So this is the bundled up 'fit I ended up wearing to hit the sales one last time, and to eat SUSHI. After those weird first weeks of January feeling like spring had sprung, winter has returned full force. I still have to get my head around the fact that I'm back to layers and knits and boots, even though I'm SO ready for spring. Oh well, I should just be glad I have some more time to wear my pretty wintercoats. Wintercoats are so much better than lighter jackets. Light jackets are for pussies. This coat is SO ridiculously warm. It just strenghtens my belief that old, vintage clothes are far superior to modern highstreet stuff.
I know this outfit is weird but the colors are sorta within the same color family, so it works for me! And the oranges match my hair! Ohyeah.
I didn't end up buying anything in the sales yesterday, but I did sneak in a visit to my favorite vintage shop where I bought a simple black floral dress, and I tried on this beauty:
it looks sort of crappy in these pics, but it is gorgeously floaty and seventies princessy in real life. It fit me like a glove, but I had to be honest with myself: I would never wear it. It grazes the floor if I wear heels, so it's really long. And ridiculously overdressed. But stunning nonetheless! If I ever get married, I'll probably go for something along the lines of this dress but with a different neckline.
My obsession for fifties silhouettes and shirtdresses for S/S2011 is still going strong. I'm prowling etsy every chance I get. Here are some of my new faves!
I want to marry Etsy.
