Today's attire

Silent Summer

It’s hard not to be influenced by your surroundings. After years and years of living in urban settings, the country life is getting to me, softening me up… maybe? Well, my financial situation has certainly changed, that’s for sure… at the moment, I can’t really afford to be buying up all the latest things in the boutiques, so it’s forcing me to be more creative with what I have. Wearing a belt as a top and a skirt (I never wear) as a dress, and another belt as a headband, I put together an outfit inspired by the silent film stars Liebemarlene has a way of digging up… how does she do it? I don’t know, but as long as they keep coming….

PS, I just got a new remote controller for my camera! It makes things soooo much easier.

  1. Who knew belts were so multi-purpose. I’d be slightly afraid of falling out or flashing someone, but it looks like you tied it tight enough to avoid any embarrassing moments. I like that skirt as a dress, its very light and summery. Actually the entire outfit is fantastic, and I’m going to need to find more pliable belts!

  4. Isn’t it funny how creative one can get, whether it be in style or life, with little money. You look a thousand times better than most deep pocket fashionistas darling.

  11. You really do look like you came straight out of a silent movie! I honestly don’t think I would have noticed any of the repurposing if you hadn’t mentioned. Just lovely.

  15. So beautiful!!! It’s funny because as obsessed as I am with the silent film stars I haven’t really tried to make up an outfit inspired by them yet . . . Yours is so perfect. And I might steal the hairstyle idea from you too. :)
