Llama Sweater!

I was lucky to be on Twitter when Small Earth Vintage posted a photo for the sweater she had just listed in her Etsy shop. As soon as i clicked, and the photo unveiled itself for me, i knew i had to have the sweater. i visited the Small Earth Vintage etsy shop and into the shopping cart this beauty went.

At the end of last week my Llama sweater arrived in the mail. She is even more fun in person than she is on a computer screen. I love the purple, the collar, and the feminine cut to the sweater.

Here is a close up look at the llamas. The sweater is vintage – from the 70s. The llama sweater arrived in the mail at the perfect time due to the temperature turning to a bitter cold where i am.

i love you llama sweater!

i love you llama sweater!

I decided to wear my sweater over the weekend to help combat the cold. It worked. Did I mention how much i love the collar?! I just feel so much more sophisticated with a popped sweater collar than, say, a sweatshirt.

3. FemaleHysteria  I adore the way the fur along the collar of this coat looks as though it is a scarf that then gets tucked inside the coat. ANother great silhouette to wear with dresses.

4. allencompany If i lived somewhere where the temperature does not drop to below freezing i would get this delightful coat. It is impossible to fall for the charms of the string with pom poms collar.

Playsuit Perfection

I have been on a search for the perfect playsuit for two years. While i love the 40’s and 50’s inspired playsuits, i had my heart set on a twenties style bathing suit to use as a playsuit. I kept searching and searching and then i came across Ouma’s etsy shop and saw the playsuit i had been searching for…the only problem was that it came in horizontal stripes.

I contemplated getting the stripe playsuit. I love stripes and the suit fit the bill of the silhouette i was searching for. But my hips held me back. Do i really want to highlight the areas of my body that are larger than the other parts? Luckily, Ouma does custom orders and i decided to see if i could get a black playsuit made.

Ouma replied back immediately and aided me in making the decision to make a black and pink playsuit. I gave her my measurements and in a couple weeks a package arrived to my door and inside was the cutest playsuit i had ever seen in person!

The Cuteness starts when you look at the back!
