Elizabeth & James


package



elizabeth &james ivania
Today I wore it with a suit that belonged to my mother, everytime she sees it she tells me a story about it and that it's even older than me

Some time ago a friend of mine was telling me about how she always wins everything, and also how she thought that people shouldn't complain about never winning anything if they don't even bother to enter a competition. I kept quiet, it sounded so familliar, I knew I was one of those people! So when Sue from the Stiletto Effect left a comment on my blog about a competition with Chickdowntown, It was a great opportunity to change my adittude, and gues what!? I WON!! It's the perfect not so basic tee, thanks so much Su and Chickdowntown and The Stiletto Effect!!

You look unbelievable in that old suit and tee! Mothers (or even grandmothers) really love it when we wear their old clothes don't they? They get all sentimental and nostalgic. I guess I would be the same if I was passing my clothes onto my daughters!

Erika said...

I so love Elizabeth and James - but I love it much more when seeing it paired with that heavenly suit. That is absolutely sublime - I can't believe that's from your mother's closet. The pinstripes, the puffy sleeves...it looks runway ready! :)
