dusty duster & sundress

It's still chilly, however I'm entering in a spring mood, so decided to wear a trench (instead of usual puff coats!). This kind of duster has been in my wardrobe for some years, and I recently tried to overdye it to refresh its color which was looking particularly dusty. Not my most successful dye job, as it looks almost the same. Anyway, it's a useful trench/duster in a purple shade, and it was time to wear it once more.
Obviously, I picked a warm jacket (tweed!), because it was cold. Then I picked a sundress, because I'm not really sensible and liked the matching colors. I believe that any summer dress could be worn over a turtleneck and tights and become a winter dress, but it doesn't always work. I think that this sundress is going to wait until real spring and then I'll give it another try (probably).

Todavía hace frío, pero yo estoy entrando ya en el modo primavera, y decidí ponerme una gabardina, en vez de los habituales abrigos acolchados. Esta especie de guardapolvo ha estado en mi armario desde hace años, y hace poco intenté 'refrescar' el color que se había quedado desgastado, con tinte. Casi ni se nota, no ha sido precisamente un éxito. De todos modos, es un guardapolvo que sirve, en un tono morado que me puede ir bien, así que lo pienso llevar!
Claro está, me puse debajo una chaqueta abrigada, porque hacía frío. Y luego me puse un vestido de verano, de tirantes, porque no soy tan prudente, y porque me iban bien los colores. Tengo la idea de que cualquier vestido de verano puede llevarse en invierno, si te lo pones sobre un cuello vuelto y medias, pero esto no siempre es verdad. Creo que este vestido, concretamente, va a quedarse en la reserva hasta la primavera y entonces le daré otra oportunidad (quizás). Me refiero a la primavera de verdad!

Some pics from my walks through the city. I like old store signs, even when they've been vandalized.
Unas fotos de mis paseos por la ciudad. Me siguen gustando los carteles de antiguos negocios, incluso cuando están ya destrozados.

  2. Looking lovely in purples! I'm longing to get out my lighter coats as well. The duster's a great piece, and you have freshened up its colour at the very least. I love how you layered it over that Tweed jacket and your sun dress, and your tights are the most divine colour! Besos xxx

  4. Lady in purple! Take a bow. You look wonderful and what an amazing array of tones of purple and different textures. I love the dress and the tweed jacket and the beret. I wouldn't have thought about dyeing a coat but what a good idea should I have a faded coat...

    Hope your week is going well.

  9. I love all the patterns and tones of purple together - beautiful clash!! I think this dress looks lovely in this combination, but of course it might be just too cold for it still. Purple is Your color! And your city looks so beautiful. <3
