Freebie Friday: Fall Fashion

ruana

Last spring, during the Fall/Winter 2014 ready-to-wear collections, Europe was experiencing a bit of a cold snap. As a result, a lot of fashion editors were photographed wearing ruanas — a square or rectangular blanket with an opening in the centre. Basically, an Andean style of poncho. And ever since I saw those street style snaps, I have wanted one of my own.

Luckily, sidewalk providence has once again provided me with what I need. I found this wooly covering in a “free” box on Ossington Ave. The only issue with it seems to be that it is covered in dog hair. My trusty lint brush and a good dry cleaning should make it good as new in time for cooler weather. It will also look lovely with this drawstring, mid-calf skirt that I scored on sale at Joe Fresh. Hopefully I won’t look too peasanty.
