goldenrod














Photos by Jen!

cardigan  vintage
dress  1950's vintage from golden fur vintage
corsage  vintage, flea market
purse  the keira c/o melie bianco
belt  thrifted
socks  h&m
shoes  vintage, thrifted

I wore this outfit to the Golden Collective vintage sale a few days ago. The lovely 1950's frock is from my dear friend Emily's shop, Golden Fur Vintage. I love the muted colors and how nicely they pair with some of my strangely hued cardigans, like this little goldenrod number. The wonderfully ladylike bag was a generous gift from Melie Bianco and is perfectly oversized (which means I can stash said cardigans and more inside of it and no one is the wiser). I love that it adds a proper touch to an otherwise quirky look. Until, that is, my face ruins everything (see last photo).

Sometimes I feel like I can dress myself and then I read your blog and think, OKAY I SHOULD JUST GO LIVE IN A HOLE AND WEAR DIRT AND ROCKS NOW.

But I love you really <3

This outfit is just lovely! I really like the small details like the red flowers in the corsage matching your socks. And the cardigan is gorgeous.

This is how to wear color in winter, I love the bright socks! I have a super bright golden rod cardigan that I layer over everything, I like how yours meshes so well with the striped dress.
