I rarely buy flowers for myself, even though I love having them around the house, but I will buy them for others because it seems less indulgent somehow … and then I will take advantage of the opportunity, and Instagram the heck out of them. I mean, this bouquet was too pretty to NOT do it. It also matched my outfit quite nicely, if I say so myself. Minus the bag, I’m wearing head to toe thrift here. I still love this mustard yellow jacket, and the somewhat awkward cropped length works with this dress, which has its own slightly awkward proportions. Neither is something I would have bought at retail prices, but they’re fun to play with … for now.
The bag is vintage (and consigned) and I go back and forth on whether it’s a forever kind of bag or not. It’s a classic, and it’s cool to own a small piece of a fashion history, but on the other hand, I rarely use it. If I were to sell it, I could buy quite a few other bags with the money … but then my closet would probably never see another Chanel again. Bag collector dilemmas, y’all.
