Pimping the perfection

You would, quite easily even, think that when you already have the most wonderful cardigan ever, there's really no way to make it any better.


Enter a pink diamond-shiamond scarab...

... and now it's perfect.

Shiny Thursday!


P.S. Both the cardi and the little bug were thrifted finds, the jacket was found in Helsinki a few years back (picked for me by my sis) and the cutest insect I discovered at local fleamarket the other day costing 1euro/0,8£/1,4usd. Love.

Mia that pink diamond encrusted scarab must have shouted at the top of his voice..."Mia" as you walked by...it was obviously made for your almost (but now) perfect cardigan. What a find. Happy Thursday,

Dear Jane,

I knew you would understand me in this :) I just couldn't leave the bug behind. Couldn't.

Have a wonderful Thursday, kiss Billy for me please, and we'll have weekend soon again! Amazing!

Mia, just love your cardigan and your find at the flea market. You find the best things. You definitely have a knack for finding things or them finding you!!!! Do they really shout "MIA MIA"?! hahahaha
The scarab looks lovely and I'm sure beautiful on you.
Have happy happy day, xoRobin❤

Mia said...

Dear Robin,

I think they actually do shout ;) in my ears at least! I do rarely find clothes for myself in fleamarkets (I'm tall, I love pink, I do not wear hipster-sort of fashion :) you see my problem here?) but there are some gems like these two. Loving them both!

Have a wonderful weekend coming soon again (an another week gone!), and sunshine from here!

Sooo pretty, Mia! I love the beaded flowers on the cardi and the beautiful little bug is so perfect with it, it looked as if you'd had it custom made! Gorgeous!
Have a happy nearly weekend.

Mia said...

When I saw the bug I new with what I'll wear it! What a happy find it was!

Have a sunny and wonderful weekend too!

Hello Viv,

I was shocked too when I saw the price, I actually bought an another pretty brooch from the same seller too (a bird) and I'll show that later, it also was 1euro! Sometimes there are such a wonderful bargains!

Have a great weekend soon!

Mia said...

Thank you Beth, I love them both!

Dear Mia,

Good things do come from Helsinki---I love that cardigan.

The brooch is so you (I've never seen one exactly like it)!!!!

Happy Birthday weekend to L, again.

xx Anne

Mia said...

Dear Anne,

I know, I know, and that's exactly why we're heading there next weekend! I wish I'll have MANY things to show to you after that trip! And the little bug is fantastic, all the other jewelry on that stand had 80s feel to it, maybe this one is from that (my favorite!) era too?

Have a good weekend, L's B-day was a wonderful one!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
