so i am starting to think that wearing long skirts in the winter isn't the best idea in the world. due to the fact that leggings (or tights) under the long skirts are required, resulting in the drape of the long skirt being interfered with by movement -- like walking. unless, of course, the long skirts one is wearing are fully lined. none of the long skirts that i have are fully lined. (i know what you are thinking: half or full slips. but those have a ton of problems on their own -- in my humble opinion.) so i am starting to think i should wear more and more (or, perhaps, nothing but) "keep it streamlined on the bottom" outfits. like the outfit in my last post.
i am wearing the alpen top, the modena jacket, the 3d skirt and the long tight pant by kaliyana (all a/w helsinki collection). my boots are the rectangle boot (closed collection) by trippen.

no, this isn't a case of deja vu (i am referring here to the title of the post). these are my other new trippen boots. worn with what is probably the most minimalist kaliyana outfit that i have worn in a while (maybe since summer?).
i am wearing the alpen top (a/w helsinki collection) and the l/s honolulu dress (a/w 2013) by kaliyana. my boots are the rider boot (closed collection) by trippen.

here there are: one of the two new pairs of trippens that i succumbed to a little while ago. this pair has the new sole that i am testing out. so far i can say this about this new collection: so light. i can barely feel them on my feet. the fit is smaller than the other collections that i wear (the closed, box and happy collections), so i had to size up (one whole size). (fortunately, larger numbers don't bother me. my priority is good fit. the size is just a number.)
i am wearing the alpen top (a/w helsinki collection), the pelican top (a/w 2013), the sarouel pant (s/s corfu collection) and the honolulu skirt (a/w 2013) by kaliyana. my boots are the force boot (splitt collection) by trippen.

this is one of my favourite retail times of the year: post winter holidays sales time. this year, unlike some past years, i am just looking. why? because i only want more of what i am wearing here: the label that i have come to love so much that i don't want to wear anything else. but looking at other clothes is still as much fun now that i am not buying them as it was when i was buying them. i like to know what is out there.
i am wearing the outside shirt (s/s barcelona collection), the forever jacket (a/w helsinki collection), the 3d skirt (a/w 2013) and the tight pant (s/s sorrento collection) by kaliyana. my boots are the rectangle boot (closed collection) by trippen. my necklace is by k'ien.
