Christmas came early

This week I took some trade to Bombshell Vintage on Burnside, none of the fantastic pieces she has came home with me, but I did find a simple little sweater clip. I've been looking for one, so that's something to check off the list! It even has a blank space for engraving, one of these days I'll get my initials on it.

It was a sunny and crisp day, so my mom snapped a few pics before we left, I also wanted to show you guys my new purse! 

It was an early Christmas present from Sam, something I had pointed out months ago, and he remembered! What a guy.

Very cute pairing with the saturated colors. The little planes on your blouse are such a cute detail as well. I have been looking for a skirt like that to dance in! They look so nice and you can actually move in them. The search continues...
Looks like you got yourself a good one if he remembered what you wanted from that long ago!

You really always have the best vintage pieces! I love everything you're wearing here! That green hat is such a gorgeous color and your shoes are adorable. Not to mention how fantastic that timeless Coach bag is. The mix of color in this outfit looks wonderful too. And so does your hair!

Wow, you are so lucky to get a present like that! Coach ought to give you a free bag in exchange for promoting their brand.

What a great outfit! I must say I like red, white and blue... and I like the way you've peppered it with a bit of tan and green. That blouse always looks good on you and goes with so many looks....think I might be needing one sometime soon. xx Shauna

I love that outfit. The colours! The hat! Gorgeous.

Jessica Cangiano said...

You look magnificent. I always adore the wonderful, timeless colour pairings you create with your outfits, and today's look is no exception.

How very, very sweet of Sam to get your that elegant, gorgeous Coach bag. When it comes to modern handbags, their's are one of the very few brands that I've ever swooned long and hard over, too.

Romance Dame said...

Love this outfit so much! That bag is amazing.

MissNathalieVintage said...

Red definitely is a neutral. One of my favorites,too.

Martha said...

But, the burning question is left unanswered. WHAT IS THE BAG'S NAME???!! Heaven's to Betsy, a Coach bag must have a name!

I hope that (can't believe I forgot your MK bag's name... Chester? Roland? Vincent? Bueller? j/k! Anyhoo...) is getting along well with the new. ;)

Sara said...
