To make a very long story short, a huge array of plans went south over the weekend, including my birthday plans. Complications with headaches and last minute necessary events happened and ultimately Patrick rescheduled my birthday celebrations. But the one thing that did go very well was a small tea hosted by Solanah of Vixen Vintage. She baked a few of us gals delicious treats and brewed tea as we enjoyed a peaceful afternoon of chatting and kitties. The afternoon was so much of a delight, I forgot to take pictures of the afternoon, except my outfit!
A few days prior to the tea I picked up these fabulous Lucite handles at Antique Alley and promptly went home, pulled out some barkcloth I had also purchased at the Alley ages ago, and whipped together a purse! And I couldn’t resist bringing it to the tea, so I revolved this whole outfit around it.
What I love so much about the fabric is that it allows me to incorporate brown (a color I have a lot of) as a spring color, which I did with this glorious 40s jacket.
