apart from a few pieces I got this winter for next summer, I've worn everything I have - except for one vintage black cocktail dress, round neckline and short sleeves. it's really nice, in a heavy yet supple fabric (viscose?) with a woven-in abstract pattern and irregularly scattered 'sparks' of gold thread. I just haven't had a good occasion to wear it... yet. it might stay in my closet until the fall though, it's not a very summery dress... but that's ok, I know I'll wear it eventually. what's been keeping you from wearing that jil blouse and sweater, softgrey? (hmmn, there's no way to write that sentence without it sounding like a scolding! I don't mean it like that!)

a pleated mini skirt with gorgeous floral prints (lemon, white, something like golden- who knows, I never see this skirt ), love at first sight, grabbed it, thought I'd wear it right away and turned out the skirt is way too short and gravity-defying, meaning it never falls, so it's like wearing a kite, no thanks.. maybe this summer I'll finally sell myself that cheap.

i know what you mean about flying kite skirts...
so tricky...
you want to wear something light and floaty during the hot summer months...
but, unless you feel like giving everyone a show, it's not really an option...
i used to have all sorts of tricks to try to keep my skirt down...


i still have a few dresses that will blow around unexpectedly from time to time...
even though they are not short or anything---just lightweight and airy...
as long as it's not a constant issue, i happily wear them ...
i have pretty quick reflexes if it happens and i don't think anyone's really getting a good look...
i don't know---i think it keeps life interesting...

I say a DIY trick once, you just sew a small heavy object (like a coin or something similar) inside on the edge of the skirt/dress. Never tried yet though.

Church's navy suede derby shoes.
I was really into them and when I finally bought them the feeling subsided, of course. Funnily it's something I can easily combine considering my wardrobe, but I never put them on in the end... each time I'm thinking - yeah, next time it'll be their turn... next time... NEXT TIME...
Still not considering selling them.

oh i still have an ann demeulemeester horsehair neck piece/belt from years ago(2000) that i got for a steal on ebay and have yet to wear. i also have a inverted sequin black wrap apron skirt that i got from last call many years ago while visiting a friend in austin. and that's mainly because i've never had any engagements worthy enough to don either. i still admire them though,waiting for a chance.

A beautiful grey wool, knee length brocade dress. It is simply to low-cut. Too much skin on display for winter, and the material is too hot for summer

My addiction to vintage designer wear is getting a bit too ridiculous :x
I got some cigarette pants from Gianfranco Ferré and a Moschino jacket that I never got the occasion to wear. A lot of Portuguese designer clothing too like Daniela Barros, Elisabeth Teixeira and Ricardo Preto. It's ridiculous because half of my closet is full of clothing that I don't wear, mostly expensive clothing.

a red, sleeveless Antipdodium dress with horizontal slits.

I also have a full length peach coloured ostrich feather massimo dutti skirt that I grabbed/ fell in love with at first sight.

(still waiting for an occasion to wear both!)
