OUTFITS | Burgundy Suit

Photobucket

Photobucket

suit: thrifted
shirt: Jutka&Riska
necklace: Nelly
shoes: thrifted

+DIY branch hanger


I imagine this suit belonging either to a little elevator boy or a petite, korean,chique grandma. I found it in the secondhand store of a posh village a few years ago. Flawless thick wool fabric, a double row of golden buttons(which I tore off) and the best part; it was just my size. Being barely 1.60m I rarely find anything that doesn't need to be shortened, cut or taken in. Specially suits in thrift stores are usually viking sized as oposed to this little thing.
Oh and have you already bought any heart shaped candy with 70% discount for your lover today?

totally understand not being able to find nice petite suits at thrift stores! i found that i had to wait until i inherited a couple of pieces before i got some nice fitting vintage jackets (i have an amazing 1940's number from my grandma that I'm working on sewing some new lining for).

good work!

Lara Maria said...

wonderful look. looove it. greetz from nyc fashion week

Alice /// VESTIGIAL WINGS said...

what a great find, and in your size! I wonder if the pants were already cropped like that?

A said...

that's an awesome find!

i love the burgundy color and and how the suit looks like it was just made for you!

the necklace adds a nice touch :)
speaking of the necklace, that's the one that came from nelly right? how is it holding up? is the quality of it bad? i remember you doing a post a long time ago talking about how it had arrived just in a bag and was already beat up a bit....

^maybe i'm imagining things....

the touch of burgundy of your suit is immensely catchy =0 your choice of pairing it up with a silk blouse from Jutka & Riska is very interesting. it's certainly lovely Ivania ~ and your hair colour rocks !! candy lilac <3

that vintage suit suits your quirky minimalism style so well! One suit to get away after the massively commercialized Valentine's day :p

Maow said...

I stumbled on your blog when I was randomly on bloglovin. Your blog is so amazing, and makes me so inspired. I love your sense of fashion and DIY projects.

Linn said...

Wow, how chic! Very nicely styled, as always! Being a curvy viking myself, i can hardly find anything in second hand shops that fit me, since ppl in the decades i love(40s,50s,60s) obviously were a lot smaller than i am.. :s

quadri said...

I really like your shoes e hair color!

Maria said...

great find! I also have a nifty burgundy wool blazer.
