guilt is beginning to creep in! But, not enough to not wear this gorgeous yellow canary top- borrowed from my sister to be returned upon request. I loved the detailing on the shoulder and it was a perfect combination for this houndstooth skirt that has been silently waiting for its perfect match! There are some pieces you just have to hang on to and then there are others waiting in someone else's closet.
What I am Wearing:
Skirt: Zara
Blouse: Borrowed (Sis) - No Label
Shoes: Ralph Lauren
Jewellery: Watch - COACH
Necklace: COACH
Ring: COACH 
Bracelet: Gifted

  4. It threw me for a loop when the date of the post was Sept 13, felt like I had time travelled to the future! :D Woot woot houndtooth! I had a very similar skirt that I wore to death and then swapped with a friend-such a fab pattern! I miss 'borrowing' (aka never returning) clothes from my sis!

    Hot mama! Check out that figure! No one in my family is my size!!! It sucks so bad. I wish I could swap with someone. Oh well, just me myself and my closet.
