Something Old; Something New: Ruffles and Lace

I bought this blouse around the turn of the century–WOW, that sounds old! The skirt is new this summer.

burgundy blouse 1This burgundy crêpe blouse with ruffles around the neck and down the front doesn’t have any buttons, so I wear it over a burgundy camisole (which also has tiny ruffles around the neckline). I love this crinkly, semi-sheer fabric.

My velvet choker with a silver heart and a tiny burgundy rose is from Germany. Version 2

When I bought the skirt, it was one of those times that I couldn’t decide on a colour so I bought one in ecru and one in blue. They also came in black and white, but I refrained from buying four skirts.

Burgundy is one of my favourite colours in autumn.

What is your favourite autumnal colour?

    Skirt and blouse are wonderful! I love all this combination of ruffles, lace, delicate fabrics and romantic and subtle designs. The color combination is perfect, delicate and elegant, this tone of beige and garnet combines with wonder. And I love garnet in your accessories and shoes, it is very elegant. Beautiful, rather wonderful, your hair in the wind, so soft, and delicate. You’re really attractive …

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! I’m glad you like this outfit, next time I’ll be showing this skirt in blue too. I have these shoes in blue which I bought in Germany in 1982. 🙂

  4. Lovely outfit Carmen! Super. That’s also the autumn colour I prefer although there’s really no Autumn in my side of the globe. That shoulder bag of yours is so versatile. 🙂

      No autumn? I would miss autumn, but I sure wouldn’t miss winter. The little shoulder bag is just big enough for a cell phone and lipstick—the essentials. 😉 It can hold keys and a credit card too 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. You look very pretty in the burgundy blouse and ecru skirt Carmen. I just love the detail and ruffles , so stylish. also the purse is lovely and the burgundy shoes. best of all it is just so feminine which is what I like too! I really like orange and mustard with some clay too. Hugs, Terri xo.

    Burgundy is a lovely colour and looks great, with your white beautiful skirt. It fit so perfect together also with the ruffles and layers of the skirt.
