*broken record*: sales sales & more sales

If you think I am made of stone, think otherwise because I couldn't leave the sales for one bikini. Matches had an awesome deal on a Athena Procopiou, a kaftan & scarfwear designer I have been lusting about since seeing a kaftan being worn on Aimee's Songs of Style. My kaftan is totally different in kaleidoscope colours & without tassles, but still love to wear these with some boyfriends & jeans, or a neutral outfit.

I'm weird about sales and often buy something that I will need in (hopefully) half a year time: I buy sweaters, mitts etc. This Lily & Lionel scarf is thin enough to be transseasonal or that perfect evening scarf. It even works as a sarong or perhaps a replacement of a towel on the beach. I love it's design of the city Portia on it and corally peach hues often bring warmth to any outfit.

I think I've been bringing my colourful (blue/white) Diane von Furstenberg dress on every travel-event ever so I guess it was time to bring in another item of this designer. Weirdly for a fashionwoman I do not go for LBD often: black isn't the best option for my complexion. But I noticed that a little black dress is supereasy on some occasions, or, when in doubt! And I can always wear colourful or sparkly accessories to bring in that extra pop of colour...
