Check and Piping


Two weekends ago, my friend Taylor and I went to see The Blob at the Redford and somehow these pictures never made it onto my blog! I believe I mentioned this blouse and skirt set in my last post. I got it at this fab estate sale two weekends ago. I was so excited to wear it for that night that I rushed home to wash it and have it dry in time for my outing that evening. It's handmade and cut on the bias. The buttons are little clear bows....so adorable!! I fell in love with the collar and just had to have this set. I knew that that weekend would probably be the only chance I would get to wear it since the weather was starting to change. But, living in Michigan...you never know what the day or week will bring. (It was in the 40's today and next week it's suppose to get to the mid 60's) Maybe I will get one more spin out of it before the snow comes!

I love Taylor's coat. She got it at modcloth last winter. Oh...and can you see Pumpkin trying to get into the picture?? :)

Before I end my post, I want to ask all my lovely readers their thoughts on something. I have been thinking about doing a weekly series on my blog in relation to vintage films and the clothing in them. I am thinking about calling it Film Fashion Friday. My idea is to talk about one or more films each week that were made between the 30's and the 60's (with the occasional current day film with period clothing) that have great clothing in them. All of the films that I will use will be available on DVD, VHS, or through Netflix; that way you will have easy access to them if you are interested in viewing them. I want to feature films that don't get talked about a lot, but showcase some really stellar fashions. Let me know what you think. If I get a good enough response I will start the series next Friday.

Hi Em,
You are meant to wear vintage clothes! Love that outfit!
Happy weekend.
Warmly,

Emily.......the black & white checked is one of the best. I think Deb's right, you were meant to wear vintage. You have an old soul like your mom.

Love,
Me

Sounds like a fun idea... I surprisingly haven't seen a lot of old films (mainly just the popular ones) so I'd like some suggestions (especially for the fashions!)
