Favorite Vintage Gown - Wearable ART

Gorgeous Printed Silk Gorgeous Printed Silk[/caption] After watching the Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet last night, I decided to look at all my vintage gowns. I don't get to wear them very I figured, why not feature my favorites. This is one of my favorite vintage finds. I love this 60s dress. The bodice fits like a glove and the graphic and beautiful art on the skirt is even better in person. In this picture the waist is accentuated by a beautiful sapphire brooch. I think for this...

Wearing Vintage

20121227-004018.jpg We were hosting a Christmas get-together and I was running late as usual. I grabbed one of my trusty vintage leisure pants, paired it with my Gap tank and threw a Ann Taylor cardigan on top. I love the mixture of the different patterns with the common orangey coral color in the pant and cardigan. I was so comfortable all evening. *photo courtesy of my Mother-in-law

Capes...a Winter Wear Alternative

Putting It Together...Mod Update

20121226-195514.jpg It's one thing one thing to purchase vintage clothing...but how the heck do you incorporate it into your wardrobe without looking like you are wearing a "costume"? A little bit of mix and match goes a long way...especially when vintage is mixed with modern accessories and shoes. I've shared a classic example here. LOOK 1. Vintage mod dress + Jimmy Choo knee-high boots in camel + vintage off-white ostrich leather purse. LOOK 2. Vintage mod dress + vintage suede ankle boots + black tights
