|Short on Cash, but Long on Style. Taking Style Inspiration from Pippi Longstocking.|
Aside from the long stockings, EVERYTHING you see was purchased secondhand. The knit cap (a handmade version of a red head in braids) was a no brainer for me to grab at the Goodwill last week. I'm nearly an official red-head aficionado, and all around lover of all things ginger, so now I can play red-head anytime my head feels cold. The sweater, is a bit brow beaten but precious, being the perfect shade of baby blue for my complexion, and has the cutest pink rosebuds blooming up the arms. I got it at Trove, a new vintage shop in Ballard, and soon to be a dangerous addiction. The polka dot silk dress and rayon shorts were gained by trading some stuff in at a Buffalo Exchange, different visits but both instant favorites. And these tall boots were scored at a great local consignment shop near my home. You might remember their first outing in this outfit post.
I LOVED wearing this outfit, it was a happy day. I felt I got to express myself, which feels like a challenge here in the Emerald city, and feel cute and quirky, comfy and warm. It was an outfit fit to be seen, and I feel gloriously visible in my tribute to Pippi and her longstockings.
