I had always planned to make a black suit, I still may someday make a black suit, but I could never make a black suit this nice. I sew with a constant undercurrent of impatience, ensuring I could never put this much attention into the tailoring details. Those 40's tailors sure knew what they were doing! In this suit I feel equal parts old Hollywood film star and Rachel from Blade Runner, which is precisely the best way a suit can make a girl feel as far as I know.
I paired the suit with a pair of green gloves, my peacock jewelry, and a vintage art deco handbag for the #truevintageootd. I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw it, I mean it basically looks like a perfume bottle with its lovely Lucite topper above the clasp. Too cute to pass up!
I don't think I will ever get over my suit luck that weekend, adding these to my closet was such a privilege and I look forward to caring for and wearing both for years to come :)
