family heirlooms

here i am in front of my childhood home, you got to love visiting the parents for some yummy food and good company. i'm wearing my f21 heels and pure love, my balenciaga step. a reader asked about my watch from this and my last outfit shot. it's actually my mother's omega deville dynamic. her father bought it for her 20th birthday, even though i'm sure it cost at least a month's salary. he was in the army and stationed for a few years in east timor. my mother was the oldest child so she helped out around the house and worked to support the family while he was away so it was a special gift to show his appreciation. i am so happy she passed it down to me. omega's are such amazing watches and mine even has the date in portuguese, which is a constant reminder of the watch's history in my family. so in love.
top: h&m, jeans: citizens, shoes: forever21, bag: balenciaga, watch:omega
