Vanity + Vintage #14 - Knit and Woven: Tactility

Ladyofashion Vintage
It's been so cold lately that I've been wearing plentiful chunky knits without a care of how they may look ... my neck has been completely wrapped up.  All I want is to be warm and comfortable. This scarf is one of my favourites and was hand knitted by my friend and fellow blogger KZ years ago. One of the best elements of this knit is its incredible length, which provides extreme versatility as an accessory.

From a tank to a shawl styled coat adornment I've been able to wear this scarf in numerous ways. This installment of Vanity + Vintage is inspired by men's (formal) frock coats of the Edwardian and Victorian period. I absolutely adore the the cut of this jacket (the very fitted bodice area and waist) along with the skirt fullness. It surely makes for an elaborate entrance and exit all on its own, and a statement for a daytime look especially if a windy climate is involved.

  39. Ummmm, I love a long coat right now! And I prefer lengthy wide scarves as well because it really broadens the amount of ways you can wear them. How sweet to be giftes something she made with her own 2 hands.
