365 Vintage Days: in the attic

New home means also that we had to move away from our previous home. But before we had to give the keys to the new owners we made a last visit to the attic of this 1956 – 9 storey- appartment house, for a few pictures.

I was wearing one of my latest dress made by Eija, of VintagEija’s, using original vintage fabric: yellow with brown polka dots.

We started with some pictures inside and then my husband suggested I’d go on the roof to enjoy the view. Ninth floor… so some 40 meters high. I hesitated a bit but finally climbed to the roof opening.

The view – here towards the south, with Hakaniemi, then Kruunuhaka and Katajanokka neighbourhoods, the Baltic Sea, the ice breakers waiting for next winter, the Uspenski Cathedral and urban roof tops was definitely worth it! And the weather just perfect.

In our new house, the attic has been changed into private appartments, so no view to be enjoyed by the others.

The fabric for this dress is from a vintage shop in Brussels, in October 2012. The brown belt is a really old purchase from the US. I have actually that same belt also in black, in blue and in pink.
The wedges are from a vintage shop in Seattle that existed in the early 2000 but is now closed. the brown purse is from an antique mall in London, Ontario, Canada a couple of years ago. The brown lucite costume jewelry set was purchased in two parts: the earrings and necklace in the late 1990’s and the bracelet ten years later.

365 Vintage Days

365 vintage days was a bet and a challenge. From March 2011 to March 2012, during 365 days, I published every day a new post with a different vintage outfit and had you witnessing the challenge. I have been buying and wearing 50’s clothing and accessories – most of it casual - for more than twenty years and I am still doing so. This blog now continues ...

    Superbe robe! Je me souviens de ce tissu… Un petit pincement au cœur en quittant votre ancien petit nid? Allez, le nouveau est sûrement encore mieux, faudra décidemment qu’on viennent voir cela. Bye, Laurence

      Sympa n’est-ce-pas? Et la chemise hawaiienne de Jouni est superbe aussi. La robe avec le tissus rouge est presque prête 🙂
