outfit: working class comfort

trade-mark clothing label four pocket top

This vintage Trade-Mark Label top was a great find at a local New Orleans consignment store.  I’ve been paying more attention to the quality of fabrics lately, and the fabric here is what got my attention first.   It is made of a hefty 100% cotton fabric.  The thickness not only means it will last a long time but also elevates the aesthetic by giving it a stiff-crisp-clean feel. This is a nice addition to a corner of my wardrobe that’s rockin’ a Mao-era socialist vibe.

outfit: the breton crop

This cotton wool blend breton top from Cos shrunk a bit when it accidentally ended up in the dryer.  Now it makes the perfect crop to wear with high waisted anything.  What a surprise.  I haven’t seen any breton crops, especially ones with tomboy drop shoulders out there. I’m loving this simple twist to a modern classic.
