I’m wearing a vintage
Christmas Winter sweater, because it’s still winter, regardless of what 73-degree-California would have you believe. I just noticed that the red shapes pattern across the sweater isn’t as symmetrical as it should be. WTF 1940s people? Between the sweater and shoes I’m wearing blue drop-looped wool trousers, and stripey socks.
I’ve always been fond of recycling bowling shoes as casual vintage wear. With leather soles, they hold up MUCH better than 70+ year old rubber on the bottom of sneakers, AND they make fun dance shoes!
Here’s another pair of bowling shoes, matching my floors. Contrasting laces make them fun & easy to match with another brownish-red item. Bowling shoes commonly have a suede patch on the right toe; I’ve never found this to be an issue (or even noticeable) when walking or dancing in them.
Monica is wearing a blue 40’s style blouse she made using a reproduction calico print based on a Wearing History pattern, and a navy wool pencil skirt.
