I think it is an adventure in itself when you are able to find "retro" items that are in the mainstream shops. Then another hurdle to jump over is finding items that aren't cheaply made. This sweater really felt like it had a 1950s influence and maybe this is why I was so drawn to it. I have been trying to get more color into my wardrobe but I still really gravitate back to basic colors and patterns, especially with black in the mix.
Crop Sweater: Black House White Market
Shoes: Not vintage but great spectator shoes (Bass)
Bracelet: Faux pearl bracelet estate sale
Earrings: Vintage shop Michigan black rhinestone fans
Rings: Vintage mosaic ring, floral ring gift from a friend
Brooch: My friend(s) Scottie(s)
I picked up this (I believe vintage but if not still lovely.) pearl bracelet at an estate sale in Grosse Pointe over the summer. Grosse Pointe is such an interesting place. There are so many houses that sing of old grandeur and in some of these blocks you really feel like you are stepping back in time. I would love to see the interiors in some of these homes.
I think this is the perfect sweater for Scottie.
I couldn't leave my other Scottie behind.
I find it a joy when I just step into my car and drive to an area I've never visited before. We did just this. There was a lovely picnic area right next to a small lake. Yes, the cliche Sunday drive but such fun. This was an unexpected stop so all I had was my phone to take some photographs.
This week I'm hoping to get cracking with the Fall For Cotton challenge. Wish me lots of luck! I haven't posted anything about it because I'm starting late and will most likely miss the deadline but at least I may have a pattern and fabric picked out. There are some great outfits to check out on the Flicker site! I love these kinds of challenges.
Hope you all had a cheerful Sunday too!
