Posh Frock Friday!

Today I’m playing along with Kate’s new event: Posh Frock Fridays. Here’s the idea: we all get dolled up in our prettiest duds (just because we can) and while we’re at it, we snap a photo to show. Behold, my entry!

Dress: sewn by me!

Cropped jacket: inherited from my grandmother

Faux-fur scarf: vintage from gwenevere24

Faux-fur hat: vintage from Sadie ‘n Stella

Shoes: Emily’s Closet

Bracelet and earrings: Burlington Coat Factory

Nailpolish: China Rouge from China Glaze

Advantageous mask: vintage travel stationery from a local antique shop

Fun fact about this outfit: This is what I wore when I presented my senior project to the faculty several weeks ago. It made the whole experience feel like a Noir adventure!

  11. Thank you so much, Kate! Compliments from our PFF organizer are most treasured! I’m glad you noticed the flappers. I usually have that lovely card by my work desk, but moved it for these shots as a little tribute to you.

    Heehee, thanks Millie-me-dear!

    Aww, thanks, Raquelle! I guess it must be odd to finally sort of “see me.” I hope I look as you thought I would. :)

  12. I love the outfit. So pretty!

  13. Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a stylish blogger award!

    Love and Glamour,


  14. Every detail is perfect — you look fabulous! I launched a new blog on film noir, http://www.filmnoirblonde.com. Hope you’ll check it out. FNB

  15. I adore the touches of leopard with the all-black outfit. I have a couple of leopard hats but none of with netting. Very classy outfit!
