365 Vintage Days: Jack Scott at Virgin Oil

On the 10th of August, Helsinki enjoyed the visit of the original 1950’s Rock n’ Roll artist Jack Scott, for a gig at Virgin Oil. For the evening, I chose to dress pretty casually and comfortably, but smart, with a green gabardine pencil skirt; a dark blue rayon blouse, with green, white and red prints; dark blue belt, heels and purse; and red and green bakelite jewelry.

We took a couple of pictures at home before heading to the city center, and then a few close-up pics at the venue. Unfortunately, in the meantime, I had lost part of one bakelite earring, and thus took them both off. This is something that happens sometimes and is always very annoying.

Despite of this, we had a great evening: Jack Scott had a fantastic show and was backed by top musicians , the venue was packed with friends, and the last band – Fat Boy from Sweden – was not bad either, although not my favorite.

I purchased the skirt from a vintage shop in Portland in spring 2012, the belt and the blouse are from Boss of Denver (spring 2013). The heels are from the Brooklyn flea-market in October 2011. The bangles are from various places in the US. The earrings were from the Long Beach Flea Market. The purse is from Apparel from the Past, in Baroda Michigan, last September.

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 ...

      J’aime beaucoup cette blouse aussi, mais elle est un peu abimée suite à stockage sur cintre métallique. Dommage.
