This Week’s Look is back from summer vacation and the fall/winter shopping is already in progress. In preparation for the imminent seasonal shift, earlier this summer we scored a couple pairs of vintage, leather driving gloves and a 1970s caramel leather blazer at cheap heatwave prices. This jacket will probably top a black and white striped, long-sleeved, crew neck t-shirt and skinny jeans. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. There’s a heat wave presently plaguing us here in southern California, so we’re going to have to put those treasures on hold until further notice.

The rest of you, however, are already picking up on the first signs of autumn. Instagram is full of snapshots featuring falling orange leaves and light jackets. For you, this week we have curated a collection of vintage leather blazers, as seen on etsy and eBay. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

Vintage Tall Boots in Larger Sizes

with one comment

For my sister, who has humongoloid feet (just kidding, just kidding), today we are featuring vintage (and new but vintage-y) knee-high boots in larger sizes for women. I wear size 8.5 to 9, so I tend to look for vintage shoes that measure about 10.25 to 10.50 inches from heel to toe and about 3.25 inches across. The boots listed here today are size 9.5 and larger. As vintage sizing can vary dramatically from modern sizing, don’t go by the size marked, look at the actual measurements. Click on each image below to see the full listing.

My sister’s feet, pictured above left. Look at them. Just look at them. Also, that’s my niece Devyn in the middle and me on the right.
