So I am so not built for the late 20s/ early 30s but this week I was going for capturing a bit of the era. I know the coat isn't of the era but I do love it.
I would have loved long strands of pearls (fake are fine) to complete the look but I don't have any so I used some of my school-fair 50c strands in blue.
The shoes are from Hannahs and I've had them for a couple of years now - I love the way they look (they aren't very comfy though!)
The dress is the latest acquisition - I bought it at another SaveMart in Christchurch on Saturday. It is super comfy - think stretchy and soft and I have a feeling it might actually be a nighty - not that that stopped me wearing it to church.
Coat - bought in an op-shop about 9 years ago - original 1960s number.
Dress - $9.99 Save Mart Christchurch
Beads - 50c per strand school fair - bracelet is a long string of beads too
Shoes - Hannahs 2-3 years old
Tights - ancient!!
Headband - from one of those accessory shops in the malls about 3 years ago
Lipstick - a Lancome one I inherited from my sister '172 rouge cristal'
So if you are like me and you like spying in other people's wardrobes you can see some in these lovely places
or you can have a look through my wardrobe
I love that you are creating whole new era inspired looks from items you already own!
THAT COAT IS FABULOUS!!!!
LOVe the black & white dress and the pop of color in both the coat and the beads!

Brilliant... I think the shoes top it off perfectly for that 20's feel ")

and it is SO comfy

thanks Kimberly I love it too
Thanks Daryl - it was a great find
Thanks so much Sarah
You're such a style queen - and I NEVER would have thought that gorgeous dress was a nightdress (until you mentioned it!). Love the outfit with those shoes matching perfectly. The blue beads contrast well too. Fabulous!
Thanks Sarah - I didn't think of it as a nighty originally but then I thought maybe it was!
