Give Me Mate and A Bombilla, and I Will Get Through Anything

What The Water Gave Me: Florence + The Machine





I haven’t done a Weekly Outfit in a very long time, in part because I was traveling and also because I got all activist and started writing about Occupy Wall Street. Staying true to my Consignment-Only Fashion roots and hand-picking elements from several trips this year, here is my outfit today. My Mate (pronounced mah-tay) from Ushuaia, the furthest-South city in the world, and my handmade earrings are the perfect accessories.

Jacket: Sisley (Italy in 2009)
Scarf: Handmade as a gift from Puerto Natales, Chile 
Orange shawl-thinger: Consignment (Buffalo Exchange Boulder)
Black Dress: Consignment (Common Threads Boulder)
Jeans: H&M (GIFT) 
Ass-Kicking Boots: Consignment (Common Threads Boulder)
Earrings with Feathers: Homemade

  1. Love the stitching on the scarf. Looks like it’ll hold heat in well. On a side note, you look completely different without your glasses — wearing contact lenses, I assume, in these photos?

    1. Yep! I love being able to switch my look completely day to day. Honestly, the biggest compliment to me is when someone doesn’t recognize me!
