Outfit Details: 
Vintage (altered) peter pan illusion blouse: thrifted
Camel cardigan: thrifted
Navy blue 12 year old boy slacks: thrifted
Belle by Sigerson Morrison nude flats: C/O Rue La La
Sunglasses: Asos


So in case you didn't know, I got a hair cut! It's actually a little shorter then what I originally wanted but since my hair grows so fast I figured that I can enjoy the growing out phase a bit longer. Also, with all of these 1920s movies (Huge, The Artist, The Great Gatsby) in theaters/ in production I've been seeing short hair everywhere and it makes me feel better about the length :X I just need to figure out how to do finger waves (cut to me spending two hours on YouTube watching hair and makeup videos. Friday night, what?)

I think this color combo of black, navy blue, and camel is pretty adult of me. I really love black and navy blue together (but only if the navy blue obviously looks blue and is not one of those double take, is that black?? shades) so this outfit was nice to put on. Something else that was nice to put on is this cardigan! I wear so many baggy, oversized ones that this vintage fitted number feels so nice. Thanks for letting me steal this one out of CardiganKing Grant ;-)

Ooh and a note about my vintage store, Three Feathers: I'm closing it down and opening a new store on etsy! I'd been thinking about starting fresh for a long time (I started the etsy way before my blog, hence the different name) and this store is going to be bigger, better, and way more awesome. I'll still be selling vintage clothing but I'm going to add more accessories and possibly housewares to the mix.

Anyway, if you're a fan of the old store I'd so appreciate it if you would favorite the new store right here: http://www.milkteeths.etsy.com

My plan is to open it by the end of the month (at the latest) and let's just say there are going to be some crazy deals to be had in order to kick things off right. I've also been hoarding vintage like a madwoman (hence the lack of new merch in the store right now) so the stuff in the new store is going to be pretty amazing, If I do say so myself!

  5. Love the simplicity of it—plus, it helps that the blouse is pretty awesome. I love short hair, too. I took the plunge a while back and haven't regretted it. Once you figure it out, it takes so much less time in the morning.
