a day for applique…


vintage butterfly skirt

I love the bright colors and playful prints of these vintage wrap skirts and couldn’t resist adding another one to my collection. I love Isabelle’s blog and bought this skirt and another top from her vintage Etsy shop.

Not only does she have great style, but reading her blog just confirms my suspicions that I would love Montreal, a city high on my list of “must-sees”. (I don’t really count the night I went clubbing there as a 20 year old living in upstate New York, even though it introduced me to my love of vinegar on french fries… But I digress…)

    I adore this outfit! It’s so cute the way your sunglasses, brooch and appliqué turn it into something really special. I love me a bit of appliqué… am about to start customising/brightening up some cheap clothes I bought!
