Fair Isle and Furbies

Fair Isle and Furbies

Fair Isle and Furbies

I found this delightful little sweater whilst vintage shopping in New Orleans. It's generally impossible not to find vintage treasures in New Orleans, but I have to say I wouldn't have taken this one home if not for some well-needed peer pressure from my little shopping peer, S. If she had her druthers, I would have come home with a few additional things (aside from a beautiful lace dress that I just couldn't let go).

Almost fell here. Not the most agile of creatures. No, that we are most certainly not.

Also busted out the soon-to-be much-loved furry boots (affectionately dubbed "the furbies"). They keep my ankles so warm and toasty!

"furbies" - you are too funny! I was looking for the funny little toy to make an appearance. But I like the booties way more.

Warm ankles and sweet little vests are must-haves this fall it seems.

I LOVE that sweater! I feel as if you should be waltzing around Iceland in that outfit (though, I know nothing about Iceland, just my imagination).

Gorgeous!

Upon seeing the word "Furbies" in the title my mind was brought back to horribly scary childhood toys but seeing your post I now know that furbie refers to your amazing boots! So so soo chic!
