la fille et ses mères obi

I commented on someone's blog a few days ago saying how sad it was that i can't fit into any of my mother's intensive shoe collection anymore, and that it has really put me off rifling through her wardrobe, as i thought nothing else in her wardrobe could satisfy my fashion needs. Alas, how wrong I could be as sitting under her bed (along with my scarf... grr) was this obi belt:

belt, mum's from lowie

Gorgeous, non? Its quilted, black and leather and pretty much whats put a bounce in my step this morning. And it looks great over pretty much everything in my wardrobe (yes, i am sad enough to spend a whole morning trying it over everything...).

Oh, i feel so Gucci...
Gucci s/s rtw 09 style.com

dress topshop, belt mums from lowie, tights both from primark, shoes dp.
As from today, it has been permenantly re-located into my wardrobe. Mum doesn't know yet.. but im hoping she won't mind *fingers crossed!*.
Have a good new years everyone,

oh and santa, i know its not christmas anymore, but can i have a new camera pretty please? thanks.

Hey Molly!

I don't know what's wrong with me. Maybe I need to slap myself? I mean, the Marnis do rock, but are also the first pair of shoes that have disappointed me in 'real life' lol.

Btw, you look adorable and we'd be glad to swap links. Adding you to our blog role now.

haha glad you liked my little quote there :) it's true though! but man i am ageing fast!!!! arggg
i guess coffee, alcohol and cigarettes aren't a good idea either? whoooooooops. well my other quote is "die young, die pretty" so i guess that sums me up a bit.

love your blog btw! your belt rocks and i love your style! very hot!

Happy New Years!!! :) xxx LM
