Snapped this Ginger Grrl a while back all dolled up as a "Cherry Blossom Girl." Tracie is quite fun to photograph and looks great in vintage! Here she is again, looking a bit more contemporary, but you know what? (what?) Half this outfit IS vintage, and it's the best bits of her entire look.
Her top is a peach of a find, a lovely vintage bed jacket, with quilted cuffs and collar. Only these days, it seems a waste to confine it to the bedchamber, as it is perfect for looking adorable while running some errands. And that incredible bag is vintage too. The handbag belongs to our visiting model, and this Citizen had some serious bag envyover it.
Tracie had a sweet story behind it too: it once belonged to her beloved grandma who was an avid knitter. This was once one of her many knitter's bag, holding her latest knitting projects, some yarn and those knitting sticks (which I'm sure is not the correct term for them.) But in this day and age, a former bed-jacket and retired craft bag make wonderful additions to our day-to-day attire.
