Baronial Posturings and a Bird Hat

I'm not a REAL Baroness, but sometimes it's fun to play one on my blog!  To quote Dorothy Parker, "I've never been rich, but think I'd be darling at it!" Haha! Seriously, I am content being my non-baronial self, but I do love smart 1930s manor house fashions a la Gosford Park (and its predecessor, La Regle du Jeu).  




Outfit:
1930s Jacket:  Garb-Oh Vintage
1930s style skirt: custom made by Wearing History
1930 style blouse: custom made by Nudeedudee
1930s/40s brown shoes: etsy
1930s feathered hat: my shop

Oh wow, this outfit is just perfect! I love the jewel tones of that divine jacket. Oh, and I think I'd be quite darling at being rich, too. ;) x
