365 Vintage Days: Paris

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.

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 ...

    It’s great to see you posting again! I missed seeing your great outfits. Love your cigarette pants. I have a weakness for them, just purchased a nwt pink pair on etsy for $15. They are kind of hard to find nowadays. I’m always a little self conscious when wearing 50s cigarette pants because how high waisted they are. But you wear them perfectly. Hope you get over the flu soon!

      Thanks Susie for your nice comment! I ’ll keep on posting and there are still plenty of outfits to show. But it might be a bit irregular, even if my flue’s over (so far). I also love cigarette pants, but you’re right they’re not easy to find and pants can be difficult for curvy persons like myself: difficult to get the perfect fit.
