Mix 'n Match: Shades of Autumn
I love "window shopping" online when I have a moment to spare, imagining ways to combine interesting pieces I find. I thought I would try creating a few mix and match ideas using items from my shop and other great handmade and vintage treasures. Check it out! Edition one: Fall colors for the Irma retro ruffle dress. A client I made a custom dress for in this style suggested wearing it with a belt and boots, and so I looked for other awesome accessories that could be used to accent the look or create different takes on it.
These fabulous vintage boots would look amazing with opaque tights.
For a different look, I always say you can't go far wrong with a good pair of wedge sandals to wear with anything.
A wide wrap belt could substitute for the tie-backs if you want a more defined waistline.
The fabulous hat in the photo is my favorite hat of all time and was handmade by the lovely (and friendly) Hat People. I usually wait for them to come to a local festival, but you can buy them online, too!
Or try this amazing cloche for a dressier look.
There are so many great earrings on Etsy, but we can keep it simple with these coral and wood earrings, that match the fabric in the dress so nicely.
Cold outside? This amazing vintage coat would look fabulous over your fancy new ensemble.
