Today my girlfriend and I went thrifting in the beautiful neighbourhood of Eira, mainly to look for items for our new home. It was a lovely day; the sun was out and it was relatively warm outside. I was pleased to get another jacket free outing, which we are quickly running out of here in Helsinki.
My extempore outfit is a bit of a mixture of everything, both the old and the new. The dress is from the 1940s, the crochet purse is 1930s and the rest are mainly high street finds. Oh, Brittany of Va-Voom Vintage posted about these shoes a while back and I ended up ordering a pair from Ebay. I love the t-strap, the rounded toe and the low heel, which makes them comfortable. Plus, they're very affordable. I'll definitely order another pair in a different colour, they're just so cute and wearable.
I don't know why but I felt a bit Bonnie Parker-ish in this outfit. Although I can't really picture Bonnie Parker rocking a sweater with bows.
