Prayers For Rain

Is summer over yet? 
I know I'm supposed to be "excited" about it being nice out, I'm supposed to "enjoy it while I can", but no no. I love cold weather. I love rain. Bring on those grey skies! Bring on the wool & fur! Bring on the layers!


Perhaps it's because there's less competition, but I swear I always find my favorite winter clothes in the heart of summer. This wool boucle 30s number came into my life last week and could not wait to wear it. The zipper up the front kills me. Plus, it pairs perfectly with my grandma's bakelite horse set. Luckily, the clouds came home on Sunday & I jumped on the opportunity to rock it. 


Vintage glee.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who yearns for grey skies, right?
Hope you folks are doing fabulous. Stay tuned for some vintage magazine drool-worthies coming up this weekend.

  1. WHAT ARE THOSE SHOES!?!?! Seriously! Those are killer!!!

    And, yes, that suit is quite fantastic! I can't blame you for wishing for the cooler weather to come. I scored a fantastic leather jacket at Expo and have been pining to wear it... Alas, I think 60 degrees is still too warm for it.

    1. ...Ohhh my god, these shoes. Found on Etsy, in the depths of the worst shop. Tagged "vintage" and "shoes"... that's all. TEN DOLLARS.

      AHHHHHH!

    2. Ten bucks? I hate you. Just kidding.

      Maybe.

      This entire outfit is so gorgeous, I want to steal the entire thing. Especially that bag makes me droooool.

  2. That is seriously a gorgeous piece! You look incredible in it. Oh my goodness, I cannot wait for cold weather! My husband and I both are cold weather/cloudy sky people...maybe we should move somewhere else besides Tennessee haha.

  4. Oh me! Oh my! Can I say how fabulous you look in this suit? I love the a-line skirt feature. What a great suit! Granny is the best for letting you have that brooch set!! I'm with you about wanting a bit of cool weather just so I can wear a suit:) You look just like a glamour girl. You rock:))

  5. Gorgeous, so gorgeous!! That zipper up the front is divinely chic, and your matching green brooches and purse are killing me!

    I feel like the only vintage girl in the world who hates Fall and Winter-- while I prefer grey skies & rain, I like 'em paired with heat and humidity!! A rainforest clime, if you will ;) Cold weather has me full of dread, though the rich textiles like wool, fur and velvet are totally what get me through until Springtime!

  6. Oh goodness! You look fabulous! I love the color! You really look great in it. I'm totally with you about the weather! I can't wait for it to cool off so that I can wear some new cool weather stuff that I recently bought!

  7. I totally agree with cooler weather, I love the "gloom and doom" of the pacific northwest. Hence I love living in Seattle and get really annoyed when people complain about the rain here (but then complain about when it gets hot in the summertime). I really can't tolerate anything above 80, and always look forward to summer ending. But...I do like growing veggies and flowers in my garden, so there's that at least!
    That suit is amazing by the way, such a pretty shade of green.

  8. I'm with you sister! I am not a lover of the whole drenched in perspiration, melting make up feeling that goes with summer. Here in my part of Australia we are having a wonderful winter that is mild enough to be able to do lots of things outside but cold enough to wear the wool and furs. I adore your suit and think you look fab!

  9. Your outfits always inspire me! Even though I'm a 50s girl at heart, you make me want to go out and buy rayon dresses or now a boucle suit... :)

    You might be the only one who wishes for rain! I love summer but I do try to buy my winter coats in summer (picked up my two fur coats at good prices in previous summers!) I always try to look for the seasons ahead but it's so hard when all I really want right now is a 1940s two piece bathing suit! *sigh, the problems of a vintage lover*

  10. That suit is fabulous! I must admit I'm in no hurry for winter to come back, but there is definitely something to be said for such stylish winter clothing.

  12. Sweet gal, we are two west coast souls cut from the same (vintage) cloth, I tell yah. I am craving autumn's return something fierce, and typically adore cold, snowy and rainy weather more than the sweltering summer heat, too. My mind tends to function better in cooler weather, and I'm ready for the leaves to start changing hues once more so that I can have some deeper thoughts while sporting vintage woolens, tweeds, velvets and the like once more.

    Incredible ensemble! That suit is so chic, becoming and beautiful, sweet Sara. You look tres magnifique!

  13. Yes I can see why you couldn't wait to wear that suit! I would be wishing for cooler weather too. Gorgeous all around, and it looks great with the horses, shoes etc. And those shoes, for $10, are you kidding me?!?! Seriously jealous, you are one lucky girl. Congratulations on some great finds!! Thanks for sharing them with us. :)

  14. This suit is absolutely gorgeous! I love the print and the little puffed shoulders! And the bag! And the horses! Gah! I am totally obsessed with green, so this whole ensemble sets my heart racing! I have a couple of new suits that I haven't worn yet, but I love love LOVE the hot weather (which we have been having a lot of in London) so I would happily wait months and months to wear the suits just to be able to enjoy the summer weather for longer! :)
