Thursday Thrill – A Chill in the Air

Today's thrill also has a chill! The weather is turning quite a bit colder now. I haven't even gotten to fully enjoy the mild fall yet and I'm rarely ready for the actual cold of winter to begin. I'm always consistently surprised by it. I'll walk outside in the morning and feel shocked that it's cold out even though I know that it should be, given that it is the middle of November. I'm a bundler though and am not particularly fond of being chilly. Today's items could change my mind though. I rarely find vintage items for winter. I really don't know why that is either. You can find coats and capes, but you don't see lots of cold weather clothing. I was surprised when I stumbled across this sweater dress from Le Mollusque. It is a cozy vintage wool piece in snowflake blue handmade in Denmark probably in the late 1960's or early 1970's. This is my favorite sleeve length too! It isn't bulky, too long, or too short. The 3/4 length is classy and feminine and I love it.

Taupe grey oxfords get an interesting touch with detailed cut-outs along the side and french blue satin ribbon tie up fronts. Again, not my size or I would be fumbling out the cash as we speak!

I wouldn't wear a bracelet or a ring with prongs because I would be scared of pulling threads from the knit. Instead, these adorable vintage Sarah Coventry cameo clip-ons would be perfect. Add on a non-thread pulling ring like my vintage geometric "Paper Moon" ring, and you are set for hot cocoa and a roaring fire!

I would toss off the heels when I got home and snuggle into a pair of these comfy and rather lovely pair of merino slip ons with felted rose detailing.

  5. Love the cameo earrings. I had a pair from my grandmother when I was little and lost one. I've always wanted a new pair but have never splurged. Maybe this is the year.

  28. There is such an appealing, delicate, soulful beauty to winter and its soft palette. The older I get, the more I adore it with each passing year - especially if one has gorgeous items like these vintage pieces to wear.
