in like a chimera

I had planned to post these last week when it hit 65 degrees, but the temperature plummeted the next day and ruined my whole “in like a lamb” theme. So here I am – better late than never, but still pretty damn late.

Not to mention that I already took these photos almost three weeks ago and I haven’t taken any since. It’s the end-of-season doldrums, I know, but that doesn’t make it suck any less. You’ve already seen all my winter clothes. I just want some straw hats and cotton skirts. I thought getting a head start on my spring/summer sewing would cheer me up, but all it’s done is tantalize: I’ve got a closet full of airy blouses I can’t yet wear. Boo hiss.

I’m also moving in less than two weeks (just down the block, but still a pain), so my blog might be quiet a little longer. Rest assured, though, that it’s not by choice.

Dress: ’40s, Old Gold

Coat: ’50s, Barge Canal Market

Gloves: Mainly Vintage

Hat: flea market

Everything else: thrifted

Author: skye

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.

  1. This dress may be my most favorite thing I’ve seen on your blog ever! It’s just amazing! Also, this coat is spectacular!


  2. Living for this dress! I love the different flecks of color, which really brightens up the navy. The green and baby blue accessories do a great job making this feel a little springlike, which is always a nice feeling when you’ve got the “end of season doldrums,” as you put it.
