Me and My Technicolor Dreamtights

I refuse to let go of summer. Seems so short lived. And now Winter is approaching, I refuse to let go of fall by embracing summer. I know, makes no sense.
But finally, there were some days where, although it was cold, it was not unbearably so.

Time to have some fun.

Photography always have an amazing way of turning mundane places into magical playgrounds. How simple and provincial does this photo look. The muted landscape is the perfect backdrop for my loud and colourful accessories.

After warming myself up in the car, I was brave enough to embrace what is to come next. Oh how I wish I lived somewhere that is always warm and sunny. But alas my face betrays me.

These tights were meant to be part of a Halloween costume. My friend never ended up wearing them for Halloween. She then graciously given them to me as I have an unhealthy obsession for tights. They pretty much have a monopoly on the real estate south of my waist.

I love these tights, they are so much fun! A dash of "The Spy Who Shagged Me" and a dash of "The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". It is almost as if I can perform magic in them.

Lace and Vintage Dior

The old fashioned brick walls has so much character. Witness to many events that have unfolded before them.

I was feeling nostalgic when I went down this alley. The perfect back drop to showcase my Vintage Christian Dior.

Vintage Christian Dior Purse

I found this beauty at Talize. My go-to thrift store.

She was just hung amongst all the other purses, unassuming.

I almost passed her up until the gleamer of the gold hardware caught my eye. $12.00 later, she was mine.

The straps can be detached to transform this darling into a clutch.
