Sartorial Saturday–The Top Five Favorite Fashion Purchases of 2021

Time for one last “Top Five” list for 2021!

2021 was a year where I explored new options for my wardrobe, found some new favorite retailers, and really discovered what I like and I want I don’t in my clothing and accessories. I added some special pieces to my collection, starting with this Erstwilder brooch inspired by Animal Crossing:

Speaking of Animal Crossing, I have never been as excited about a makeup collection as I was about the ColourPopxAnimal Crossing collaboration!

Miss Candyfloss quickly became my favorite vintage-inspired clothing brand in 2021, and I think the Myrtle-Sun dress was my favorite out of the ones I purchased (although, everything I have in my closet from their brand is simply amazing!):

I explored my heritage in a sartorial way this year by adding two dirndls from Rare Dirndl to my wardrobe. They’re both beautiful, but I’m sharing “Die Heimat” because the other was a gift, so not technically something I purchased myself.

And finally, a look at a few pieces from Splendette’s Christmas line…this is my favorite Christmas collection they’ve offered to date!

I’m looking forward to discovering what new things all of my favorite brands offer in 2022!

Sartorial Saturday–Mad for Plaid

If you think this plaid looks familiar, you’re right! I was so impressed with the beautiful colors in this pattern on my Hiva-Blush sunsuit from Miss Candyfloss that I couldn’t resist the Myrtle-Sun dress in the same plaid, which reminds me of a summer sunset! And I don’t love just the cheerful colors…it’s also an amazingly flattering dress!

Speaking of bright colors, I have just the right Splendette bangles to complete the look!

The neckline on this dress is so pretty!

It looks like a halter from the front, but you can see in the back that there’s more substance than just a tie around the neck (which I can’t wear comfortably). There’s also a darling little bow detail, which I love!

This is definitely one of my favorite pieces from Miss Candyfloss…I love everything about it, and I’m super excited to wear it this summer!
