1930s gloves – and pants!


I never, ever wear pants (trousers) but... here it is! I got these about 18 months ago, and it was just never the right time to wear them, until now. I do like the very high waist and soft shape which tapers at the ankle (now doesn't that sounds flattering) and I love the check. And I really quite like wearing them, especially with my 1930s green gloves. However, I just spent some time going through my dresses from the 1930s – 1960s, and am looking forward to wearing them very soon. I have also been working on alterations for some later dresses... so I will be back in a dress very, very soon!

I love the shape of those pants so classic and they flatter you really well. I think I'll be getting into a pair of these this Winter. How great is it that it's been cold enough to wear gloves!

Pretty Little Pictures: thanks! I love these shoes too, I wore them allll last winter, I hope they last trhough this one too :)

Krista: thanks! Cool, new pants! And I love the cold snap – although if I was being picky I'd maybe ask for it a little warmer for the next few weeks ;)

Those pants are wonderful, I really love them! I've been searching for a pair like that, but I haven't found one yet. Ah, they look so good on you. :-)

Well, I'm a pants kinda girl! So, I love them!! They look really lovely on you. Love the gloves and the mustard scarf. In fact there are lots of colours I love in this post and would really adore wearing the clothes!!

For some reason, this outfit reminds me of a 1930s aviatrix or something. Very awesome. :D

sueper said...

looks great on you - I'm also one of those girls that almost never wear pants and it even feels strange when you then actually get to wear them!

Wow. I love the pants! I don't like wearing pants much either. I owe ONE pair of jeans, and it's not even jeans. It's like jeans-tights. I only have them for my job. But I'd totally wear those!

Those pants are so flattering and pretty!

Erika said...

The pants looks just great on you! I'm not a huge fan of pants either, but you sure rock that look! The gloves are beautiful as well. I love wearing gloves! One of the best things with the change in seasons, although for me it's the other way around, we've just gone from too cold to perfect "hat and gloves-weather" =)

mary van note said...

great pants! you make me want to scour any thrift store I can find for some TROUSERS!

Louise said...

I love those pants. Very jealous. And it is so hard to find thrifted pants too!

Closet said...
