STYLE {WISE} – Suddenly Seeking Sweater Girls

Lovely ladies, it seems we’ve been thinking of you a lot lately. It’s not by accident, for we have been meditating on many thoughts as of late about our many loves and desires when it comes to female fashions. In true E.O.F. Style we stepped back to the past for a little taste of times past to infiltrate our vintage vision for the future. When it comes to sweaters, it’s not hard to see how having a great one is top of the pops for most style driven Sams and Sallys. If it’s not one, it better be a hundred. There aren’t many sweater that go out of style, either. They are simply one of those timeless treasures that titillate… Indeed, there was a time when we imagined only the good girl donning a prim and proper sweater, but don’t be fooled. Many a femme fatale and vixen have adorned their bodies with an armor of angora to dumb found the senses. We looked back  the distant and recent past to pull some of the best images we could find that helped seduce and inspire.  Listen close, and you might hear the sweet, sweet, song of the Sweater Girls….

“I’ve got a twenty pound ball hanging on a chain around my neck.

I’ve got to get away, run before I’ll be called away.

I’ve got to break these chains, before I go insane.

I’ve got to get up and go, go any place I don’t know.

I’m gonna break away from all the chains that bind

And everyday I’ll wear what I want

And do what suits me fine…

I’m gonna break away…

Break away from the Everyday…”

-“Breakaway” sung by Toni Basil, Prod. by Ed Cobb.

{DO-IT-RIGHT} Sweater Weather: How-To Vintage Mens’ Knitwear Inspiration

Handsome Vintage Sweater Inspiration - Timeles & Classic

“The time has come”, the style man said, “To talk of many things . . . “

We’ll stop with the strange allusions, but we did want to talk of many things today.

Of style, of class, of tradition, and function. Of beauty and elegance, of aesthetic, also.

But most importantly, we speak to that uncompromising soul quivering deep within that refuses to

accept anything foreign of divination. . .  Meaning, you want to look good.

We all do, and that’s some strong power if you can harness it wisely.

Steve McQueen Doesnt Even Want To Go Into It

Now that the worst of winter (fingers crossed) seems to have passed

we’ve taken to leaving our heavy winter coats behind these last few days, and instead vying for a

classic approach to beating the cold: a good ole’ Winter Sweater.

Great for all that “Sweater Weather” out there; whether it be acrylic, wool, cashmere, or angora.

Put a Number on the Back of Your Sweater Too

Worn by fishermen, farmers, workmen, heroes, athletes, gods, teens, and idols.

They are aran, cable-knit, patterned, and geometric;

Textured, solid, V-neck, or button-up.

Knights of Knitwear

There are so many different ways to wear them. Don’t forget they are an important part of the repertoire for any well-dressed gentleman of distinct tastes.

We explored +Sweater Girls+ in the past, so now we shine an eye to the men of the past who have made the sweater great; showing how the perfect sweater can truly transform.

Knights of Knitwear Gather Round

Integrate these thoughts and inspirations into your daily ritual, and become part of the legendary timeline.

If you play your cards right, you might just live forever.

Or at least, like you did once.

When I stated in fashion, I had already adopted the sailor-striped sweater as my uniform; that way, I wouldn’t have to drive myself crazy trying to figure out what to wear.

Lovely Lydia {Vintage Style Inspiration}

You might remember the outrageously gorgeous Lydia from our Style Story “Daze of Being Wild“, and here’s some shots from a private session we were able to do together!

Lydia is a great friend to The Eye of Faith, and what we caught was beyond magic! We took disparate vintage finds and created an outfit that was 50s Fresh! A little sweet, a little sexy, and a little rock ‘n’ roll – just like Lydia!

Here are a few of our favorite shots arranged in a set we aptly named “Lovely Lydia“.

Please enjoy!

Lydia wore a 1980s Sparkly Knit with Angora Sleeve Sweater from THE EYE OF FAITH, Vintage Black Leather Cigarette Pant from THE EYE OF FAITH, Red Skyscraper Shoe by VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, White Gloves with Pearls from THE EYE OF FAITH.
