I love 1940's jumpers (sweaters) with their slim fit and puffed shoulders. I love the pattern on this green one (I've a Norwegian cardigan I look forward to wearing when it is really cold) and Rita is looking pretty good there on the right, with her matching bow! I love all the colour combinations we can do now, with all the extra accessories of winter. I've got a few late 1950's and early 1960's fitted wool dresses, including a black one. I love how this one is brightened with the pastel pink, yellow and blue touches! Black and pale pink is an all time favourite colour combo of mine. And I love this peach and dark red, and the blue-grey with the yellow shoes. Ah, and closed toe shoes! I am so ready for those. My new mantra when buying shoes at the moment is "closed toe closed toe ". I bought some new shoes last week and, um, they were NOT closed toe, but they are for a special occasion and more on that very soon! I am looking forward to stockings again. I need to stock up – pardon the pun, that was not intended – for a change! – on my nylons, but I've put last year's somewhere and need to find them first! I am LOVING that the reasonable, fit-for-humans weather means I can wear powder with my makeup. I recently got a great new powder – I'll have to share that too, soon! I love this big bow hat. And hats are yet another thing I can now wear! I am even looking forward to it being really, really cold. We won't get snow in Melbourne but we do get plenty of it in the mountains an hour or so away, and this year I am going to play in it. I don't mind being cold when I'm outside as long as there is a warm indoors to look forward to afterwards. If there's an open fireplace, hot chocolate and maybe a bit of whiskey I'll be a very happy lady! Mmm, black and pastel blue again here, it seems to be a thing for me at the moment! Will definitely wear these colours together soon. I love that big black snuggly coat, and the hat. I love the 1940s for winter!
How amazing is this orange hat, too? I love the jewelery mixed with the gloves. And those coats on the right are perfect. Rugging up in a beautiful coat, pulling on a hat and going for a walk in a tree filled park, crunching over their discarded leaves ("soooo last season, dahling...") and breathing out little frosty clouds... I can't wait for winter!
