Forties Fever

I almost always dress vintage on my days off.  But the day I wore this outfit, for some reason, I felt like going completely all out.  I put the hat on; I did a back roll and pin curls in my hair; I wore gloves; I had on thigh high back seam stockings and a garter belt; I wore a vintage slip underneath the dress...  Like I said, all out.  I don't know what it was about that day, but the urge just came over me.





Outfit Details:
vintage dress, belt, handbag {thrifted}
vintage hat, vintage gloves {antique fair}
oxford pumps {target}
vintage jewelry {my grandmother's}
back seam thigh high stockings {ebay}

I think now that we are transitioning into cooler days here in Pennsylvania, that I might go all out a bit more just with the layering.  I'm going to be wearing stockings and hats more.  Then once it becomes even cooler, I'll break out the gloves.  I only have a few pairs of vintage gloves that are thick enough for the colder weather; the rest are just the thinner ones that won't help keep out the bite of coldness.  I must acquire a few more pairs for the Winter months ahead.

I did finally purchase three pairs of thicker stockings as well: heather grey, navy, and black.  The navy and black are even the cable knit sweater kind- exactly what I wanted!  Now I just want to find an oatmeal colour and I think I'll be set for the sweater kind.  But I do also want to get opaque tights in various bright colours; the only pair I have now is a sort of rust colour which is perfect for Autumn.

What are staple pieces that you must have for your Fall and Winter wardrobes?
