At The Summit










Sure this ensemble feels a bit wintry, but it has already snowed several times here in Colorado so I feel like I can get away with it. Plus I just love wearing this Lilli Ann suit okay? Nothing, NOTHING, in my vintage collection can compare with the tailoring in this suit. How I wish I could have a Lilli Ann in every color, but alas...that would be a very expensive endeavor!

This suit actually does have some moth holes which I imagine is why I was able to pick it up for an absolute steal a few years ago. The damage is small and on the back of the collar where it cannot be seen so I feel like this suit has a lot of life left in it yet! This time I paired it with green for a bit more of a early winter vibe, it seems a bit more "holiday!" to me for whatever reason. The ivory accessories are the same ones I usually pair with this suit, but I have never styled it with green before which just goes to show how many colors can be paired with navy like this. In the past I have paired burgundy with this suit, as well as going for all ivory and faux fur once or twice too. What color should I pair with it next time?

I hope you all have or will be voting shortly if you are in the US! Tomorrow is the day!! This is not an election to skip, do that civic duty! I have to go finish spray painting a clothing rack soft brushed gold now for a few future videos. Stay warm everyone :)

  2. It's such a gorgeous suit - elegant but also very cosy-looking! You've given the photos a wintry touch too. We have all our eyes on your mid-terms... Kx

    1. Thank you! Midterms went okay, great for female candidates in many places which is awesome, but the way the lines are drawn made a huge (negative in my opinion) difference in which way things went in several races. I'll take any progress right about now though!

  4. With only the quickest glance at this suit you can tell it's something special! It fits you to perfection. I wonder whether trying red accessories would work or would it be too much? I'll most likely be up all night watching the election results all the way over here in the UK!

    1. Thank you Carol-Ann! I have done dark burgundy red in the past, but I'm sure I'll try true red too one day! :) http://theclosethistorian.blogspot.com/2016/11/golden-days.html

  5. That is a gorgeous suit! And proves the old maxim 'blue and green should never be seen' a total lie. It looks very wintry to me, possibly because of the glacial blue and green.

    1. Thank you Mim! I tend to dismiss all color rules these days, it's good to know rules so you can break them ;)
