GET INTO THE GROOVE...new feature/ part 2

We all have clothing  in the depths of our closets or packed away waiting for the perfect opportunity to dig them out and finally wear them.  Right?   Guilty no more!  I am beginning  this new feature as a tribute to the vintage 60's and 70's clothing that I have scored by scouring my local thrift stores over the years.  My previous post here was the first feature or part one. 

This groovy, animal print pantsuit was roaring to be worn so I decided to do an inside shoot while testing my new camera.  I brought this vintage copy of Modigliani on canvas in from garage to add to the shoot.  It was given to me as a gift from my Aunt Margie, a follower of this blog.  I have learned to appreciate this type of art and I am going to hang it my bedroom after it gets painted next week.  Thank you Aunt Margie. 

I added  a black tank because the wrap shirt was too open at the top. My necklace is an original beaded 70's piece found at Goodwill for less than a dollar.

What's been hanging in your closet that needs a dusting off?  What have you found a new appreciation for lately?  Have a great day and get into the groove!  Dawn xo

I love your outfit. That pantsuit seriously couldn't be anymore perfect. And it looks darling on you. I also have to say that I love that chair.

Love your decor, your pantsuit, the era...and how your photo mimics the face in the painting. You could be someone's muse.
