Another day, another treasure unearthed from a box. I have had this skirt since my 16th birthday and is one of those pieces that feels comfortable, whatever the occasion. It has been to Italy with me, various family meals, university and now work. It is definitely one of those pieces that I would never get rid of as it just holds so many memories! The shape and style always remind me of the dresses that flamenco dancers (or at least the ones in films) wear.

This top is another treasure, I bought it from Primark when I was doing my internship with the Civil Service, it is scary to think that that was 2 (!) years ago, doesn't time fly?! It has just the right amount of detailing in the form of a slight peplum hem and 2 little bows on the front and the black helps to tone down the more colourful aspects of my wardrobe!
Unfortunately I am not blessed with Mediterranean colouring, despite my name so I played up my
ghostly white face porcelain skin with red lipstick and some smudgy black eyeliner.
Beautiful embroidery and colours, I dread to think how much work went into sewing all of this as it is beautifully finished!
What has taken you through big changes? Which clothes hold the most memories for you?
