I came home yesterday to find a package in my mailbox from my lovely UK blogging pal Curtise, which contained this charcoal wrap vest. At first I was mystified by the large circle of grey with two holes in it - I kept turning it around trying to figure out what it was, but after a few minutes, the light went on, and I experimented with belting and pinning it in different configurations. This is what I ended up with today, for a rather soggy excursion to the Western Fair Farmers' Market with Heather.
drapey wrap vest thing - gift from Curtise
patterned jeans - retail
patent belt - thrifted
patent boots - thrifted
While at the market I ran into the Queen of Bling, Jackie, who was looking fabulously festive in red and black, with lots of sparkle, and a spectacular fascinator. She loves dressing up for whatever the day has in store, and she was definitely the most eye-catching woman in the market today.
Today's Vintage Gift Ideas....
When you don't want to have to worry about size and fit in a gift for the vintage-loving gal on your list, a late 1960's travel case/hat box is just the thing. This one from Lovesick is a beauty - the white vinyl is in excellent condition, and the Paris scene is more art than kitsch.
Also at Lovesick, this thick fleece poncho with contrasting gold lining - how cool would this look with a pair of jeans or cords and some knee high boots?
