A ray of sunshine

Winter here in the Pacific Northwest USA is very dreary! It's cold, gray and wet a LOT of the time. To avoid myself having a real winter depression, I always try to dress in brgither colour OR better yet, a bright yellow handbag!
I love the colour Moutard (mustard) in Balenciaga. When the colour first came out in 2011 I immediately fell in love with it and started my search. I finally found this beauty on Bonanza (like Ebay but more user friendly I thought).

These pictures are taken near the 23rd area in Portland. This area is filled with independent small boutiques. You can find vintage clothings, shoes,jewelleries and lots of small eateries here. I found this vintage jewlery shop that has beautiful stuff from the 1930's! I will ask them if I can take pictures next time!! (I was fixiated on this GORGEOUS vintage blue sapphire ring from 1931!)

I am wearing
SWORD black leather jacket from Shopbop
Faux fur vest from overseas
Jeans are by Something
Scarf is a gift from mum
Earrings are from a little boutique near Lake Oswego
Sunnies are Lindberg (a Danish line)
Booties are DV by Dolce Vita from Endless
Bag is Balenciaga Velo in the colour Moutard (2011 S/S)

Have a great weekend you guys :)
