365 Vintage Days: Business in Blue and Brown

Vintage suits form the base of my business style. I have different ones, in different colours and this blue one with brown fur accent at the collar is one of my favorite fall suits. It is slightly too large for me but altering it would probably be a difficult job. On the other hand, I like it too much to sell it away. So I wear it!

I have no one to take pictures of my outfits at work, so these pictures were taken at home, after work… That day, I also wore a brown sweater (repro), brown heels, belt and I had a brown purse. I keep jewelry at a low level at work, so I only had gold loop earrings.

The skirt is a simple one but the jacket has bat-wing sleeves and a nice blouse-back. The warm and soft fur collar has been added later and can be removed for dry cleaning. I am a real fan of blue and brown color combination so this suit was really a great find. For a bargain price, in September 2012, at and antique mall in Atlantic City (Illinois).

I purchased the heels from a small vintage shop Rue des Rosiers, in the Paris Clignancourt flea market area years ago. The purse is from the Oilers’ flea market last spring.
