Autumn day outfit #2

Goodness, where has this week gone? That’s what happens when you have a cold. Suddenly it’s Friday and you feel like you haven’t accomplished anything.

Since I haven’t had the time to write up a blog post, you’ll have to make do with another outfit post. Last weekend we went to the International Expo of Sculptural and Functional Art and Intuit Show of Folk and Outsider Art. My tastes definitely lean to the latter.

This was my first time wearing this dress, a handmade vintage wool dress with (what I think are) dolman sleeves. I absolutely love it. The woman who made it took such care, too. It’s meticulous on the inside, including Hong Kong seams. What era do you think it’s from? I’m frankly not sure.

This brooch is one of my favorites, thrifted at some point in time. It was a really windy day, but warm enough that the dress was enough, so I pinned the shawl on and through the dress so it wouldn’t keep blowing away.

I love these gloves with this purse. When I knit them, I had forgotten I had a perfectly matching wicker purse. Kismet! It makes me think I may actually knit more gloves, after all, even though the fingers are such a chore. Or perhaps I shall be on the hunt for some fantastic vintage ones, like Charlotte of Tuppence Ha’Penny detailed in her recent post. I always long to have more matching accessories, but never seem to do anything about it.

Outfit details: vintage dress from La Poubelle Vintage; 30s/40s shoes from a vendor at Randolph Street Market; thrifted vintage brooch; Bakelite earrings from Etsy; gloves, beret, shawl all hand-knit by me.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
