Over time I have accumulated so many felt accessories and clothing items.
In the following week I would like to style outfits inspired and revolving around the felt pieces.
It seems the most popular periods for felt cut outs would be the 1920s 1930s 1940s and 1950s

I received this sweater from Larkspur vintage a few days ago, and have been wearing it too much ever since (there may be many more blog posts of me wearing it hehehe) I decided to wear this 'fishermans sweater' with a lobster brooch and a fish purse, which I thought was a cheeky combination!  Today I made buttermilk walnut scones which made me feel very domestic, seasonal, and cozy.

Outfit details:

Fisherman sweater: 1960s 1970s Fisherman cable knit cream wool from Larkspur vintage
Brooch: Ceramic lobster with gold painted details
Corduroy leggings: M&S

On the last day with my parents we went to the giant whole foods in Kensington, and then briefly visited the V&A.  Each time I see the Costume section in the V&A I am reminded how they took the HUGE selection of antique textiles you could view behind these glass drawers.  You could even take them out and study them closer.  I think they might be in the design museum now, which has an entry fee!    I wish that the display of "fashion" was better and complementary to the business that makes up most of the uk's economy.

Outfit details:

Dress: 1960s brocade with darc brown fur trim
Collar: fur mink 1950s
Brooch: 1920s celluloid hand brooch with a movable ring and bracelet and red nail polish
Headband: Fur 1960s
