tiered + shaggy












cardigan  shaggy knit sweater c/o shopakira
dress  vintage, thrifted
shoes  vintage

I am increasingly picky about adding non-vintage pieces to my wardrobe, mostly because so many of them aren't my style and when they are my style the prices often make them unattainable. But this funny little cardigan/jacket/muppet sweater from shopakira seems to fit right in, despite totally sticking out at the same time. It's fuzzy! It's fringy! It's weird in the best possible way. The tiered 1970's dress is one I've had for a few years but I think it will be making its way into the shop soon because I can't keep every single dress forever... as much as I'd like to, for dress museum purposes.

It really does have a fringy flapper appeal, in that red. Such an unusual piece really, it looks like it would be vintage.

You are so beautiful by the way.

Yes, it's true. It may resemble a muppet, but you can pull it off where other could not.

love this look! and the photo of you on the steps in great! gosh, you are the best at posing! and i hear ya about adding new things to the wardrobe. although now that i work at beacons I own more and more new brand name things. however they are all second hand so its like thrifting, and that makes it okay for me :)
