That's the thing about a black suit jacket you know, you can wear it with everything. This time I paired it with a grey suit skirt I stole from my mom's closet long ago. The skirt is from the 1980's, but the jacket screams 1940's all the way down to its expertly constructed covered buttons.
I wore this amazing black felt tilted hat with my plaid suit a while back, but here it is transformed with a very full white ostrich feather. I am a big fan of ostrich feathers all around, probably because I am so used to wearing them in my hair for 18th century costuming! I built on the white in my hat by wearing my white gloves as well and unfortunately I don't have a grey scarf (I'll just have to find one!) currently so I'm wearing a pale sage green patterned one here to bring some of the mid tone of my skirt up to my neck. I am always working to improve my styling skill set, mostly on things like balance with colors and tones. Lastly I pinned on a favorite brooch of mine for some sparkle too, a girl cant go wrong with a bit of sparkle!
It has been oddly warm here lately, lulling me into a longing for spring fashions. I'm afraid as soon as I pull out a straw hat or pretty floral my world will be doused in sudden snowfall. Luckily I leave for California on Wednesday evening and can live out my spring fashion fantasies in the land of sun and palm trees. Is it perhaps time to say farewell to winter already? I don't mind, you see I have many a new straw hat to show you after hoarding them up all fall and winter...I'm just a magpie for straw!
