Retro-Style Fitted Bloomers

Fitted bloomers.

Keeping with the recent theme of spring accessories and fine underthings, today’s post is all about fitted retro-style bloomers. There are so many fun choices out there!

Bloomers by Free People.

Bloomers were popularized during the Victorian times by a Ms. Bloomer who simply wanted to ride her bicycle and needed appropriate underthings to do so. Today, you can still find bloomers ranging from knee length to hipster short length.

There’s even some fabulous bloomers to go with your steampunk outfits.

Playful Fashion: Kate Spade

‘All Typed Up Clyde’ by Kate Spade 2010.

What better way to liven up a quiet Monday night with a bit of playful fashion by Kate Spade? She is undoubtedly one of my favourite designers out there with her characteristic sense of fun. I just want to share a few of my favourite Kate Spade things with you.

Pretty Socks

Anna Sui’s 2008 original sock statement on the runway. Are you rocking this look?

You might think I’m mad for writing about socks on the eve of full-time sandal-wearing weather. But guess again. Socks are so hot they’re cool. And what better way than to show them off with your peep toes or even your sandals if you’re bold enough.

Anna Sui socks available from Urban Outfitters.

I admit I have a weakness for fun socks. I don’t usually go for cutesy. But I do enjoy stylish statement socks. Anna Sui and Betsey Johnson do this well.

Cute Betsey Johnson Lingerie Socks. They even come in a nice package.

If you’re feeling a bit more DIY than ready-to-wear, you can knit up a pair of your own socks or stockings.

Longing for Spring Socks pattern by Friederike Erbslein.

And the grand finale of the spring sock handmade pattern list is by Lisa Whiting for Vogue Knitting. I’d love to make these!
