Slits

Wearing: Friend Of Mine dress, Zara coat and heels, Marcs clutch and friends vintage heirloom ring.

It feels that all I ever do is stock up on adaptable, shell tops or dresses with original quirks. This bright red smock was transformed thanks to the sleek and sly cut out elbow slits. Definitely not the most practical in winter, but small risks are necessary not only for fun but as I am struggling with stretching the contents of my light luggage this week. 

The Manhattan Vintage Fair is on this weekend and I cannot wait for the overdue rummage. If anyone has any more shopping recommendations for New York I would genuinely appreciate it, as my ventures haven't been as successful as I'd otherwise hoped for (sold nearly my entire wardrobe before I left Sydney). If you know of any up and coming labels in the city, intimate boutiques or even 'garage' sales please let me know! 

And another reminder to please share and vote daily for Tuula as 'Newcomer of the Year' in the Bloglovin' Awards here... thank you! :)
