It’s fun to mix vintage and modern styles, and to mix casual with dressy pieces. I wasn’t trying to do that today, but that’s how it turned out. I’m not one to lay out my clothes the night before, but rather to stand in front of my closet with one favorite piece in hand, then try to add joy.
|Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!|
I started with my newly-thrifted wool grey skirt (similar). It’s practically a mini by my standards, but I love the shape and the soft wool texture. My 1940’s fancy wool jacket makes a great topper, bringing in color and sophistication, and a nice waist-defining shape.
For whimsy, I wore my pussycat tights, gifted by Zohara. Without the jacket the outfit turns pleasantly casual: sailor-striped tee (similar), and funky octopus necklace from Sheila of Ephemera. Chunky boots (sim) for the finish, and I’m wearing my own bio hair today!
