Into It, Intimates / Thread Beat

il_fullxfull.360020304_1dfqI came across Thread Beat on etsy almost 2 years ago. I immediately fell in love with this labels vibe, mostly for it’s unique sleepwear and intimates. To me, designer Rebecca Tanner-Russell’s inspiration for her sleepwear very distinctly comes from the 1920s to 1930s. I imagine much of these garments to be worn by the mothers of poor families during the Dust Bowl years – pieces worn around the house before covering up in a button down cotton midi dress. But nowadays anyone of these garments could be worn both inside and outside the house. I’d be happy to wear something like the outfit pictured above during the Summer, that is for certain.

My favourites: Button Eyelet Slip Underdress, Cotton Bralette and Bloomer set, Cotton Buttonback Petticoat and Bralette, Cotton Buttonwaist Camisole and Petticoat

Velvet & Cable Knit

It’s hard to come by a good cable knit pullover. Depending on how you like the fit, it can seem like an endless expedition to find the right one. That being said, I have a pretty great one in the shop today. If you’re not really an over-sized pullover kind of person, this one checks off all the boxes in terms of color, fit and warmth. I also listed some pretty sweet velvety softness (makes you want to touch your own thighs all day), and an amazing 1940’s dress. When I’m wearing it I honestly feel like it takes me back to the Dust Bowl days. Pairing it with the Blixen Boots, it’s like a Dust Bowl match made in heaven. And last but NOT least…the novelty print dress. GAH! If this dress fit me, it would be going nowhere. I originally bought it for myself without trying it on (stupid). I was obsessed the second I saw it. It’s just the right amount of sweet with weirdness. Its glorious! Come check out the shop today. These items want to come home with you!
