Suit Up


Hello all you doll-faced beauties! Remember when I talked about finding a great vintage shop a few days ago? Well, I found the most beautiful 1940's suit while there and even though it was a bit expensive, I had to try it on for fun. Well, we all know that's a bad idea because as soon as you see something on you, you're going to want to purchase it. Through my powers of persuasion I convinced Sean to let me have it as an early birthday present! I was so glad too, because I found out it was seriously on sale when I went to purchase it.


I had so much fun wearing it, and it will be wonderful to wear as separates as well.The asymmetrical buttons are in all in great condition, as is the embroidered beading at the hip-and it had it's original matching belt ahhh I was so giddy. I paired this with one of my favorite hats, which does need a bit of fixing, but I let that slide for a day. We went to take some photos at a park in town that has some interesting educational features for kids. This one in particular is called the "Whisper Shell." There is an identical one several yards away positioned exactly so that when one whispers into the middle your friend can hear you even from that far! It's a pretty neat gadget for sure.



The above photo shows the beautiful little clutch I picked up at the flea market a couple of weeks ago. I'm always giddy when I find one with special details. This one had an attached coin purse (wish several little stud earrings inside!), as well as pockets specifically designed for your mirror and lipstick. How perfect! Purses just aren't made like that anymore.
Below I'm whispering into the shell! I kind of felt like an old radio songstress. Now that would be a dream job if only I could make my time machine work!


Have a simply divine Friday everyone!

God Bless,
KJA

Also, some food for thought:
Galatians 6:8
 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Hello Miss Vintage! What a lovely find, you should have known you were doomed as soon as you decided to try it on. But it's always a pleasant surprise to find that it's on sale at the till!

Your hair is so long, I'm having the envy on many levels right now!
