Haven’t done an outfit post in a while, be it time constraints, or just plain ol’ lack of sartorial inspiration, but I finally had the urge to do one because I wanted to capture this outfit fully because it became such a surprise love affair. You know what I mean? You kind of just throw something together, put it on, and then realize you love absolutely everything about it? This was that.
The colors are so perfect for Fall, with the kind of patinaed hues you’d see in a display of vintage bakelite bangles– rust, dark green, goldenrod, but what I love about this outfit is the combination of an awesome print mix–brigitte bardot babe print and butterflies– with the depth of textures–thick leather, crisp cotton, soft chenille.

Thank you all for the comments on my last post! I love knowing it resonated with so many of you and I especially loved hearing your own vintage horror stories as well. So glad I’m not alone in suffering from coveting/hoarding/spending too much and all other vintage-related ailments!
