crochet & colorful

We have had some sunny yet chilly days, with frosty mornings and a cold breeze even in the sunny midday. So I've been enjoying the sunshine and wearing a colorful maxi dress under my (boring) puffer coat!
This dress was purchased last year at eBay with two other dresses and a top in a combined postage. It was a lucky find, as everything fitted me (the top needed minor adjustments) and was totally my style. This is one of the reasons I've always liked eBay, because I can look for whatever I want in whatever color, In My Size!. So I browse only what I'm interested in. However, it lacks the adventurous feeling of rummaging in a charity shop or finding a second hand shop that I didn't know about.
On this same note, I've payed some visits to the local Animal Welfare Association's charity market which has been open the whole month. My friend M. and I made some purchases in the bijouterie stall. Not that we need more bijouterie, but who can resists those shiny trinkets!

Hemos tenido unos días soleados y fríos, con mañanas de escarcha y un vientecillo fresco incluso al mediodía en el sol. Así que he estado disfrutando de estos momentos de luz y llevando un vestido largo con mucho colorido debajo de mi (aburrido) abrigo acolchado.
Este vestido lo compré el año pasado en eBay, junto con otros dos vestidos y una blusita en un paquete combinado. Fue un encuentro afortunado, porque todo me valía (el top necesitó un pequeño ajuste) y era de mi estilo. Esta es una de las razones por las que me gusta eBay, porque puedes buscar lo que quieras, en el color que quieras y en Tu Talla!. Así que buscas sólo en lo que te interesa. Sin embargo, le falta el sentido de aventura de las búsquedas en las tiendas solidarias o el encontrar una tienda de segunda mano que no conocías!
Hablando de esto mismo, he visitado varias veces el mercadillo de la Protectora de Animales local, que ha estado abierto el mes entero. Mi amiga M. y yo hemos hecho unas cuantas compras de bisutería. No es que nos haga falta, pero quién se puede resistir a todas esas cositas brillantes!?

  3. What a find that maxi dress was, and I love how you "winterized" it with the blue polo neck and hot pink crochet cardie, as well as the reversed colourway, with the hot pink polo neck and blue cardie! The Frida Kahlo brooch is divine too! I wish more people embraced colour in Winter. It would make it so much bearable. Besos xxx
