From The Rooftops I Remember There Was Snow

Dress: H&M $15, Blazer: Value Village: $8, Belt: Thrift $2, Stockings Ardenes $3, Boots: Spring $41

I would like to introduce everyone to my absolute favourite thrifted blazer. I had been searching for the perfect one with gold buttons and found this baby back in January. There is a kindof funny story about why i have never worn it. A few days after i bought the blazer i popped one front buttons much to my alarm. I always misplace things so i set it aside in a special drawer until i finally got around it sewing it back on. Well one day i got out the button, thread,needle and then set them on my bed so i could start. I can't remember why i had to leave but once i came back my thread and needle where right where i left them but the bloody button was absolutely no where to be found, i searched and searched but it was completely m.i.a. So finally after two months of not wearing the blazer i decided to bite the bullet and cut off the buttons on the pockets, sew them up and use one on the front. After finishing that and taking my outfit photos i was rummaging through my drawers to find something when i found an old winter hat and when i picked it up, out fell the infamous button. I have no idea how it got there but i am quite happy to finally have found it and already reattached the other two to the pockets!! I wore this outfit on Tuesday to the movies but just edited these photos today. I just got photoshop and am completely in love with it, not going to lie it is SO hard to stop playing around with the different settings. I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Oh no, snow! It finally all melted here in Chicago and I got the chance to wear a springy outfit.

Love that blazer and I'm the same way with buttons... I actually need to sew buttons on to 2 vintage coats at the moment, eep.
