dress: Mão Esquerda | sneakers: Vans | denim jacket: vintage
Each time I go to Porto I have to visit this store: Mão Esquerda. It’s a vintage store that sells vintage and second hand clothes and accessories. The owner and the shop assistant are really amazing and lovely people (no words!).
Some dresses and kimonos from the store came from Japan, the one that I’m wearing is one of them. Since I saw it I fell in love with it. The details on the back and front (near the buttons). The long sleeves with balloon shape (you can’t see it because it was really hot on this day and I had to push up the sleeves). And the length of the skirt. I liked all these details but I confess that I had some doubts about the color. It’s a kind of ‘light-old-pink’. This color is difficult to combine with some tones of skin, and my skin is one of the kind. But I’m glad that I bought it because I really like how it fits on me, even with my light skin ton. What do you think? Do you guys like this dress?
Cada vez que vou ao Porto tenho de visitar a Mão Esquerda. É uma loja vintage que vende roupa e acessórios vintage e em segunda mão. A dona e a assistente são pessoas super simpáticas e muito queridas mesmo!
Alguns dos vestidos e dos kimonos que a loja vende vieram do Japão. O vestido que estou a usar é um deles. Fiquei super encantada por ele quando o vi: os detalhes nas costas e na frente (perto do botões do decote), as suas mangas de balão (que não dá para perceber porque com o calor que estava tive de subir as mangas), e o comprimento da saia. Adorei todos estes detalhes mas confesso que tive algumas dúvidas relativamente à cor. Este rosa velho não favore todos os tons de pele e acho que o meu é um deles. No entanto, ainda bem que o comprei, gosto muito dele, da maneira como caí no corpo e mesmo com o meu tom de pele fica melhor do que aquilo que eu esperava. O que acham? Gostam do vestido?

Another pair of vintage trousers. Yes, from my mom. I am loving these pants because, first, they are extremely comfortable and they have an original pattern with some autumn colors. Second, they are kind of kick flare pants. I guess I already said goodbye to the skinny ones. Kick flare, straight, mom jeans and wide pants are now my favorite styles. They are more fun and way more comfortable than skinny. What do you think about this outfit?
Outro par de calças vintage. Sim, da minha mãe. Estou a adorar estas calças porque, primeiro são super confortáveis e têm um padrão original com cores de outono. Segundo, porque são uma especie de kick flare. Acho que já disse mesmo adeus às calças skinny. Kick flare, retas, mom jeans e calças largas são agora as minhas favoritas. São mais divertidas e muito mais confortáveis que as skinny. O que acham deste outfit?

‘Narnia’ it’s the name that I (and a friend of mine) call to my grandmother’s wardrobe. She is a dressmaker, and since I remember, she makes clothes for her clients, for my mom, my sister and me since we were little. In her wardrobe, besides her clothes, are a lot of clothes that she did to my mom. Each time that I open it, I found a new piece, a piece that calls my attention, a piece that I already imagine myself wearing an outfit with it. Or maybe, every time I open the wardrobe, I simply saw that same piece in a different way. It is really exciting found a “new” world in this wardrobe, a “new” piece with a lot of years above it, a vintage piece that I add to my closet. I am wearing a white silk shirt from Narnia. I liked this shirt for the flowing and wide cut, the collar and the knot buttons. I already showed other pieces here and here. I have a huge esteem and love for this wardrobe. And yes, it has been feeding my crush for vintage clothes. Hope you like the outfit.
