FIRST..the belt I am wearing is intended for around your thigh for something in horseback riding, not quite sure what.
SECOND...MY LUCKY DAY...I had been looking for a men's wool swimsuit for a while to wear as a romper, but I wasn't having much luck. Wool swimsuits were going on Ebay for around $270 which I was not about to spend. One day, I walked into a tiny little estate sale, found a couple of old copies of some of my favorite books (I found a version of Alice in Wonderland that I think was pretty close to original!), and just as I was about to leave, I saw the men's wool swimsuit I am wearing here. Guess what...it was 5 dollars. And the guy threw in a couple of vintage button for free!
I guess it was just my lucky day...
CAN'T FORGET...thanks to Noah Berch for the wonderful photos.
