These boots are made for walking...

...and that's just what they did! Where? In lovely Madrid :)

I'm still day dreaming about our romantic escapade to one of my top favorite cities so far...and I'm just wondering how great it must be in spring, when it was totally adorable in the chilly winter!

I chose to wear this casual, yet sexy outfit for a day meant for walking around  a lot, probably the most, since it was the first day there and these lovely Progetto boots did their best to ensure a comfy day for my feet, despite the marathon sightseeing.

The dress I'm wearing is another special item, close to my heart and part of my "vintage crown jewels", a navy blue jersey mini, that my mom used to wear in the 80s. I totally love jersey and it's one of the many reasons why the fashion world should be so grateful to Chanel, who first dared to use it in couture.

├ętnico de madrid ...

Hola a todos!

Back from our 8th anniversary trip to Madrid, a city I totally, completely adore!!! Viva Madrid!
The people, the arcitecture, the food, the bars...the shops and the incredible sales...the perfect combination altogether for Madrid to make it to my Top 3 of favorite european destinations!

On one of the lovely days spent there, I wore this ethnic touch outfit, with a very cute story behind it.

Vest: Knitted by my all started with two kitchen towels I found in a vintage shop for 30 cents each, with amazing coral colored flowers on it! I bought them in an instant because I had a vision :) and I knew I would cut them out and apply them to something...then after my immagination had processed all options, I thought it would have to be a vest in raspberry pink! I searched for wool in the envisioned color, but it was nowhere to be found...Then...when I was about to give up the raspberry dream, my mom found an old sweater in the perfect color, waiting quietly in a bag to be given away. She unknit it and used the thread to produce this lovely vest! The flowers were applied and there was my vision, becoming reality :) The End

Maxi Dress: Vintage (bought it on my first trip to Vienna about 12 years ago :)
Sweater: H&M
Boots: BB Up
Faux Fur Collar: H&M
