New Retro Clothes

I don't buy much new clothes, and it is not a complaint, just a fact. I think it is due to my style. I rarely find something I like, but on the reverse I can brag that I never make any mistakes, because I know what I like. Since I know my style so well, also means I love my clothes for years, and only discard it when I get tired of it. In fact, I have not bougth any new clothes for two years, except what DH gave me in January last year.

But a few weeks ago I visited Rude in Copenhagen. Several colleagues had recommended me the shop, since they could see it was my style. The shop sells reproduced fifties clothing, which I love. And I was lucky they had a sale going, so I took a huge pile of clothes with me in the changing room, but something was wrong. The dresses were too tight around my breast and too loose at the waist, so I had to go almost empty handed away - except form this lovely lambswool cardigan, which DH found for me:

Grey is my basic colour and I love the rhinestones in many different colours:
They add colour in a good way, but do not glitter more than I can wear it at my job. And it is soft and warm to wear.

Well, having finally made it all the way to Copenhagen, I suggested we went for a walk, although it was bitterly cold and snowy. We passed by Rockahula, which I had checked out on the internet. Here I found much more, and this grey skirts fits me perfectly:
It is from Collectif and have a hint of purple, so it looks really great with one of my dark purple cardigans, which I haven't used for some time.

And I had a red pencil skirt on my wish list, so I was happy to find this, and it was only 45 dollars:

It is from Voodoo Vixen, and look at the pleats at the back, sooo nice:
The grey cardigan at the top is a lovely match.

Ooh, it is dangerous to let me loose in a shop like this, since everything is my style. :) This fabulous dress reminds me very much of Joan Harris from Mad Men:
It is from Daisy Dapper, and just the fact that I looked slim, was an excuse to buy it. The nice lady in the shop spontaniously said that it looked very good on me. And no, I will not pose in it, since I am both old and very unphotogenical.

I have saved the best for last - a real vintage beauty from the fifties, which I simply had to buy:
It is from Trunk of Dresses, which is my favourite dress shop on Etsy.

The shop sells vintage dresses, but they rarely fit my ordinary size medium. Normally, they are size small or extra-small, ough. So I didn't believe my own eyes seeing the measurements were perfect on this beauty. Look at the details at the neck:

And the fabric is twisted at the waist and the pockets are fantastic:
I cannot wait for it to arrive in the mail. Even son said it was lovely.

And again this year DH surprised me by saying he wanted to give me my new clothes. He's really an OK husband! ;)

  1. That is a terrific point and one I think about sometimes as well. By not buying many modern items, let alone trendy ones (I honestly can't even remember the last time I bought an item of clothing because it was suddenly the flavour of the month, so to speak), I rarely make fashion purchases that I regret. Sure, a few vintage pieces have ended up not working for me once they arrived and I actually got to try them on, but even there, I loved the item in principle and would never have regretted buying it had it fit right.

    All of your new pieces are smashing!!! That 50s plaid dress is out of this world lovely! The neckline is such a stellar, eye-catching detail.
