Sartorial Saturday–Parisian Dreams

Today I’m taking a look at accessories inspired by my dreams of visiting Paris!

Would you believe I’ve had this beret in my wardrobe for years, but only recently started wearing it (one of my daughters wore it way before I ever did!). I love the idea of a beret, but I could never figure out how to wear one correctly. I don’t know exactly what changed, but I’ve discovered that I can actually put this one on in a way that looks right now! I borrowed Chickadee’s Eiffel Tower brooch from Erstwilder to complete my Parisian look (I liked it so much, I may order one of my own!)…maybe someday, I’ll actually see the City of Light for myself!

Sartorial Saturday…On a Sunday–Festive Fashion in the Deep Freeze

Merry Christmas!

Time for a look at this year’s festive fashion, heavily influenced by the Arctic weather we’ve been having. The chill made warm clothing a must on Christmas Eve, so I added a cape and beret (and red tights), to my usual Christmas dress. I also added a Christmas Splendette stack, my favorite sparkly Christmas brooch, and equally sparkly silver shoes.

Even at home, I had to dress with the cold in mind, so I threw a cardigan on over my Miss Candyfloss dressing gown:

The faux fur collar on my cape is removable, so I changed up its look on Christmas Day. This time I wore a Rare Dirndl and my new Christmas apron, plus a flower crown that arrived just in time for Christmas. I accessorized with edelweiss, a brand-new Homes bracelet, and some Erstwilder brooches:

I kind of enjoyed having truly cold weather for Christmas, especially since it allowed me to dress a little differently this year!
