Green Flower, Cabbage or Broccoli?

What is this? A huge green flower? A giant cabbage? Light green broccoli?

I got this green, round, flower shaped bag with gold metal clasps a long time ago at some thrift store somewhere in Texas. Was it Fredericksburg? I can't remember. But it's old and long forgotten, until I saw some pretty similar, spanking new bags in various colors with the same flowery style a while ago at the mall. I was like, hey, I've already had a purse like that! Isn't it just adorable?

And yeah, I think by now, no one would blink an eye seeing me taking outfit pictures every morning or during lunch hour at the office, haha!


Tan jacket: DKNY. Black slacks: office uniform by Accent. Copper colored shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Cabbage green purse: thrifted. Flower pearly earrings: thrifted. Military style necklace: bought online. Camay long necklace: Bugis Junction, Singapore. Camel striped top: Bebe. Avocado green vest: Japanese vintage, Mom's. Bracelets: Shanghai Tang, old collection, gifted.
I usually don't go for army style, but this necklace is just gorgeous I had to get it.


This is how it looks without the jacket.
Ow, Jenny and Catherine of Modern Modest Beauty kindly featured me in their Lovely Things Thursday link party. Thank you, Ladies! I'm glad you think my post about painting nail poish over old accessories will be helpful to your readers!

Wow ! The bag is BEAUTIFUL ! I'm in love with the bag. The accesories are so stylish, love all the neck pieces and bangles / bracelets ! I really love the mint color of the bag, accesories and the vest.
The striped top will go very well with both the pink and mint vest , only you need to wear white accesories and white bag along with the pink vest, ( which you have already done in the last picture ! )
Have a nice day ,

Everything is so beautiful, I loved the bag, lovely!!
I would love to be able to have more time to devote myself to visit friends bloggers, because I do a course and time becomes short.

A great start of week! ♥

This look yelled out to me on Visible Monday. The purse is fantastic and I love how you styled your lime/tan/blk outfit to go with.

Purse looks like a succulent to me. This kind:

Very cute! I like the bag. It is different but lots of fun. I am actually a fan of the green vs. the pink.

I love your bag. It reminds me of a zinnia flower.
I vote for green on the top. I like both, but that one is just so pretty.
