Vanity + Vintage #13

Modern Girl, The New Bohemian:
I've been wearing this non-stop! I purchased this hat about a month ago to add to my collection, which seems to put me in a hybrid of reverie every time I wear it out; between a new-age western dame and an arbiter of mystic fashions. I bought it because I (loved it, and) realised that I didn't own a large-brimmed solid brown hat. Believe it or not, this style in particular, has quickly become a favourite. I'm certain it has to do with the enormous brim that may be contoured to my liking. 

Enter: the vintage clutch! This clutch is significant to me because when I acquired it when I wasn't actually seeking anything for myself. I had a list of items to find for a past styling job, I was so focused on the mission at hand that this little treasure almost passed me by. 


However, I did hear the fashion angels sing in a soft ballad - a faint whisper calling my name, yet with a guilt-free intention and only to make its presence known. So, I turned around to glance at the caramel colour, touched it twice, and was captured by the woven details. Then, I began to open and close it as if I needed to get the maximum use out of it in seconds ... this lead to the instant confirmation that I'd be taking this clutch home ... and I did!


With the volatile climate in pretty much every location, I decided to wear cable-knit tights and take the new hat out for the world to view. It seemed to be a plausible reason to wear it once more. The next few work days were followed by donning long gloves and a tailored blazer of course. But, for now, I'm enjoying these threads.
 A few items I'm loving: Pumpkin colour, forever Fair isle knits, plums, and golds.


The goods: Yellow beaded necklace, lucite beaded pendant-gifted, Oxfords-F21= I know can't believe it either, Ha!, Retro dress-Thrifted, Leather clutch-vintage shop, Scarf-c/o Goorin Brothers, Hat-Steinmart, Knit tights-Anthropologie.
