Outfit of the Day--Hey Sailor!

I had lunch with my mother, sister, and nephew today, and this is what I wore.

Wrap blouse made by me from a 1945 pattern using 1940s nautical print seersucker
Red gab 1940s-style trousers by Vivien of Holloway

Red patent Betseyville Aisha shoes
Red patent 40s-50s style purse by Hobo International

WWII jointed celluloid sailor brooch

1940s carved red Bakelite button earrings

Cream gardenia and red berry hair flower by My Sweet Corazon


  1. You are the bees knees in that getup! Love the colors.

    Thanks doll,

  2. Hi

    I've just found your blog - we used to chat a bit on MUA about being pale and Besame/Julie Hewett cosmetics.

    You look fabulous here - I love the colours, the shapes, everything is just perfect. I'm so glad to have found your blog.

  3. Fantastic outfit. Such striking colours!

  4. Lovely as usual darling!


  5. I'm a big fan of nautical outfits and you have done a lovely job at putting yours together!

  6. You can't beat red shoes! Gorgeous!

  7. Thank you everyone for the kind words! I appreciate everyone taking the time to drop me a line :-)

    And I'm so glad you found me Grace! I do remember you from MUA and I'll be sure to check out your blog too!

  8. Love it!
    Blue and red are really classy together.

  9. Thanks again for all the kind words!

    Red and blue is definitely a favorite combination of mine and I wear the two colors together often :-)

  10. So absolutely fantastic! I adore red pants and am always looking for ways to make them seem less 60s/70s and more vintage. This pair excels at that, they look so wonderfully 40s!

    Wishing you a beautiful Monday & week ahead, sweetie!
