Ice skating at Rockefeller Center

We both love ice skating, and the iconic Rockefeller Center rink just opened for the winter, so on our final morning in New York we took to the ice.




Top tip I picked up from Sadie of The Vintage News, a modern cardigan worn backwards is a perfectly vintage style back-button blouse! Plus it totally solves the problem of button-gape. Two pieces of modern knitwear which had been languishing in my wardrobe have found a new lease of life since I came across this genius idea - they've barely been out of rotation in weeks!


Outfit details: Cardigan, Boden via charity shop; skirt, handmade by me; gloves, vintage fair I think?; beret, Tesco (!).

  2. Oh that is a brilliant idea! A lovely pattern on the cardigan as well. Your skirt is amazing. Great work there as well. Do you have a post for it?

  3. That looks like such a blast! I'm really enjoying all of your great NYC posts and seeing what you wore while there (complete with your fab new pink locks).

  6. When I saw this post on my blog log I exclaimed (quietly to myself, of course); there's MY skirt. Bwwaaaahhhh. It's definitely on my "Desire" list. http://sewlyricallyvintage.wordpress.com/desires/

    Work it, girl!

    Cheers,

  12. Lovely skating outfit, and the 'Cityscape' skirt works so well with the NY theme. :)

    Oh, and I love that backwards cardigan trick! I use it on two knit tops where button gap and the low neck are too much to handle, and it works beautifully. Those tops are favourites now whereas before they were perilously close to going in the donate pile! ♡
