Totally jealous that you are still enjoying coat weather! I'm loving the purple, and that frock is to die for. I'm down with the "more is more" adage too - more is MOST DEFINITELY more!

Admiring the shoes, the bags, the new cameo!

Beeauuuutiful embroidered purse and the pink shoes! You seamstresses are very lucky to be able to make beautiful things from great vintage fabrics. One of these days I may be buying a sewing machine after all.
Happy Spring Lady Bush!

Melanie said...

You always manage to find such wonderful things, I see nothing of this level of incredibleness when I'm out and about and when I do it has a silly price tag on it.

Mrs. D said...

Lol lady bush. I'll have to add that to my vocab. Love the outfit. You certainly do look ready for spring. We're starting to get ready for fall here.

Loving all these lovely shades of pinks and purples, you actually make me look forward to autumn with your outfits Helga, though I know it's springtime for you. Only thing is I'll be lusting after your summer outfits when it's winter here, oh no! xx

Pattern-mixing taken to a new level: absolutely brilliant! The color of the coat is luscious. I've been craving something in that shade. You look divine.
