Outfit of the Day

I’m not prepared to dress for the cold

Because I am on a limited budget for buying vintage and vintage reproduction clothes, I haven’t gotten to the point yet where I have purchased vintage trousers. And to be honest I have only found one pair of vintage trousers that I like on the Vivien of Holloway website. They are a company based in England and right now the British pound is more than the US dollar so that does not work in my favor. I love these trousers but they are a little out of the price range I want to pay for a pair of pants right now so needless to say I don’t have any vintage trousers right now. So this winter my days of dressing vintage has been limited to warm days of at least 50 degrees, and we haven’t had too many of those lately. If I wasn’t such a wimp, I would just suck it up and wear the dresses anyway, but lets face it I like to be war over wearing a dress! This past Friday it was close to 60 degrees so I got to wear a dress that I ordered months ago and was waiting to wear. I was so excited. Believe it or not I bought this dress on the Wish App! The quality is decent enough for the $15 I paid for it and it actually looked like the dress in the picture so that is exciting. Here is my outfit with details on where I purchased all the items I am wearing.

Dress: Wish App

Stockings: What Katie Did

Petticoat: Grace Karin purchased from Amazon

Belt: Unique Vintage

Shoes: Modcloth

I’m also wearing my first snood! These are great for days when I don’t feel like curling all of my hair or doing an over night roller set. I just threw in two victory rolls with my trusted Roll and Go Tool (Check for a post on that in the future) and then threw the rest of my hair in the snood with a rose hair clip. It took me 5 minutes to do my hair!
