A Vintage Find 1

I’ve been reading Delightfully Tacky lately. She is living my dream – driving around the country having wild adventures while wearing fabulous clothes. Seeing all her thrifted finds has given me the vintage bug, so I spent the better part of last night surfing Etsy on  a mad hunt for … well, I’m not really sure what I was looking for. But it’s fun looking and pretending that I can dress myself.

Anyway, this is a long preamble to set up this outfit – a vintage three piece suit from the 1960s.

Is anyone else crazy about this, or is it just me?

I love those puffed sleeves on the blouse. I love the color. I love that she probably wore it to work at an ad agency or while cleaning her fallout shelter or whatever it is people did in the 60s. I love the fact that a woman once wore this almost 50 years ago but it doesn’t look frumpy. The skirt could probably use some hemming, but it’s charming in its own way.

And I’m pretty sure Anthropologie will be making this for their spring line, but at a much higher price point. So, if it’s in your size, get it while you can.

    Not a fan of the vest, but love the colours and the fit!
