It is the unfortunate truth is that fall has come to Finland. The temperatures have dropped and it is rainy and grey... Ugh! A lot of people seem to be excited about dressing for fall but I have never mastered dressing for colder weather. Quite frankly, I'm dread the fall and, especially, the winter season. I feel that it is more difficult to find vintage (and vintage inspired!) accessories, cardigans, coats, shoes (etc!) for colder weather compared to summertime - especially in larger sizes.
I have been trying to prepare for fall time early this year, buying different pieces here and there. Today I ordered the 1940s beret and scarf set in royal blue from Marion May. Around same time last year I ordered the 1920s hat and scarf set in purple, which I loved and wore throughout the season.
I'd warmly recommend Marion May for those of you who live in colder climates, love vintage crochet - but are rather challenged in knitting by yourself, like me. ;)
PS. Just how cute is the 1940s beret and cape set? So very vintage superheroine! I hope to order mine soon.
