  • Yellow ribbons as earrings
  • 1930s style yellow blouse with Peter Pan collar with white Scottie Dog print – F21

When I lived in the Pacific NW, I could buy Navy pants at almost every vintage store, but I’ve never seen any in the south!
Suggestions for wearing 13 button Navy Pants:
– Change out the standard issue buttons with colorful ones
– Cut them off and hem them into shorts
– Replace the back tie with a colorful ribbon
– They gather dust/lint, so be sure to have a lint roller handy
– The number one rule: Don’t wear your sailor pants out drinking. You will not make it in time if you are drunkenly fumbling with the buttons.
