Back from a long break again… the end of the year has been busy, with Christmas in France and organising our traditional New Year’s Eve party at home. And above all, I have been, and I am still strugling to get rid of a long and tough flue. I have been wearing vintage, as usual, including a number of outfits that I have not posted yet but I did not get pictures. Hence, I’ll be again presenting outfits from a little older pictures, such as this one.
The center piece of this outfit is a black, long sleeved blouse, with hand painted Paris cityscapes and rhinestones. The sleeves button like with cuff-links and all the buttons are like small clocks.
I wore the blouse with dark turquoise cigarette pants and a slim belt with metal hinges. Then black penny loafers, a black bucket bag and turquoise blue charm bracelet and earrings.
I purchased the skirt on etsy from my friend Coralie (her shop is called ”MademoiselleCoco”) a couple of years ago. I love it but I try not to wear it too often: I am afraid that the paintings would fade from too frequent washing. The pants are from ebay. The penny loafers are modern ones, but a classical model and I added the necessary pennies. The purse is from an Antique mall in Oregon or in Washington state two years ago. The bracelet is from a vintage shop in Saint Augustine (Florida) and the belt from the ”Apparel from the past” vintage shop in Baroda, Michigan.
