A Christmas gift for myself

Normally I wear vintage clothing that I find radomly in a Charity depot or at the flea market, if I have the rare fortune to visit one...
This is ecologically and a creative challenge for me to make an outfit with this finds.
I'm not interested in brands, I wear only, what I like and don't look at the label.
A single exception is the Swedish designer Gudrun Sjödén.
For many years, I collect all the catalogs and I look reverently again and again like wonderful books. - All this is so inspiring!
The truth is, that I can't buy these clothing, because I have only a very small budget.
But to my birthday I get every year a gift-coupon for 20 Euro from the label.
Last Monday I saw the coat that really appeals to me, is on sale and more than 60% cheaper. I could not resist and ordered it.
On Thursday the postman came with the package. I opened it and called only "Yeeahhh, thats it!"
Its really amazing and I will wear it to apple green and orange and to all the shades of red and to dark grey and black... - I have so many pieces in my closet, which fits well with it.
It is so colorful and a great pleasure for me and my Christmas present to myself.
I had not a good time the last few weeks (that's why I was not to last Share-in-Style-party) ... and I think that I have really earned this gift.

My cat is not quite in my opinion, she have to get used to it ;-)

Merry Christmas to all :-)

  5. What a beautiful coat....perfect for you! I can just imagine the creative ways you will combine it with other clothing you have as you did in this photo shoot. I agree with you about Gudrun Sjodun's line of clothing. I just swoon over the magazine pages online and think of ways to duplicate the look with thrift store finds. Froeliche Weinachten to you dear Macha...may the new year bring you good health and prosperity!

  18. Gudrun Sjöden's got amazing clothes. Most of them are a bit too boho and way too expensive for me, but I always admire them on the catalog and also admire them on other people who can sport them really nicely. That style seems to suit you so very well.
    Merry Christmas!

  20. Absolutely charming, and so brightening for this deep-cold before-sunrise day.

    Perfect colours and amazing contrasts of shades and hues. Simply lovely---even in the first few with the wall, I could tell you were high above the trees, with that air of height and soaring colour.


  21. Very special and wonderful chlotes.
    You are so beautiful in that colors.
    Thanks for sharing your posts for me.

    Hugs from Anne-Mari
