resembling burgundy, but has more purple and dark brown hues !!!

welcome to 'what i wore' wednesday
i'm joining lindsey for some fashion fun
i found this tunic in halifax, nova scotia ... over 10 years ago
it was sitting in a dollar bin outside one of the vintage stores by the old library.
originally a dress that went down to my knees,
i shortened it into a tunic
(just because i was in a tunic phase at the time)
for extra warmth...
i layer it with a wool vest that i inherited
from my friend cathy a few years ago.
made with 100% lambswool,
the vest is perfect when the temperature dips below 10 degrees celsius
we were both channeling our inner buddhists at the time
and couldn't get enough burgandy into our wardrobe.
finally... for the last layer of coziness,
just in case that north wind decides to chill the air even more...
i add a scarf to the ensemble for insurance.
this was a christmas gift from my adorable mother-in-law.
again, from a little shop in the annapolis valley of nova scotia.
it really is so lovely to be wearing so many fond memories with each layer.
are you wearing any sentimentality today???
