Custo Barcelona, Will You Be My Valentine?

I cannot even convey to my readers how much I am enjoying blogging. I love it 10x more than I ever imagined I would. Therefore, I wanted to share with my glorious followers, readers, and commenters one of my short-term goals concerning my blog- to have at least 50 followers by the end of June! I believe I have the skills and resources to reach my goal, but I need your help! Tell your friends! Follow! Comment! Etc. Reading your wonderful comments and checking my followers is one of my favorite things to do! I couldn't do it without you guys!

This is what I wore today out to lunch for Valentine's Day. I am wearing a vintage trench coat that I picked up at a second-hand shop when I was out of town a while back. It's velvet, and it had a tie belt that came with it, which I unfortunately lost. So today, being the problem-solver that I am, I decided to fix the crises. I strung a piece black satin ribbon through the belt-loops and tied it in a bow. TADA- problem solved! I really like how tying a bow in the back gives this coat a lovely shape and opens it up more to reveal my colorful outfit. I posted a detail of the bow as well. I paired it with on of my favorite outfit combos- Custo Barcelona tee and ombre skirt. I just recently discovered my love of Custo Barcelona, and I cannot believe all of my well-designed Custo tees have just been sitting in the dark, dimly lit, abyss of my closet all this time. In addition, I have pictures of me and my endearing little kitty-cat, Dudley. He's quite photogenic. I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!
