Hello again friends,
I’ve got an outfit post for you today, featuring a few things made by me and some other great vintage goodies.
This is the third dirndl skirt that I’ve made using the instructions in Gertie’s book & I’m sure I’ll make more! They are so easy to make and comfortable to wear. I highly recommend giving it a try, if you haven’t already.
I found this great western print cotton at my local fabric store and knew it had to be mine! I think it works perfect for this style of skirt.
The blouse is an old standard of mine that I found in a little antique shop in Florida. I just love these cotton button-up blouses, I wear them with everything!
The shoes (oh, the shoes!!) are red tooled leather wedges that I picked up on my last visit to Los Angeles and I ADORE them! I’ve dreamt of these very wedges for years now, so I am really loving them.
The finishing touches to this outfit are:
tooled leather belt (thrifted in Nevada)
1930’s (?) burgundy sunglasses (thrifted)
hair scarf (my grandma’s)
wooden earrings with carved horses (vintage)
cactus felt pin (made by me)
burgundy tooled leather handbag (vintage shop in Arizona)
vintage basket purse (birthday gift from Mom)
It was a challenge keeping Herby (my adorable boxer) out of these photos, so I had to let her get in on a few at the end!
