Suits My Fancy
This is a bit belated, but the 1940s editorial in the September issue of Vogue really made me want to wear a suit. Specifically, a broad-shouldered, peplum-waisted suit. Of course, I have no occasion for a suit nor do I own one, but a girl can play dress up, right? I found two blazer and skirt combos in my closet that are sort of suit-like. Here is the first of the two. I resisted the urge to throw in a bright color since the examples in the magazine are neutral, classic and pretty understated. Sorry about the dark picture. I had the choice after work to go straight home and catch the last bit of daylight or go thrifting. You know how I feel about thrifting. And, yes, I'm wearing the scarf AGAIN!
