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.
I also found a pair of darling vintage shoes from the 1930's from Adored Vintage. 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!
As far as accessories go, you wouldn't need much with this dress. 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!
Also, for those warm toes in the winter, I included a beautiful pair of hand-felted woolen slippers. 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.
