COLOR ME: CAMEL-BLACK AND GREEN
CASHMERE COAT: Vintage, options Here, Here and Here/ TURTLENECK SWEATER: Calypso St. Barth, similar Here, Here and Here/ BAG: Toino Abel Here, Here and Here/ JEANS: Here more options Here and Here/ SHOES: Marni Here, different options Here, Here and Here/ SUNGLASSES: Ralph Lauren, similar style Here/
Right before the snow storm hit the state, we had a very warm 60-degree day, a good reason to spend the day in Philadelphia. I dressed easy and casual in camel, black, with pops of green here and there. I do love the green color on everything, especially a dark green shade as my Marni shoes. Now, I added to my "green things to love collection" this Portuguese handmade reed and willow basket bag from incredibly talented Toino Abel.
I love so many aspects about this bag: the traditional motifs, the shape/size proportions, the colors, and last but not least the well-made craftsmanship.
It is nice finding different and qualitative pieces like this basket and it is my pleasure to support artist and artisans from around the world, by bringing them to your attention (I need to mention that this is not a sponsored post) is just that I decided to do that more often (even though I started for a while), I will be more open about this aspect.
We all need to make a difference & to different ourselves from the crowd...

True about making a difference. Sometimes we can comfortable and complacent. I’m actually talking about myself. I definitely need a change.

Once again, you add that personal touch that makes this look an evidence, but with things we (well, most of the people) would not have mix naturally. The green pop, that craft bag… perfect.Log in to Reply
And this is good to know that someone into fashion and blogging like you, still find interesting to make the difference by presenting and supporting an alternative to luxury brands.

Thank you for observing all the details of this outfit (details that I particularly love).
This idea of supporting artist and artisans (small businesses in general) I have it from… long before I had this blog :) I am myself an artist (freelance artist) and I really know all the struggle that an artist deal with in order to “be seen. If I have a small tool (this blog) to make a difference and to help, I want to do it even if it’s for a small audience. Also their work is really great at affordable prices. Why not wearing something different and qualitative and support in the same time a good cause?
Thank you for your message and have a wonderful week!
