she's so heavy

Outfit Details:
Vintage 1970s tweed and leather jacket: thrifted
Peter pan collar blouse: thrifted
Vintage wool trouser pants: thrifted
Felt hat: originally from Target, found at a thrift store
Terrible black cardigan: Urban Outfitters, on super sale
Vintage fringed loafers: thrifted

Kind of a departure from my normal sense of style but you know what? I could get used to dressing like a dapper dude. It's pretty comfortable. I guess I was a bit inspired by images from the Beatles' last photo shoot  and Annie Hall.

Currently, I'm huddled on top of my bed with a fuzzy blanket and the space heater on at full blast. It's raining hard outside and I just finished watching Edward Scissorhands on Netflix. I don't know what it is about that movie but it always makes me teary eyed. Ugh he just wanted to be loved okay!

PS: CardiganKing got a big update so come check it out if you're on the hunt for that perfect vintage cardigan and or sweater.

  13. one of my absolute favorite looks, pulled off impeccably in my humble opinion. its been a while and been meaning to get annnie hall out again-- incidentally i just read an interview with diane keaton and she said evrything she wore in the movie was actually all hers, put together by her. i just loved reading that.
