This week I have a very fun series of posts for you! I am collaborating with The Haven Collective, a local shop in New Haven, CT. Specializing in vintage fashion, The Haven Collective is also home to a pop up shop space for local artists, and offers crafting classes on Sundays.
Throughout the week I will be sharing some of my favorite pieces from the store, in some of my favorite places in New Haven.
Today I'm wearing a vintage white pleated skirt and carrying the most amazing snakeskin bag, borrowed from The Haven Collective. While I love the skirt for how easily it could pass for a contemporary piece, I'm obsessed with how unique the bag is. The hexagonal shape, the huge gold clasp, the fact that is is real snakeskin; all elements which make this not only a standout piece, but you would be hard-pressed to find it's equal in a store today.
I mentioned last week that I wanted a bit more whimsy in my outfits, so I paired the skirt and bag with stripes, my cherry pumps, an oversized hat, and headed back to Wooster Square, where the cherry blossoms had just passed their peak and the gentlest of breezes would cause the petals to flutter to the ground like a snow flurry.
