I'm quite fed up with winter lately....
We have had a lot of snow compared to previous years... and apparently it's not finished!
It's fun to see how snow can bring happiness at the season's beginning and how it brings bad mood now...
So to fight this winter blues what I do is wearing colorfull clothes!
I'm also trying to enjoy that wool clothes that I will not be able to wear again in a few weeks.
These pictures was taken in a castle's park near home.
There are beautiful centenary trees...
and some abandonned buildings.
As I already told you, I built my outfits around a piece of clothes or an accessory I want to wear.
Here it's this funny hat, I called it "the dalmatian hat"! I bought it NOS from an antique seller who is collecting vintage clothing that's really rare to find these kind of sellers here!
This hat is made of wool felt in a lovely color and this front twist give it a funny look!
Silly hats are definitively the best!!!!
You can notice my hair today, they are quite freezy... I wanted to give another chance to sponge hair rollers... First, I want to say that I didn't sleep better than with my usual rollers on and secondly I don't think the result is better! They perhaps dried a bit faster.
I bought this wool dress suit from Ebay last year, it is an example of vintage in good condition but that have been badly altered.
I cannot wear the dress without the jacket because the bust have been shorten and I cannot wear the original belt because it was cut to fit a really smaller waist.
That's why I usually don't want to alter my own clothes and prefer to sell them, larger sizes are so hard to find so why distroying the original cut of an outfit?
I made some clothes altered but I don't think they fit properly after....
Brooches are less and less loved in our modern world but I personally love them a lot.
That's why you can also buy them for really affordable prices even if they are gorgeous!
Even my husband can wear some pins!
It's a vintage buick dealer's one.
I also want to enjoy a bit more my new coat....
With this cute pink purse I added a bit more color.
These shades are definitively those I perhaps love the most:
purple, pink, raspberry...
Just a classic 50's outfit for Sylvain....
High waist pants and a vintage flecked jacket!
This tie bar was made by the ties brand Arrow, it is really stylish, isn't it?
Do you suffer from winter blues like us?
Do you often alter vintage clothes?
