Sunday Snag – Steal My Snag!

 Retro Styling Tips #retro #fashion #style #vintage #1950s #1960s

Today I'm starting a short series within my normal Sunday Snags where because I'm entirely too cold to go outside and because my itty bitty apartment space can't accommodate photoshoots I'll be sharing ways to steal my snags! Did you get all that?! Haha! Basically, my toes are just too chilly to do outfit posts at the present. There have been some favorite Snags (based upon comments and my own personal faves) that I thought you might like for yourself! So I'm bringing you a way to steal the look or at least the main part of the look. For the first round, I'm bringing you options to recreate my "Picking Pansies" look that I styled earlier in the autumn (see entire post here). The main star of the show was my 1960s cardigan sweater with a distinctly retro styling. I thought this may be a good place to start seeing as many of you already have jeans to pair with a cute cardi.

You can click on any of the photos below to be taken to the shop selling the item.

 Cropped Knits
These two have that cute and flirty feel like mine but with longer sleeves which is perfect for the colder weather right now.

Grandpa Length and Grandma Chic
The one on the left is for those that can't do the cropped length. On the right is a medium length with cute crochet work on the bust (great for small busts as it adds dimension).

  1. Those sweaters are seriously fantastic!

  2. I adore vintage type sweaters, these are all so charming!

  3. I love this idea! I'm with you on going outside!

  4. I love the little letterman sweater. I'd totally put my boy in it. :)

    I have a vintage crop cardi, but it's decidedly 80's, not old enough to be cool again. I'm saving it for 'some day.'

  5. Amazing sense of style. I love your preferences.

  6. Love the post, such cute sweaters! Thank you so much for the feature!

  7. they are all fantastic, but I really love the black with cherries one.

  8. What a fresh, fabulous post idea! I can wholeheartedly relate to your weather and lack of suitable indoor photo shoot locations - the same rings true for us come winter here in Canada, too. I don't mind venturing out if it's only a few below, but when we're talking -15, -20C, or colder, it's time to stay indoors and daydream about springtime ensembles! :)

  9. Hi Jamie! I like the idea of this new series of posts. The cropped knits are all nice but the embellished in white is my fav, too cute!:) Kisses dear! xo

  10. Pretty lip color!

  11. Great selection of sweaters & a serious stroke of genius to avoid the cold!

  12. you know for such a basic, staple item i actually find it pretty difficult to find knitted tops that i really love. it's just hard to find cute cropped ones that fit properly and are nice and tight, i've got a few but i'd love to collect more over time, they just don't seem to be easy to find!
