I wore this autumnally-hued outfit to the Golden Collective sale last Sunday. The hat, cardigan and skirt were all found that same weekend at the Vintage Fashion Expo and I can tell they will be in heavy rotation for a while. The sale was a bit slower than usual due to some stupidly windy, freezing weather. I added a second cardigan to this outfit for warmth but I still couldn't feel my fingers and toes at the end of the day. But it was nothing a surprise birthday cake couldn't fix! The Golden Collective ladies surprised me, mid-sentence, by suddenly singing Happy Birthday and bringing out a cake that said "Ash Bomb" on it. Pretty wonderful, those buds of mine!
