I love the fuzzy skirt, and the color matching here is so do-able.
I love these matching ensembles!
Vintage knitting pattern, 1950s
J’adore this look of belting a scarf or stole! So glamorous.
I’m into more warm vintage fashions currently, since I’ll be abroad in Ireland for the spring semester and need to change the way I do vintage! So that’s today’s theme.
bethany1994 asked: American Horror Story got 1830s fashion right!
I haven’t seen that one, but I’m glad to hear it! :)

I don’t post housewear enough. Stunning!
soprano-christine asked: is it bad that I'm nit picky over TV and movie's historical costumes? Victorian costumes particularly. I feel as if they just make something 'old' looking and put it off as Victorian
No, it’s not bad at all! I feel like that’s almost inevitable once you actually learn what the real clothing looks like. I absolutely have issues with this - people joke that I ruin films and shows for myself since I get so upset over shoddy costuming. Don’t worry, you’re among friends in this!
