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.
