I can't pass up a suit in my measurements, I just love suits! Nothing ever feels as chic or instantly imparts a sense of power so easily as nice tailoring. To be fair though, this shade of blue does make me feel a bit like a flight attendant some how!
I paired my new blue suit with grey accessories, which I may have acquired just to match the trim on the jacket (#shopaholic). The gloves are even fleece lined which was a nice surprise! Especially since these grey pumps turned out to be quite uncomfortable, being merely cheapy shoes from Amazon, but I am still in the market for nice grey heels. I have come to wish that Royal Vintage Shoes offered their lovely Marilyn pumps in every color, they could release five more shades and I'd buy a pair in each. How about dark navy leather, brown faux lizard skin, grey suede, and perhaps an ivory leather? Just some initial suggestions ;) The handbag I have here is another new addition and reminds me of a classic car. I feel like many vintage handbags are relatively under-priced in the market right now, they are so cute and fun to collect!
I will be turning my attention to sewing some suiting soon, starting with a check grey jacket that has been on my to do list for over a year! I already have the skirt finished and waiting. I've got some brown wool on the way from Mood Fabrics too so I can make myself a brown suit too after failing to find a vintage one in my size (impatient much?).
Back to the holiday rush at work today, I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
