70’s Suede

Nothing quite like a suede shearling coat. Especially when you find one from the 1970’s, that is suuuuper 1970’s. Honestly, I couldn’t help but play dress-up with this one. I wanted to see how she moved and if she ‘worked well with others‘. Β Ya know what I mean? ;)

Let’s be real, if you put on a suede coat…you’re basically rocking it no matter how you’re wearing it. I mean, it’s a suede coat. That itself makes you feel like an instant rock-star. And bonus that this one has the faux fur collar to up the ante just a smidge, and reallllly reign in that 70’s vibe.

This scarf has definitely had a great ROI. I can’t count the number of times I’ve used it–and for different things….in the hair, around the neck, as a belt, a bracelet….the greatest part is that it’s 100% hand dyed silk. And bursting with vibrancy.

I have a confession. I have a tad bit of an obsession with white blouses. I don’t think I’ll share how many versions of a white blouse I own but the thing is, they’re always a fine option. For basically any occasion. Dress them up or down and they’ll always be loyal to you.

I made this particular white blouse a while back and boy, was it a bit of a challenge. That seems to happen when you decide to manipulate commercialized patterns. But hey, the end result was exactly as I had hoped…so that made the struggle worth while.

Bishop sleeves are some of my faves. The silhouette is just awesome and totally flattering.

Also made this vest over the summer to use up some last bits of velvet. The color is this really unique hybrid color–like a greyish blue/green. A great neutral shade.

As I’m sitting here finishing this post and looking back at the snowy pictures…I can’t help but chuckle a little because when we shot these photos I intended to hold onto them for a bit before posting. Little did I know it would be a balmy 65 degree February day when I decided to post. So, today the suede coat is hanging out inside. Perhaps the lighter weight suede jacket is a better option for the day. After all, I would still like to feel like a rock-star ;)
