Casual Saturday Afternoon

a

photos by Tom b.

- boy's coat from the 1964 Winnie the Pooh Collection at Sears (the tag inside is very specific - ha, ha!)
- vintage Lee jeans
- thrifted 80s camp t-shirt
- vintage Ferragamo oxford flats
- vintage Coach purse
- vintage wool beret

When I posted these photos on Flickr yesterday I got a comment that it was weird (in a good way) to see me wearing jeans. I have to admit it was weird (in a good way) to be wearing them. I honestly can't remember the last time I wore a pair. I think I just hadn't found a pair that was as comfortable to me as wearing a pair of tights and a dress. Somehow they always manage to make me feel a bit claustrophobic. I actually have a little stack of vintage jeans that I've brought home from thrift stores hoping they would finally be the pair but always ended up being not quite right. I should put them all in the shop! These are by LEE and are the perfect amount of broken in and high waisted and everything I was hoping for.

OK, must run now. Rosemary's Baby is on HBO and I'm busy reveling in her perfect, perfect wardrobe in that movie. That deserves a post of its own!

I love that jacket. What happened to those skinny jeans you had? No more?

Style Artisan said...

When I first saw that jacket, I fell in love with its cheerful colors. Then when I read that it was boy's Winnie the Pooh coat from 1964, I fell in love even more. How amazing and charming!

It is strange but nice to see bloggers who don't normally wear jeans, sport them.

I love those jeans on you! They really are a perfect fit!

Jenny (Fashion for Writers) said...

Amazing that you are wearing a Winnie the Pooh coat! I have a Mickey Mouse jacket somewhere stashed in my mom's house. And Rosemary's baby taps into my worst fears as a woman but she wears some amazing peter pan collars and the coat she wears to go out to meet the dude who's about to warn her, and where she looks like a sickly consumptive, is amazing amazing amazing!

love,
Jenny

Violet Folklore said...

Indeed it is nice to see you change up your usual outfit template a bit! What an awesome jacket, I've got to research that label a bit...

Rachel C. said...

those are seriously the perfect pair of jeans.

Cynthia said...

You shine in this outfit! I really like it.
You're right about Rosemary's wardrobe in Rosemary's baby. The first time I watched the movie was because I saw a nice dress on TV and I keep on watching until I realize how horrible the story is. The powder colors of her dresses really contrast with the nightmare she's in. It makes the story even more awful.

Haha! I love the winnie the pooh coat! What a perfect plaid...

Winnie the Pooh jacket?! That's too awesome!

lunastarshine said...

I just finished reading all the Winnie the Pooh stories, which first made me want to live in the forest and eat nothing but hunny, and then made me cry uncontrollably at the end. Seriously, it's so sad. But your coat would be perfect for those blustery days in the hundred acre woods.

I am amazed by this coat! What a find!
