365 Vintage Days: 17. Red and Black Felt Skirt

Today is felt skirt day again… the winter seems to be never ending so I have to wear warmly.

This black, red and white felt skirt is from the flea market at the Rockabilly Rave weekender in the UK, purchased some three years ago from a Mexican girl who lives in the Netherlands . Quite an international connection, both in vintage and in music. With this skirt, I wear a red, short sleeve sweater purchased last summer from a vintage shop near BrickLane in London, a red belt with golden crowns (I can’t remember its origin), a red purse (ebay) and red ballerinas. The ballerinas are French made from the 50’s in perfect condition, purchased  from a French couple: Tamara and Cyril, over ten years ago at the flea market at the Hemsby Rock ’n Roll weekender in the UK. Tamara and Cyril nowadays also sell at the High Rockabilly (Spain) and the Rockabilly Rave (UK) weekenders and always have a lot of nice dead stock stuff, from France and from the US, including shoes, purses, accessories and  clothing. I have actually purchased quite many nice things from them but mostly summer stuff so you’ll have to wait to see. The bakelite loop earrings are from ebay.
