following my previous post i thought it might be fun to post pics of some of my vintage pieces. I'm trying to follow some sort of theme here - I think it's so much more interesting that way. let's see how long I can keep this up!
Here are two vintage dresses that I got as a gift.
They have been sitting in my wardrobe for years but I refuse to give them away - I had the polka dotted one altered because it was too big, but I never got round to wearing them. I've taken them out numerous times in an attempt to wear out, but just couldn't seem to get the look right. If I had the chance to go to Fashion Nation's 2nd anniversary party (party theme: Wear that item you never dared to!), I would probably have worn one of these.
Skirt from Oppt Shop
Clutch from Swirl. I love this clutch, especially the shiny patent material and gunmetal colour. I feel like a lady when I carry it! Sadly I don't get to use it very much because I usually need a giant bag to hold all my stuff. So only for special occasions.
I wanted to post one final item - the most vintage of them all - a blue velvet cropped blazer that I got from House of Japan for less than $10. But I must have given it away (it was kinda grotty and the lining was fallling apart) 'cos I can't find it now! Anyway, I wore that only once I think when I was an adventurous design student.
And one final pic - not vintage, but of the skirt I bought recently and posted about before. With tank from Marks & Spencer and my current most favourite-st shoes from Pedder Red. Other accessory: Baby Ellis.
