sail me away

thrifted scarf (turban). asos tank. vintage glasses, wool sailor pants & bracelet. steve madden loafers. souvenir ring.

Sail, sail me away to the land where I belong and love! New York City that is! I'm actually at the airport waiting for my flight back to NY. I hate flying. I had to rebook due to the evil lady hurricane Irene. Everyone is freaking out about it! It's quite frightening!
But anyways, I received these vintage sailor pants as a gift from my brother this past Christmas and I was so delighted! (they were on my xmas list!) But for some reason today was the first time wearing them! I just love what it does to my body! It elongates my short legs and makes my waist look tiny! I love them and yes they were legit sailor pants!

In addition this look is also part of the "Fashion for Feelings" Campaign by Woolmark. Many bloggers are participating in this campaign and you can to! This campaign is about educating others about the renewable and natural fibre wool! The look you submit must have at least one wool item. In this case it's my pants! Did I also mention that there's a prize?! The winning look wins a $12,000 AUD round trip to Australia for 2! Find out more info about the grand prize here!


feel free to follow me on twitter :)
ps. good luck!
