cardigan - Milly, dress - Forever 21, necklace - The Bay, belt - Banana Republic, shoes - Nine West
Are you getting tired of the digging in my closet posts yet?
Here is yet another outfit made almost entirely from neglected pieces. The sweater was a sample sale find from several years ago. I should have taken a detail shot so you can see, but it has these darling little flower button closures on the cardigan. I also love the large pointelle knit and the scalloped edging.
The dress was purchased back in spring 2006, and makes me feel so girly and pretty that I can forgive its unfortunate polyester content. I haven't worn it much lately because it had a longer hemline which threw me off a bit. The hemlines have risen quite a bit over the last two years, and I feel matronly in anything that isn't above the knee. A quick jaunt with my sewing machine last night has fixed that dilemna, and now it's the perfect length.
It's snowing today, so I had to trade in these darling heels for a pair of sturdy black boots. But let's just pretend I wore these heels out instead because I think they made the perfect completer to this vintage inspired outfit.
