Vintage Photo Friday: Let's Go Autumnal!

I'm not sure what look she's going for...

It's that wonderful time of year again. It's time to watch the leaves tumble across the neighborhood in an array of changing colors. It's time to feel the strength of the sun diminish against the chill in the air. And it's time to pile on those layers!

Bust out your cardigans. Dig out those bejeweled sweatshirts and Cosby sweaters. The official start of Fall is soon upon us. And if you're a layer-lover like I am, you'll relish this time of year, when you can wear every single shirt you've ever thrifted...all at the same time. 

This woman has gone mad over the possibilities for the Fall fashion season. Mismatching boots, a classic ketchup and mustard combo...topped with a...space helmet. This vintage model from yesteryear has gone intergalactic with her layering. 

. . . . .

This is my favorite time of the year for so  many reasons. The weather, naturally has the top billing. But lest we not forget my favorite nonsecular holiday, Halloween. So many exciting things are on the horizon here at Let's Go Thrifting! I can't wait for share them all with you. 

And speaking of sharing, I'd like to take the opportunity to issue a thrifty thanks to the lovely Amber of The Owl's Den. Amber has so graciously offered her blog for free Let's Go Thrifting sponsorship and has even been so kind as to give me a little spotlight bio as well. Amber is quick to share her blog space with other creatives, bloggers and independent business owners. So, everybody go on over to The Owl's Den and show some love. 

'Til next time, thrifters. Go grab your favorite thrifted sweater and get yourself a pumpkin spice latte.

Oh wow. I love her style.

Is this an actual photo you have Jackie or is it a scan from a magazine?

It's actually a clipping from a beat-up looking vintage fashion textbook. I was originally going to sell the book on Etsy, but it was in bad shape overall. Didn't stop me from tearing into the pages for some of the awesome vintage style photos!

I think her boots match. It’s just the medal stairs she’s on casting shadow that makes them look different

You might be right, Frugal. It wasn't the shadow that threw me off. To me they look like a different pattern than the cut-outs on the foot at the top of the ladder. I tried to enhance it a bit...but figured, hey it doesn't matter much. This outfit is hilarious enough as it is!
