Golden Threads and Giveaways

Just a little post to share pictures of my beautiful new cardigan. It arrived yesterday, in the loveliest package I have ever received, with a sweet little note from the equally sweet and lovely Marcine.

It's the only vintage cardigan I own - the cut is so much nicer than any other cardigan I have, too!


I don't think this is the ideal skirt to wear with the cardigan but I was keen on wearing it as soon as possible, after it arrived yesterday.

Faux Pearls: Hero Vintage
Cardigan: 40s/50s vintage, etsy
Skirt: op-shopped
Stockings: op-shopped
Shoes: Big W


I've also started uploading some old pictures of myself because, well, why not?

One last thing, The Glamorous Housewife is hosting a giveaway in celebration of her 100th post (and 50th follower) and she's giving away these darling turquoise earrings.

Head on over to her wonderful blog to enter yourself!

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  2. Thats a great cardie! :-D I'm on the hunt for one myself and they are surprisingly thin on the ground right now. Where can you get good ones? I tried Portmans with no luck.

  4. What a lovely cardigan! I have TONS of vintage ones, I like them so much better than new ones. They are always made better and it's very hard to find new cardis that are beaded or embroidered.

    Happy Tuesday!

  10. I adore that cardigan! Whenever I find great vintage cardigans, which is already rare enough, they are always way too big; that cardigan is very well fitted. Beautiful! I love the embellishment :)
