We hate winter.  Like, we hate it.  It's probably partially because it gets dark so early or even the cold (of course) but, we both also always feel like the weather limits our wardrobe creativity and that makes everything even more dreary.  That being said, we're always on the lookout for good vintage and reproduction pieces that will help mix things up and brighten our cold weather attire.  I'm regularly on the hunt for vintage 1940's sweaters and one day, while lurking Etsy, I came across Ains & Elke Style Haus and her amazing reproduction knitwear creations.  The pieces we're wearing are based off this infamous Heart & Dagger sweater featured in a 40's issue of Life Magazine and these 1950s cute little decorate Chalkware fish.

We particularly loved how comfortable these sweaters are since so many vintage ones are insanely itchy.  Since we both have delicate skin (and Amanda a wool allergy) it was nice to not have to worry about insane reactions.  We did have our sweaters custom made to our measurements, which is an amazing option for those of us who do not fit in to a normal size range.  Since we love our sweaters extttra tight this was super important to us.
