floral winter dress

Some weeks ago, we had a retail fair, where local retailers sell out their winter stocks to make room for spring stuff. It's a big fair in a central plaza in the centre of the city, with lots of stalls selling clothes, furniture or hardware. I'm not a huge fan of these kind of celebration of consumerism, because I don't like that concept of throwing away everything every new season, it looks like a hamster in a wheel. But, on the other hand, I like to support local retailers, and fairs are such a fun event!
Anyway, I bought this dress, because those floral-folk motives and colors caught my eye, and I even didn't try it on!
I've been very lucky in my purchases last weeks, after several months of not buying anything!.

Hace unas semanas, tuvimos una feria de stock en la ciudad, donde los comerciantes locales venden sus sobrantes de la temporada invernal, para hacer sitio para las novedades de primavera. Es una feria bastante grande, en una plaza del centro de la ciudad, con muchos puestos vendiendo ropa, muebles, menaje. No soy muy partidaria de este tipo de celebración del consumismo, porque no me gusta esa idea de tener que deshacerse de todo con cada nueva temporada y vuelta a empezar, parece la vida de un hámster en una rueda. Pero, por otro lado, me gusta el comercio local, y además las ferias son algo que me divierte mucho.
De todos modos, me compré este vestido, porque me atrajo enseguida el estampado floral-folk, y me lo llevé sin probármelo ni nada!.
He tenido mucha suerte estas últimas semanas con mis compras, después de pasarme meses sin comprar nada!.

  1. Your mum's lumber room sounds like a treasure trove!

    Wonderful coats and the dress is beautiful. What a lovely pattern and such beautiful colours. I love your collection of Mary Janes and contrasting tights.

    The bag with the birds (parrots?) is fabulous.

    Wonderful bijouterie as always!
