an inebriated rabbit


coat  thrifted
blouse  vintage from ver unica
brooch  vintage


This rabbit brooch is one of my prized possessions. I found it at the Vintage Fashion Expo (perhaps my favorite event of all time) last year. One look at those huge teeth and loopy drunk eyes and I was deeply smitten. In fact, buying this brooch set me off on a bit of an animal-brooch-buying frenzy. I have quite a collection now of completely silly brooches like this one and I can't seem to stop just yet. I just feel like the perfect inebriated fox brooch might be waiting for me if I look hard enough...

Oh, it's so kooky and adorable. I definitely have fallen in love with brooches lately!
From what I can see of the outfit, what you're wearing is beautiful. The blouse is so delicate and lovely! ♡

I absolutely adore vintage brooches and especially the animal variety! I must collect more. The thrfit stores here have been sorely lacking in the jewellery department lately, but that just means I shall have to look harder!

Love the vintage rabbit brooch - have amassed quite a collection of vintage bird brooches myself, no inebriated ones in the collection yet though!

The rabbit looks like on crack, but it's lovely at the same time :)

DROOOOL.
I love anything bunnies. Especially inebriated ones.


Just discovered you through Calivintage, so I'm still trying to do my homework and see if you reveal your musical taste on here, but if you're into something a little rockin, here's something fun.
