Electric blue top

Hi. The first announcement I want to make, I bought myself a watch! I can finally keep track of time and (hopefully) I'll never be late for my meeting with you guys ever again. 
 It's a pocket watch, it has an antique look and I love it. You should see how fast I reply now when someone asks me "What time is it ?". I can't stop staring at it, it's like I've been hypnotized by it. 

Speaking of hypnotizing techniques, I am thinking about swinging my watch in front of the salesperson's eyes when I am shopping and convince him that my item is on sale. It's worth a try, right?

The second announcement, I went a little crazy with the pleated skirts this season. Just last week I bought three of them. 
I went to a flea market, one thing led to another and before I knew it, my wrists were hurting from carrying shopping bags.

Anyway, today's outfit consists of a vintage, purple, pleated skirt, an electric blue top from a Romanian brand called Lashez and no name, nude multi-strapped sandals.

Great pleated skirt! Is it difficult to iron or do you just send it out for dry cleaning?

hi; new here and I wanted to say I like how you model and it's inspired me, esp how you hold your skirt out. I never thought to do that and I have many wacky-prints in my wardrobe so it would work nicely. great hair, too.
