Ensemble du Jour

The Outfit
It's a clear but cold day and I'm feeling kind of vintage-y. I'm wearing a black scoop neck top, a swishy black skirt (both Target), Cuban heel stockings in nude and black and my new vintage brocade heels.

I wanted to add a piece that would tie in the shoes but also have a retro vibe too, so I'm wearing my very large silk rose pin. But rather than wear it up near my shoulder I have it pinned at waist level. It's about 5+ inches in diameter so this is very wearable. It would be great pinned to a belt or a ribbon used as a belt. I got mine in a store at Biltmore, but you can find them here.

The Focal Point
I'm so happy to be wearing my gorgeous shoes and vamped them up with the stockings. I love the back seam and the Cuban heel adds the different edge to them.

I'm ready to go out for cocktails and some Frank Sinatra.
