365 Vintage Days: Museum of Natural Sciences

A day at the museum of Natural Sciences, with our god-daughter. Walking among dinosauruses and other natural wonders felt like being a child again. And even more so when we ended in a playground… and had fun with the swings. How fun can one have with a 6-year-old.

I was wearing a grey and pink woolen skirt, with a matching wrap, a pink cashmere sweater and a grey wool jacket. I had pink plastic jewelry and black ballerinas as well as a grey purse (I am still looking for matching grey ballerinas or wedges).

I found the skirt and wrap set last Spring from a small vintage shop in San Bernardino, California but I almost did not buy it: the reason? it was badly damaged by moths and full of holes, especially the wrap! Yet, the fabric is such that the holes are not easily seen, unless you look for them. The price -10 dollars -convinced me to give it a try. I had to do a lot of mending and I may be able to use the set only a couple of times. I also have to be ready for damage when I wash or dry-clean it but I am happy I bought it.
The pink cashmere sweater is from Rainbow Vintage, at Viva Las Vegas weekender, also last spring. The jacket is from Tamara and Cyril’s vintage stall at a R’n’R weekender in the UK a couple of years ago (they also have an etsyshop: dixiefried). The pink plastic earrings are from France and purchased in the late 80’s or early 90’s and the bracelet… well I do not recall. The grey and funny shaped purse is from a vintage stall at the ”Talvi Heikki” vintage and curiosa event in Turku, last March. The ballerinas are modern ones.

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 ...
