Long Skirt/Short Jacket

(Sorry, Cake. I don’t do short skirts.)

Usually, when I wear vintage pieces, I try to balance it with more modern pieces to avoid looking like a cosplayer. However, during this past year, as my vintage collection grows, I sometimes find myself going all-out, just for fun. Like this outfit, for example. The skirt is a bit longer than I expected, but I decided to keep it as it is so I can live out my Edwardian fantasy in my head. I did get some funny looks as I biked to work in this, but I didn’t mind. I was busy imagining myself as Anne of Green Gables (I probably look more like Marilla, but that’s OK, she’s a badass lady too.)

  1. You are young enough that I think you can go all out and not look like you’re cosplaying-that jacket is a gem!

      Thanks, Terri! I don’t think being young has anything to do with it – there are some fabulous cosplayers/history-bounding bloggers that are way younger than me (like Bernadette Banner and Rache Maksy), and they still look like they step out of a Victorian/Edwardian photo. It’s just not me, though. That’s why I try to mix and match the pieces and silhouettes from different decades so it just looks vintage-inspired instead.
