A Flapper's~ Early Fall Outfit

          I love fall time, and I just can't wait for the trees to change colour and the cooler air to sweep in. I've already been investing in some vintage wool coats and furs for the winter season, since now is the time to buy, with certain pieces being very well discounted.
       Here I've invested some good hard earned money into a perfect classic black wool coat with double buttons. I happened to have found it on etsy for half off it's asking price~
 Hey you know us Modern Day Flappers are always on a budget.
        But I also have been in love with Mink Stoles, and how big of a statement they make on the shoulders of a Flapper. So I had been looking around on e-bay, and came arcoss this fantastic 1930's 4 pelt mink stole for a well in range asking price. I just could pass these little guys up.
        My pencial skirt was a thrift find. It was a bit too big for wearing high wasited so I took in the sides of the skirt to ajust to my shape. I love the one pleated detail over one knee, very early 1930's. The colour is perfect for the Flapper inspired image.
        My yellowish ruffle sweater top was also a thrift find, and wearing it with this interesting purple skirt makes this look just pop with the details of the roaring 20's.

Hair~ air dried, and put up with Hot Sticks- let locks loose after 20-30 minutes, brush clean, pin longer locks to the nape of the neck
