I can't believe that there are only a few days left of 2013! This has been the best year for me and I am certainly looking forward to 2014. 2013 brought some exciting developments and this blog is one of them. I have enjoyed doing outfit posts and also being able to comment on all the blogs I love to read - you vintage girls are the best! You have the best style and are a great source of inspiration for me. I also wanted to take the opportunity in this post to say a big THANK YOU to those of you who read my blog and for your lovely comments - I really appreciate them!
OK, on to my outfit...
I have tried to incorporate more separates into my vintage wardrobe. Buying vintage skirts in a small size is pretty easy but one thing I have found is that buying vintage tops in a small size is definitely not easy! Even buying reproduction or vintage inspired tops is really difficult - this is one thing I think that the repro brands out there really need to get on top of - especially when it comes to sweaters! Does anyone else have this problem? Do you have any suggestions for where I can get nice vintage or vintage inspired sweaters from (in a small size!)?
This is one of my favourite cardigans and has a rabbit fur collar (I like to call it my 'Thumper Jumper'...) I bought this on eBay about four years ago and it was the bargain price of £9! These days, these type of fur collar cardigans seem to be more around the £50 price, so I was quite lucky to buy this one at this price. I am also wearing the cashmere sweater and ? Bakelite hoop earrings, both purchased from Rhythm Riot this year. I don't own many Bakelite items so I am not sure (and to be honest, not entirely bothered) if they are indeed genuine Bakelite. I didn't pay very much for them and I bought them because I just love the colour and style!
Hope y'all have a great New Years! See you in 2014!
