Nicole's was one of the first design blogs I started reading daily when I just got into the design blog world. I adore her for her honesty and her amazing sense of style (that's even if you avoid the fact that she's a talented artist). So, without further ado, Nicole's fabulous outfit with a past:
Hey All... Nicole from Sketch42 here.
So I took the outfit with a past idea pretty literally... This outfit is old. Really old. As in it was my grandmothers, and I wore it as my "going away outfit" at my wedding, although we all know that I would never get on a plane like that and that I wasnt really "going away" at 3 am anyway.
The dress is lace and tule and my grandma had it since the 70's and I loved it. She claims its a designer piece, which it very well could be since she has a lot of those, but this one had no tag so it cant be verified. That hat is actually old too. I borrowed it from my mother in law who had worn it 20 years earlier to my brother in laws bar-mitzvah! I really liked the idea that I was wearing something with history from each side of the family.The shoes, gloves, and fur were new...
I tried to find a better picture of it from the wedding, but at that point, I was so drunk and sloppy that I look like I am falling over my brand new husband! Anyway, I loved this outfit, I just wish I didnt look like such a bozo in all the pictures in it. And I would try it on and take a new picture for you all, but it no longer fits. (The baby in my stomach is making me fat and ugly.) So.... Sorry about that.
So thats all folks, my outfit with a past. Me at my wedding, in some vintage dress and hat. Drunk.
And yes, I cropped my husband out of this photo.
