pea coat- J.Crew | turtleneck- thrifted | skirt-1960s vintage | shoes- Gucci (thank you Ebay!) | bag- Francesco Biasia
 I had been looking for a pair of beige shoes  to wear with cream tights for what feels like forever.  I thought I had found my dream pair when I bought these, but they ended up being a tad too small and now they're meant for some other lucky size nine girl.  At any rate, I ended up with these beige-y cream ones you see her which I love just as much, even though they're a bit more on the cream side.  They've got a 1960s vibe and I love the chunky stacked heel.  Plus they're super-comfy.  Three good reasons they might just make it into the rotation as much as my trusty Ferragamos.

The Basics

coat- J.Crew   dress- 1960s vintage  shoes- Ferragamo   bag- birthday gift

Can't get any more basic than wool dress, tights and Ferragamos.  My fall/winter uniform if you will. This coat I just got on sale at J.Crew recently.  I needed something new warm for my holiday trip to Ireland coming up in a few weeks.  Not sure if it'll cut it for warmth, but I'm gonna try and make it work.  Nothing a heavy aran sweater underneath won't fix, right?

Polka Dots and Purple Pleats

sweater- vintage 1960s
polka dot shirt- vintage 1980s
skirt- vintage 1980s
loafers- J. Crew via Ebay
bag- gifted Dooney & Bourke

I feel like I should probably start a series called "things I've stolen from Custard Heart Vintage for my own closet" because even though the list wouldn't be that long, the things I have taken from the shop, I love dearly.  I know a lot of vintage dealers freely borrow from their own inventory, which is great, but for the most part, once I decide to pull something from the shop, it usually doesn't make it's way back because I just get too attached!  This purple skirt is a prime example.
