What I Wore~ Sunday Style{Vintage Inspired}

Here's what I wore several Sundays back when the weather was still kinda' chilly. Except for the shoes and tights this entire outfit was "thrifted" from Goodwill!

Looking at this photo I wish I had added a necklace...more than likely I was running late{which happens quite frequently} and didn't have time to select and put on the right one! ;)
A simple and slightly messy up do. It's no easy task for me to get my hair back in a bun so I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!
Long sleeve shirt:  thrifted; $2.00
Cardigan: thrifted; $4.00
Skirt: Ralph Lauren{via Goodwill}; $5.00
Tights: gift; free
Wedges: American Eagle{via Payless}; ???{I bought these so long ago I'm not sure how much they were!;)}
Pearl earrings: Claire's; ???{same story}

I absolutely love this cardigan with it's big houndstooth check pattern and big collar! The pattern, collar, and even the big buttons are very reminiscent of the early 60's. It reminds me of the stylish ladies coats and suits from that era. My skirt{kinda'} makes me think of the fuller skirts worn in the 1950's...I even wore a vintage slip which helped the skirt to stand out a bit more.
The top pictures show the big collars{usually trimmed in fur} which were very stylish then and{in my opinion}still are! The two pictures below are of the tailored yet feminine suits from that era; the one on the right is a suit in houndstooth check. I'm hoping to get another outfit post up featuring this same cardigan, except the outfit has a 1930's look to it; stay tuned for it! How about you; do you like to dress in vintage inspired outfits?

  3. Great outfit, Sarah! That cardigan is adorable! :D It definitely looks 60's and it reminds me of the plaid jacket Mom and I recently got - it's part of one of my 60's how-to outfits, in fact. Great minds think alike? ;)
