Country Shirt

Yesterday, in the midst of taking photos for my graduation work, a package arrived containing a shirt I bought from etsy a little while back.

I was super excited to get it and was anxious to wear it - not least because it matches my skirt almost exactly - luckily it was somewhat sunny today so...

It may have been sunny, but I wasn't brave enough to take my cardigan off outside, this morning. Brrr!

Sunglasses - Stall at Rock 'n' Roll Rendezvous; Cardigan - Deborah K; Sheriff Badge unknown toy shop {I thought it'd be a bit of fun to wear this, today, because I felt a bit cowgirl-esque}; Shirt - 1950s, from etsy; Belt - Gift; Skirt - refashioned from vintage (1970s) dress; Stockings - Love Kylie; Shoes - Big W

But I took some photos inside where it was warmer...

I think it's something Wanda Jackson would wear, or maybe even Patsy Cline! I certainly felt like I could be a country singer - although maybe not quite as outlandishly dressed - I need something with some fringing on it for the quintessential Country look. I think I may have to take a look around for some more country/rockabilly inspired vintage threads, now.

Love,

  5. I adore this! I have a couple country skirts, but I need some more rhinestones to make it fully Wanda Jackson!
