outfit post: i carry your heart

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)



The theme lately is HEARTS. The same day I bought my new red heart-shaped sunnies was the day a little treat came in the mail from....SCOTLAND! Franca, the brain, beauty and brawn behind the feminist-fashion blog, Oranges and Apples sent me some of her blogger cards that she got from Moo.com, AND a sweet fluffy heart pin which I've been wearing non-stop since I got it. Franca is a sweet-heart to send it. THANK-YOU FRANCA! Here you can see it is the perfect companion for my shades. Nice, eh? 

The socks are yet another pair from Socks 4 Life, from when I won a $25 gift certificate from the Fashionista Next Door. I am loving my new heart socks (shown here) and these plaid socks. In fact I've got my eye on a few more pair over there- they rock!
The Rosebud & the Rosebush

Now Wearing: 
  • Red Heart Sunglasses, new from Freestyle
  • Grey wool half-jacket, my closet
  • Ratty old T-shirt
  • Seven for All Mankind jean skirt, hand-me-down
  • Socks 4 Life plaid over-the-knee socks
  • Vintage black leather boots, Thrift Town
  • BUTT UGLY Last Supper Tapestry Bag, my closet

Love the whole outfit! It's the sort of thing I would wear as I love jean skirts and over-the-knee socks.

I love all this heart talk! Not sure if you know, but I have an anatomical heart tattoo on my arm...you might say I have a thing for hearts. Man, I want those sunglasses. If you ever see some that are anatomically correct, snatch them up. I'll pay you back ASAP!

Fashion Momma said...

MY HEART IS BURSTING with love for you! Ohmygosh. Your socks are amazing. AH-MAZING. And your puffy heart? Mmhmm... welcome to my signature saying. I puffy heart it.

And oh wait, your sunglasses? Hush up. Want.

Polka Princess said...

Your OTK plaid socks are so cool! And "hearting" those heart sunnies!!!!! :))

NikkNaks said...

One of my favorite outfits on you! I just found an adorable black and white checkered heart pin that would be cute with that to!

Roz said...

A beautiful quote at the beginning. I'm never sure where I stand with hearts (the pattern variety). I think I had such an obsession with them when I was little that now they forever remind me of being nine again, and going through a 'pink phase'. However, there is always something sweet about them.
My favourite detail about your outfit is the socks. Very Vivienne Westwood (I'm not sure if that is my reaction to anything red and vaguely tartan related?)

GRIT AND GLAMOUR said...

I heart those glasses and I heart you, dear Bella. Thanks for your endless creativity and kindness, especially last week.

xoxo

My Heart Blogged said...

I have always been a big fan of hearts. The plaid socks peeking from your boots looks awesome. That poem is one of my all time favorites. It makes me think of my mother, and how we are always with each other (we are close). I wrote it in a mother's day card one year, and she loved it to pieces.

Annimal House said...

Elaine said...

Kirstin Marie said...

Those heart shaped sunglasses are so cute! You are the second person I've seen them on, and they are so much fun.

I have a question for you - How is it that you look pretty much amazing in everything you wear? Seriously!

Terri said...

What a gorgeous poem, a bit of cummings I had been unfamiliar with.

No, no, no, Bella! I carry your heart. :)

I am so glad you're loving your socks!! I love those glasses. Somewhere in my nightstand, I have a pair of pink heart glasses. I'm gonna have to break them out just for you!

UN-stitched said...

Bella, love the hearts. I'm convinced I must incorporate more legwear into my wardrobe. I have not read that poem in so long and I'm reminded how beautiful it is. How awesome is Franca?! "The Rosebud and the Rosebush" - so cute! Smiling.

I love the sunglasses! And I'm reminded that I should keep an eye out while I'm thrifting for a good denim skirt. The yuck ones are plentiful but a good one? AMAZING.

This is my favourite poem Bella! And now I am bloody well crying again. I guess that is what being open is all about, feeling moved by my loved ones, by you. You look beautiful, the glasses are perfection. Thank you so much for your shower of love-comment at Steph`s. Whenever I feel down I shall go reread your words. Mwuah!

Misfits Vintage said...

Ooh I LOVE those socks! And I am a total sucker for some heart shaped sunnies too!
