When I first started this blog, a great number of posts featured this very love. In a sense, today’s post takes me back to my roots =) See examples here, here, here, and here.
I had the idea to team up with some of my FAVS in the vintage styling game and happily they have joined me for today’s post, all featuring the theme, “Vintage Love”!
Please check out their vintage looks today:
Today’s look features a vintage dress, bracelet, and handbag. I scored this dress on a trip back east, and the cost was $2! This highlights one of the many reasons that I will always love vintage clothing: You can obtain extremely well made clothing for a bargain price. I guesstimate that this dress is at least 30 years old, yet the color, design, and garment as a whole have remained 100% intact.
I’ve worn this dress a number of times, and styled it several different ways. For this look I went for ‘sassy’, and added in a modern shoe and red lippie to seal the deal. I happened on this red and white bracelet in my vintage birdcage (which is where I store 95% of my bangles) and wouldn’t know: It was a perfect match. I just LOVE it when things match perfectly =)
This dress has belt loops, but it did not come with a belt. Instead of cutting them off, I opted to add a thin belt from my collection. Fortunately, I had one on hand that matched up wonderfully.
If you find yourself loving vintage pieces, but unsure about how to get started on the fun, here are a few things that I have learned:
1. Shop off the beaten path. Go to stores that everyone does not already know about!
2. Go during the week, early, or just before closing. This is when restocks are often made.
3. Think I outside the box when you spot a great piece. For instance, my handbag is actually for storing perfume =)
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post Beauties, I most certainly did!
Until next time,
