corner view: style




i used to wear a lot of vintage clothes -- skirts and dresses and coats, scarves and sunglasses. very big sunglasses, the bigger the better. but somehow it feels like i've lost my knack a bit. these days it's mostly jeans and woolly jumpers. i hope i'll find the time again when spring comes to look for a few new vintage favourites.

that being said, what makes me happy and keeps me warm this winter is a vintage coat with a white collar that i bought online last year. i like to wear it with a russian scarf i've had for years. when i took these photos, my cat was not too impressed that my attention was not on her, so she walked into the picture. good idea, as it turns out.

for more corner views, take a look at jane's spain daily.
