OOTD – Crowle and Ealand 1940s weekend

So on Saturday I went along to the first ever Crowle and Ealand 1940s weekend and this is the outfit I chose to wear. 

As usual for British weather at this time of the year it was a bit unsettled  and I wasn’t sure what to wear, so I went with a suit with the idea that I could take the jacket on and off as appropriate. 

Suit – The suit is a burgundy 1940s suit by Richard Healy Company of Worcester. 

Jumper – The blue jumper is a fine wool knit and dates to around 1940/50s. 

Shoes – The shoes are 1940s nylon mesh and suede heels.

Bag – The bag is a 1940s faux crocodile clutch with detachable strap (however the strap was long since lost when I bought it so I have done a make-do-and-mend and created a new one out of grossgain ribbon).

Accessories – These are just some simple modern pearl earrings and necklace.

So what do you think to this outfit? I thought the colours were very appropriate for the start of Autumn.

    I love the colour of that suit. It’s a colour I’ve been wanting to bring into my wardrobe but I’ve not seen it much in the stores. Now that I’m going to start making my own clothes though, my options will be much greater! Pretty sweater looks nice with it too.
