Sunday Best Retro
For the first time, I am actually posting my Sunday best on Sunday Best and All the Rest! It's about time, eh? ;) Yesterday, I wore this retro inspired outfit to church ( though later I had to change for an ultimate Frisbee game). It was modeled after the demure, ladylike styles of the 1940's and 50's.
This entire outfit was actually built around a "new-to-me" pleated wool skirt. For only $5, I bought the Forever 21 piece from a friend who was selling it. My tank top, blouse, cardigan and belt are all from second hand stores. The only thing in my ensemble that was purchased brand new is the pair of leather heels!
At first, I was not going to include the belt in this outfit, but the colors seemed too bland. When I wear neutral colors, I often like to have a pop of color. This is when the belt often comes in handy. Here, it picked up on the red stripes in the skirt and tied the whole outfit together.
By the way, I would like to mention that this look was partly inspired by the Boyer Family Singers' blog. The gals there have fun retro style. If you haven't read them before, check out their button on my sidebar. --->
I hope to post with more of a schedule from here on out. My goal is to post once in the earlier half of the week and once in the later half. Achieving that goal is the hard part! I have a tutorial planned for the latter part of this week, so that should be an encouragement for me to get to it.
In closing today's post, I would like to thank my mom for taking the photographs of me for my blog, and helping to proofread my posts. Without her, this blog would have more typos and odd self portraits. :)
Until next time, have a lovely week!
