To be honest with you, I don't currently own one suit/set, vintage or not. I don't have a matching nothing - shirt+skirt, dress+bolero, jacket+pant or any other combo. I don't really know why, because I absolutly adore vintage suits/sets. I can't resist them. They seem so much more special to me than any other clothing item and I can't really explain it. It might have something to do with the fact I love to mix and match, or that I adore layering above all. There's an unexplained magic about things that match.
Short story: My mother often tells the tale (one of many that emberess me) of how when I was little, I matched every single item I wore. My mother would say something like: "She would drive me crazy! If she had a red shirt, the pants had to be red, and so did the socks and the shoes!". So I went to some of my old photo albums to find you proof and couldn't really find any for putting seperates together but HELLO - almost every picture I have as a child between, lets say, 2-6 years old, is of me wearing some kind of suit/set! That's kindda crazy.
And to top it all - Exhibit C:
I know, I'm adorable, can you handle it? By the way, that's my awesome sister Shira in the pictures with me. In the 3rd pictures, she is ALSO wearing a set. Not as hardcore as I was obviously.
ANYWAY, after prooving my deep connecting to suits/sets, let me exhibit the current suits/sets in my fantasy life. Viva La Suits/Sets! :
