treasure hunt

Vintage top and belt, Minnentonka flats, Lithuanian Folk Dancing skirt, Mom's necklace and brooch, Ray Ban Wayfarers, Michael Kors watch.


















One of my favourite things is to search through the closets in my house and unearth new treasures (in the form of clothes of course). It's always incredibly satisfying to find something that I had completely forgotten about or that I never knew existed. This skirt is one of those forgotten treasures. This used to belong to my very first Lithuanian Folk Dancing costume, therefore, unlike the new one I wore when I got older, the material of this skirt is much lighter. I love the rather ethnic effect it adds to my outfit. It's such a wonderful feeling to wear something everyday, that I used to only wear once or twice a year.

Ah, I know exactly what you mean about rediscovering items of clothing - like a sudden trove of treasure. And I love that this skirt has its own story as part of a folk dancing costume. Oh - and your brooch: So sweet. is it vintage?
