I figured I'd share some of the few good pictures I have of a vintage outfit.
This outfit I wore to church on nearly-Veteran's Day Sunday last November. This is a red wool skirt, which is definitely late 1940s with small but obnoxiously hip-emphasizing high pockets and a center front double inverted box pleat. The blue suit jacket is one of my early ebay vintage purchases, clearly the remaining half of a suit, and probably also late 1940s. Then I wore a modern blue-and-white striped shirt I got from Chadwicks and my patriotic shoes. These are also modern but very retro-styled, and a gift from my mother. My front hair is in rolls, and those are vintage clip-on red, white, and blue earrings. It was a fun outfit.
For those who live and love vintage
