Dressed for a romantic date; a walk in the woods, surrounded by wild flowers and bird song; coffee and brunch and getting caught in the rain. I found this top at a local second-hand market for £4, brand-new, unworn and this was its first outing. I paired it with a skirt that I definitely don't get to wear enough, and I felt like a wild banshee or that I should be a character from a Rasputina song.

Just a quick note, should anyone be wondering, seeing as I do label myself as a vegan and I am clearly wearing leather here; I am comfortable wearing second-hand leather, both items before I went vegan, and second-hand items I have bought since. I will not buy new leather items. These are just my own personal ideals. Thank you!
