the velveteen habit

Forgive my absence! I have been having quite a hectic week, with a flurry of quizzes and papers before we were let free for Thanksgiving break, and a rather inconvenient little cold as well. Now I have a whole week at my disposal, so that's good. Here is a li'l outfit post for you.




 1950s "Shipmates" velvet cigarette pants, 1910s shirtwaist, department store oxfords

My trusty li'l velvet pants have been seeing a lot of wear lately; they're great, I feel like Little Lord Fauntleroy in them! That is a good thing, in my book. Later on I switched out the '10s taffeta shirtwaist for a [slightly] sturdier '40s silk blouse and '20s embroidered jacket.



I'm sorry these are such terrible photographs, my camera does not take low light well. Anyway, in conclusion, 1. velvet trousers are nice and 2. you CAN have a giant '40s front roll even with bangs. I teased my fringe and voila, built-in rat! This is such a revelation!
