Bullet cuff- East End Art Gallery
Shoes- Sofft (I know...totally grandma)
After seeing Coco Avant Chanel not too long ago, I've been seeing some version of her marinière striped top everywhere I look. It's a bit preppier than I normally go, so I paired it with this vintage wrap skirt I found last summer.
When I was 11 years old my family moved to the Philippines and lived in Cagayan for almost a year. I had a skirt very similar to this that I think we found at a little gift shop. I have a lot of fond memories of that time and I always think of those days when I wear this...riding horses on my uncle's farm, rollerskating in Cagayan, and of course the homemade paper dolls!
My cousin Gigie and I made little paper dolls from cardstock and then would find inspiration from magazines, cartoons, and strangely enough, an episode or two of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous"...what?? --and then put together little paper outfits.
It's funny how much more fun life can be when your resources are limited, isn't it?
