For years I've been a dress girl. It always seems like the easiest way to get ready to go out is to throw on a dress and run out the door. There's no mixing or matching and dresses always seem more comfortable than pants. But lately I've been leaning more towards separates: skirts and blouses that is. Right now what I'd really like to find are pretty tops like these from the 20's and 30's to mix and match with skirts. It occurred to me that all of these examples are knits so perhaps a knitting class is in order. This coming from a girl that once attempted to knit a scarf... an attempt that resulted in one long wonky scarf that never saw the light of day. I don't think it's my forte. So... I suppose I'll have to keep my fingers crossed that I'll get lucky an find something at a vintage store or flea market instead. It doesn't seem to me that many of these types of pieces have survived the years so I'm afraid I may be on the hunt for quite some time. But I suppose that's half the fun!
