red & birds

I've indulged myself with a new dress (red dresses are always appealing to me!), after some months of no purchases. It was not any challenge involved, just a decision to make my wardrobe more accurate and more fabulous. So I've been wearing my favorite pieces a lot and letting go some other not-so-fabulous clothes. I've been more interested in purging my closet than in adding new pieces to it!
Anyway I'm frequenting some second hand and charity shops, and discovering some interesting local retailers, so I'm not going to stay without buying clothes for a long time!, and I have some sewing projects too!
And I'm taking the opportunity to join 52-pick-me-up: Yellow at Spy Girl, with my usual yellow cardigan!

Me he dado el capricho de un nuevo vestido (rojo, los vestidos rojos son irresistibles!), después de unos meses sin hacer ninguna compra. No es que haya sido un reto, simplemente responde a la decisión de que mi guardarropa sea algo más ajustado y más fabuloso también. Así que he estado poniéndome mucho algunas de mis prendas favoritas, y deshaciéndome de algunas menos fabulosas. En general, me he estado interesando más en hacer una limpieza de armarios que en adquirir nada nuevo.
De todos modos, estoy frecuentando unas cuantas tiendas de segunda mano y de caridad, y algunas tiendas locales muy interesantes, así que tampoco es que piense seguir sin comprar ropa para siempre. Y además, tengo algunos proyectos de costura!
Y aprovecho la oportunidad de unirme a 52-pick-me-up: Yellow at Spy Girl con mi chaqueta amarilla habitual.

- cardigan, La Redoute / chaqueta punto
- striped cardi, Adolfo Domínguez (a present) / chaquetita de rayas, un regalo

- old bag, from my mom's wardrobe / bolso antigüito, del armario de mamá

I've had a little accident, and sprained my ankle, just two days before Mr.A.'s surgery. Simply Perfect!
