I know I've shared my flannel-lined jeans with you; now here is my summer-friendly version. These, too, are vintage '50s jeans, only they're super light-weight clam diggers with adorable nautical-esque striped details! I found them at a consignment store for $15, not such a bad price. I'd been dreaming about a pair of Freddie's for ages, but the ol' student budget wouldn't allow it... and now I'm all set!
Even though I prefer to wear dresses and heels when I go out, I live in rural Vermont, and such outfits are really impractical for everyday life. I have outdoor chores, horses to care for and ride, long hikes with my dog through the dense forests and boggy fields... not something I'd like to subject my vintage frocks to!!
Isn't this Victorian girl portrait the best?? I got it for free! Unfortunately there's no room on my bedroom walls for it, and my dad won't let me put it in the living room. So for now she lives in our garage-turned-workshop.
This 1940s classic gabardine Western shirt is one of my very favorite items of clothing; the embroidery is of acorns and oak leaves, sewn with silvery thread!
♥ Have a great weekend!!! ♥
