PIED DE POULE & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

PIED DE POULE & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Pied de Poule pre loved suit

My love for Pied de Poule goes way back. I can remember that as a little girl I loved to stroll in my grandmother’s closet and dress up. And especially to wear her patent pumps with a bow. I can also remember that I proudly dressed up with those shoes walking down their open spiral stairs ……yes, and fell down….. But my grandmother had a Pied de Poule pencil skirt. I loved that one. Since that time I have a crush on Pied de Poule. She also had a short (fake) black fur coat. That along with those pumps from her would still be a great outfit!

Pied de Poule as a neutral?

But this is a Pied de Poule suit I also love. And even better, it is pre loved. And you can style it in many different ways. I now wear it with a bow blouse. That is not pre loved but ten years old! That is a very long time for me. But this two piece also looks very nice with my black patent sneakers! And then with a knitted sweater. For a casual look. I like it better to wear no color with this outfit and have kept my accessories gold( colored). The boots are also about eight years old and are due for replacement. Very unfortunate because these are Italian and they fit perfectly around my calves. I have already seen a few beautiful ones! I’m still betting on the sale! With my luck they are immediately sold out!pied de poulepied de poulepied de poulepied de poulepied de poulepied de poulepied de poule

    Looking gorgeous as always! I adore this look and the fact that it’s “pre-loved” and you thought to style it with the bow! I am so not great at finding new and creative ways to wear things. Ah well, always learning!

    I love the story and the outfit Nancy. I also love that you show “old” material in a month filled with buying and more buying. Very good for your creativity (as shown in the beautiful photos) as well as your wallet and above all: for our planet. Wishing you a stylish and fun weekend, two elements that radiate from this blogpost! Love, Lieske

    What a great find! It looks 1960s. I hope it is. I also love how you’ve styled it and that you have so many great memories associated with that brand. That is the great thing about wearing vintage, you’re wearing history.

    Your outfit is such a fun mix of contrasts. While the pied de poule could look serious, the bow top, boots and even the long sleeves under the shorter sleeves makes it look playful. That, and your spunk! Hugs, Kim

    That suit is absolutely adorable my friend! Too bad you didn’t hold on to some of your grandma’s clothes it sounds like they would be perfect on you now. I remember playing dress up in this beautiful blue tulle confection of a dress that belonged to my grandma…I so wish that I still had it!

    I love that “bird’s feet” (in English translation) and “houndstooth” are the same pattern – so cool.

    This is an awesome suit on you, Nancy – a really fun cut. I have had many houndstooth pieces over the years – it’s a pattern that never goes out of style.
