I always wanted one of those beautiful 1940s knit skirt and blouse outfits but they are rarely flattering on my figure and tend to show off the lower belly pooch. I finally found a knit skirt that works for me. This 70s skirt was thrifted this summer and I've been waiting for the weather to cool enough to wear it. I paired it with a vintage crochet collar and this beautiful black celluloid 1930s brooch and one of my favorite scarves.

The scarf is one of those small ones that's really too small to wear in your hair so I bunched it up and pinned it to the side of my snood with a few small hat pins. Lovely!
