outfit post: Floral Frenzy

The Citizen Rosebud in a Floral Frenzy
It was one of those rare grand days when almost everything goes right. You know the kind? When the traffic lights switch green as you ride up to the intersection, the morning sunlight shines a certain way, + your coffee shows up perfectly brewed. That day, I went into FRINGE, feeling foxy in my lovely vintage cotton dress acquired at Freestyle and my new Betsey Johnson floral thigh high socks (a thoughtful gift from my dear friends Tim & Linda of Martin Mattox!) and what did I find? Not one, but two, floral identical vintage sweaters in excellent condition, that suited my floral frenzy, on my nearly perfect day.

Blooming Madly: triple run in vintage floral and Betsey Johnson
As you may have surmised, I bought one of the sweaters. I just had to. It's warm. It's adorable. It matched my outfit. I had in fact, owned a very similar sweater YEARS ago, and a matching vintage '60's straw handbag. They are long gone and now I have the pleasure of wearing my new woolly floral cardigan that is in such a wonderful condition.


There's another at FRINGE just like it! So if anyone out there wants to match me... catch it while you can! There's a terrific selection of transitional sweaters and jackets, so go already! And get 10% off your purchase when you say "ROSEBUD" at check out.
Subtle Color: purples and greens find their way into all 3 floral prints making a subtle pattern cohesion.
Now Wearing: 
  • Vintage wool floral cardigan, FRINGE
  • Vintage cotton floral print dress, Freestyle
  • Vintage metallic dragon scale belt, thrifted
  • Betsey Johnson Mexicali thigh-highs, gifted
  • Favorite Wedges, Heart Clothing Boutique

Wonderful find! I think it's vintage 60's? A time when flowers were everywhere - and you look fab in them.

the Citizen Rosebud said...

I think you're right, Patty, it's circa 1960's, one of my favorite fashion decade!
