why don't you break my heart one more time, just for good luck

 Dress - 2nd hand/Nanso/Diy
Leather jacket - Auntie's old
Belt - Primark
Shoes - New look
Backpack&Padding - Amazon

I've come to realise that during the past year or so I've accumulated quite a few things that I've been meaning to show and share with you, but haven't. I'll have to try and change that! So here's two things that I've been wearing a lot since I got them. The dress is something I got from a friend of my mum's. You probably haven't heard of a Finnish brand named Nanso, but they often do crazy patterns and use good quality fabric, which is evident from the dress, too. It's just something really easy to throw on, I usually don't even add a belt, and I really like it. It was originally a shirt, but to make it more wearable for myself I diy'd it a little. I've sewn the slits from the sides away as well as added and changed the buttons. Such simple little things, but they still make a great change as before I did them I never wore this.

While the dress was something that was really nice to receive (my mum's friends are the actual best), the backpack is something I needed to get. 1) Because I didn't have anything to carry my camera in and 2) because my back has been so bad that I needed a backpack instead of carrying a bag on my arm or over my shoulder. Clearly I'm getting old and practical. I considered buying a proper camera backpack, but they're so pricey (and I am so poor) that I figured I'd get this and the padding so that I can remove it and use with other bags if I want/need to. The seller calls it pink, but I'd say it's more magenta/aniline, or am I colour blind? In any case I really like the colour with the leather, and kind of look forward to it looking more tattered after many adventures. This is basically my go to bag now, especially if I'm going on a day trip out of town or just spending the day out my house. And although my camera does take up about half the space inside, it's still roomy enough for me to have other essential (and not so essential) things with me.
