You ever think back to the simple things you used to find entertaining as a child ? Two of my favorite hobbies as a kid was playing in the dirt (I know gross lol) and playing dress up in my grandmothers closet. While my mom used to threaten me every time she saw me taking a step closer to the dirt, my grandmother didn’t mind me playing in her closet not one bit. I guess it was something about the dirt that made me feel closer to the earth, maybe I thought I was actually planting?
I have no idea lol
Scanning my grandmothers closet goes without explanation. I’ve obviously been obsessed with vintage clothes since a kid ! I would try on her sequin dresses, shoulder padded blazers, pointy toe pumps, mini leather purses and her jewelry, omg don’t get me started on the jewelry! There’s just something so appealing about older pieces that excite me till this day. I love having a piece that only belongs to me and can’t be easily found at your typical clothing store.
The best part of rocking a vintage piece is that you can take the simpliest outfit from basic to eye catching. This outfit for example is so simple and basic without the added blazer and accessories. I threw on a cropped sleeveless top from Topshop, a pair of biker shorts from Forever 21, a vintage stripped blazer from Ltrain vintage, a black leather fanny pack, shockingly found at Tj maxx, vintage black leather boots from Poshmark, my favorite gold clip on earrings found at a random accessory shop and viola ! I took this look from simple to sexy without over exposure and stayed on trend ! What are some of your favorite vintage pieces ?
