Wardrobe Wednesday- 60s knits


This little jem of a sweater set was found smashed between horrible polyester shift dresses at the thrift store. I think I actually may have squealed with delight when I put it in the cart. And that was before I knew it would fit me!


I thought for sure it was destined for the shop, but on a whim, I threw it on and was surprised to see that it was another one of those made for me vintage numbers.


And the hat. Ah, the hat. I’ve gotten to know the shop ladies at the Cuyahoga Falls River Square district, and one of the vintage shop owners gave me a special deal on this one. I couldn’t believe it! I’ve come to discover that people who peddle vintage goods get excited when I’m excited about them. And amidst all of the excitement, my arms become loaded with dresses, hats, and gloves- yet I still walk out the door with more cash than I expected. I like to think of it as one vintage soul looking out for another.


Outfit details:


sweater set: thrifted (Canton, Ohio)

hat: vintage (Secret Past, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio)

gloves: Kohls department store

tights: Hue

shoes: etsy vintage

    Do you use a tripod? Or does someone else take your pictures for your Wardrobe Wednesdays?
    Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Krista! I used a tripod for this shoot, but sometimes my husband Phil takes them for me. Usually I dont get to see him until its dark outside, these days. So Ive been taking them myself. :)

    Blue is definitively your color :)

    The way you put your outfits together make things look great. I think a lot of people don’t accessorize or figure out how to wear clothes so they automatically probably though “ugly sweater dress” without doing what you do with your clothes to make it look wonderful!!
