I won a giveaway! And wore it to work.

By dusanabotswana On December 23rd, 2011

Today I spent the majority of my day driving, but it was quite worth it. I was coming back from seeing one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the US, which also happens to be in Arizona (I’ll let you guess, and expect a post coming up :). I’ve also been speaking pretty much non-stop Spanish for the past two days, and Jonny and I have gotten to catch up with our super-awesome friend from Spain who we hadn’t seen in over a year, so no complaints here!

Please pardon the lack of originality of these pictures, I didn’t have time for more interesting things, but still wanted to show you an outfit I wore to work this week: my “The Oaxacan” top, which I know I said I’d try to wear in more original ways, and finally did here, but always resort back to high waisted skirts- but how about lets call it my signature look ok? ; ) This time though, I’ve got a new skirt in my collection, with an adorable bow to boot, from Shabby Apple (and a seriously amazing fit-a high-waisted skirt that doesn’t smash my hips for once!)!. The best part is I won it on a giveaway on Sappy Apple! (And of course I love the pop of color my woven bracelet ads, but you know I’m partial to them all : ).





Outfit details: coat- thrifted ($4); lace top- thrifted ($3); skirt- Shabby Apple, won via Sappy Apple; purse- thrifted Etinee Agner ($4), bracelet- handmade in Chiapas; bootie heels- Target sales last year; top- Handmade in Oaxaca.

If you celebrate Christmas, hope you’re getting excited to spend it with family and loved ones (and not stressing out about last-minute gifts to buy/wrap still, that’s really not the important part, remember… unless of course you wanted to check out my Holiday Special and shop for a cause : ). Enjoy this special time with the special people in your lives friends!

final thx

    This post made me realize how original your style is Dusauna! All in all i really like the outfit : ) Glad you’re having fun catching up with your friend and speaking Spanish yet once again. Thank you for reminding me to not get so caught up in the present giving aspect of Christmas. Right now I’m watching The Sound of Music with my family- pretty good times lol She’s teaching the children how to sing right now, “doe ray me!” I wonder if Johny has seen that movie…? Merry X-Mas!

    This outfit is adorable!

    As for the comment on the 330 Collective about picnik vs photoshop…well, that’s a no brainer. PHOTOSHOP! Picnik is for beginners who truly don’t know photoshop or how to edit. The vintage effects are really nice for less than great photography, but those can also be done in photoshop. I think photoshop is easier and faster and higher quality.

    ANYWAYS, I hope you had a merry little Christmas.
