Vintage Suede, Ruffles, and Striped Pants



Vintage is stiff and hard to wear.  But sometimes it's worth it right?  I felt like a sailor in these pants because, although my camera-phone photos don't reveal it, these pants are blue and white striped and are super nautical up close.  But then I realized that sailors don't wear ruffly crop tops and suede jackets....This jacket is actually real suede that I inherited from my grandmother.  Although I can't lift my arms in it, I like the shape it gives to the shoulders, and how it fits with the ruffles.  Sometimes masculine-inspired pieces are the most luxuriously feminine.  
This is definitely a contrast to the shorts and T-shirt I have been living in for the past week.  These are all of my grandma's old clothes, but the shoes are Steve Madden moccasins that I got at Nordstrom Rack. Thrifty thrifty thrifty........
