The Suit

Last year I found a great red suit at Goodwill for $7.99, and didn't wear it at all. Monday we had summery temperatures, so I decided to try it out! It's 100% silk, something I did not realize until I got it home (love it when that happens). I paired it with an interesting yellow and black feathered hat I bought for a few dollars at a garage sale years ago.

*Ahem*...Please excuse the clutter next to me! I think I was going for a late '30s, or very early '40s look. Great hat+nice suit+vintage hairstyle=a vintage look!

Wore my hair in "victory rolls"; they're a bit difficult to see.

Inside of the hat: "Adolfo II"..."100% WOOL, 'Excello' "

I love the black feathers in the back of the hat.


  1. I love the red in the suit! It fits you well.

  2. That is a beautiful suit, Tia. And that hat is FABULOUS. I wish I were as bold as you. :>

  3. Hello :)

    Just found your blog and I'm rather glad I did.

    Your hair looks gorgeous, wish my hair was long enough to do that style..

    I followed your blog and can't wait to come back! Hope you like mine and want to follow me back?
