I have been blogging for a few years now and it has never crossed my mind to use a prop in photos, until today. Thanks to my boyfriend, I was reminded of a really great vintage chair we found at a thrift store. I have something planned for it in the future, but for now it will maintain its sunny yellow color.
My outfit today was a layering success. I started off with a simple button down blouse that has a tunic length. On top of that is a vintage wool overcoat of neutral tones that is for sale, see below. My hat is a cloche, a bell shaped hat which gained popularity in the 1920s. These are rarely seen today, but I am hoping that changes as they are very feminine and flattering.
My slouch pants, you know that I love them, have a spotted appearance that adds depth. To finish up the look, I am wearing ankle booties. You cannot see detail in these photos, but they are faux pony hair, which adds another form of texture to my outfit.
