So here are our first inspirations...
a tribute to our first stop in the USA... Portland!
With a Pendleton jacket for Sylvain and a Pendleton skirt for me.
My husband found it in a vintage shop in Oregon where the brand comes from.
My skirt was found in an antiques mall in Las Vegas far away from where it was produced!
Except my purse, shoes and sun glasses,
everything is new in my outfit!
I love trying to match new (to me) clothes and accessories!!!!
My 50's orlon sweater comes from Meow in Long Beach.
This vintage mexican jacket was my last purchase...
but not the least!!!!
I could have it for a good price because there are huge SALES at Viva sunday evening!
I like these kind of jackets a lot , but they are hard to find in good condition and in a larger size...
I have only 2 of them: one in red (here) and this green.
I bought this 40's silk scarf in Seattle, in a vintage shop where I had the pleasure to meet Sara from Lillies and Remains.
This hat is a present from Julie,
the lovely lady who runs Fab Gabs Vintage.
We had the pleasure to attend to one of her famous cocktails parties in Portland!
After the crazy sun of Vegas we are back to wool...
New jacket for Sylvain but also new tie!
That 40's tie comes from Viva.
A lucky horse shoe tie bar....
My husband loves tie bars, he's always looking for unsual ones.
New saddle shoes also from Oregon.
I will tell you more about them in a next post.
Did you notice the brooch on my purse?
I bought it at VLV car show...
from "Miss L Fire" herself!!!
That was a great pleasure to meet one of my favorite shoes designer in person.
She's now making some really nice vintage inspired plastic jewels.
We will need some time to post about our US trip...
a lot of pictures to sort... even if we didn't take as much pictures that we would want....
for example I don't have pictures of all my VLV outfits...
too busy partying with friends ;-)
Do you like colorful clothes?
What do you think about our Portlander outfits?
