Happy Me-Day

Could not wait to wear my beret and would not bother much if it does not match with my outfit for today. I think the beret is ok and I am planning to make few more in different colours. Hope I could find fleece in maroon, cobalt blue, mustard yellow to name a few colours that I like. Otherwise I have to try to use other materials.

Today is my birthday but I prefer to call it as me-day because I can truly pamper and treat myself. Yes, today is all about me. I know I sound selfish but it is only once year to celebrate me-day without feeling guilty. Guess how I treated myself? Buying vintage clothes, of course! So for the remaining days until pay day, I have to ikat perut or on a shoestring budget on meals and all.

The look:
Vintage dress from flea market
Thrifted belt
Thrifted bag
Handmade beret
Flat oxford shoes

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. Continue to pray for things to get better soon in Japan. Donate to help if possible.
