Getting ready for a rainy day – Preparada para um dia de chuva


The weather forecast for this week is a drastic temperature drop and rain; in spite of the sun peeking out in the morning, I chose my clothes accordingly, opting for navy blue cigarette pants, a pinstriped
blouse that I got a few months ago but didn't get to wear until now and a trench coat. Love the shape of this blouse with its draped neckline; it’s classy with a twist. Believe it or not the belt was handcrafted by me; I wanted a vintage Moschino belt without the outrageous price tag that usually comes with these second hand Moschino original belts (most of them aren't even in good condition for the price). The solution came to me by chance when I found an old Moschino vanity bag in pitiful state on sale for 20 Euros, yet with the original metal lettering in perfect state. I hit the buy button without thinking twice; all I needed to do next was finding a leather belt with the perfect width, and voila: vintage original gold plated Moschino letters on a belt! 
Wishing you all a wonderful day!

A previsão do tempo para esta semana é uma descida drástica da temperatura e chuva e apesar do sol espreitar de manhã escolhi a roupa de acordo com a previsão, optando por calças cigarrette em azul-marinho, uma blusa da mesma cor em risca-de-giz (já a tenho há meses mas só hoje estou a usá-la pela primeira vez), que tem um feitio muito original com o decote drapeado, e uma gabardina em tom areia. Acreditem ou não, o cinto foi feito por mim. Sempre quis um cinto vintage da Moschino, mas os preços destes cintos em segunda mão rondam as centenas de euros, e muitos deles nem sequer estão em bom estado. A solução apresentou-se por acaso quando descobri à venda no coisas.com uma bolsa de toilette Moschino original, em muito mau estado mas com as letras de metal impecáveis por apenas 20 euros. Comprei-a imediatamente e depois foi só achar um cinto de pele com a largura e espessura perfeita para enfiar as letras (têm passadeiras por trás, como as dos cintos!), e voilá! Letras douradas Moschino originais num cinto!
Desejo-vos a todos um ótimo dia!

  6. Tany darling we do share the same taste of fashion ;-) Would you believe it, that trench was one of my buys last Friday, lol. Cool no? I although bought shoes, we'll do the outfit tonite, anyway let's come to your outfit. You look divine darling. Absolutely gorgeous! Love everything. The Moshino belt is to die for! How clever of you. I wouldn't have thought of it. Thx for sharing the idea. Now I will be on the lookout myself. How's the little man? Doing better?
    Happy Monday darling
    kisses

    1. What can I say, great minds think alike! The trench is a great wardrobe piece and a steal with great price vs quality rate. It's a classic that will endure for many years in our wardrobes!
      Regarding the golden plated letters, they are exactly the same as the ones on the vintage belts, I've examined a vintage belt to be sure.
      Thank you so much for dropping by, darling!
