A 50's sweater girl ...

All vintage lovers know that winter clothes are harder to find than pretty coton summer dresses so when I find a nice winter set in my size I cannot miss it!!! The price must be also afforbable of course...
I usually don't wear knit dresses due to my curves but I own some 50's sweater suits... most of the time I only wear the sweaters of these sets because the skirts are not very flattering for large hips!
But I have just bought on Etsy from a really friendly seller Linda an amazing suit, I really fell in love with its color!


Just perfect to match my green eyes!!!!


Match also the color of my house shutters!!!!


I found those cute 50's dice earrings in a flea market in South of France some years ago.


Just a few words about my hair... just natural curls!!!!



I'm wearing this 40's beret for the first time. It was one of my purchases during my parisian trip for Christmas. It's a NOS hat!!! I love berets, easy to wear, elegant and so... FRENCH!!!!



I forgot to speak about these boots that I'm wearing on this picture... I was searching for 40's-50's style boots for winter because I often cannot wear my vintage pairs on winter due to snow or rain. I was really pleased to find these in a local ordinary shoes store before Xmas. There are a lot of nice repro for wedges or scandals but when it comes to winter shoes, it's hard to find, often inspired not really perfect reproduction.


It's often not easy to find the best coat to match an outfit... You can have an amazing New Look suit but if you are wearing common coat it's a pity ! I'm wearing here one of my favorite brooch : 2 green early plastic swallows linked by a chain made of pearls !!!


Do you wear vintage knit dresses ?
What are your favorite colors for your wardrobe ?

  5. You look amazing!

    I agree, it's difficult to find warmer clothes, especially coats and shoes! I got a lugh out of my inter boots teh other day, though. I bought them last year for warmth- Swedish winters can be very cold, but they are quite ugly. Then I saw a shoe ad from the 40's with a nearly identical pair of boots! They did have ugly shoes back then too... ;)
