Classic Elegance: Vintage Finds

Michelle_A_Glamour-66

Hello All,

Hope you are having a great day. I’ve always had a love for vintage clothing;  the structure, the fabric and the details on vintage pieces are not often found in pieces today. Last summer, I popped into Barrio Vintage to browse their amazing collection of vintage pieces. I stumbled about this gorgeous vintage high low skirt made of taffeta with flock. I could not pass up such an amazing find.

It is perfect for dressier events. In honesty, I bought the skirt mainly for the beautiful fabric.

I paired the skirt with a bustier top that I thrifted a couple of years back. The pairing looked so amazing together. The perfect outfit for a formal or a ball.

Something Old, Something New: Putting it All Together

My photographer and I wanted to try something new by doing a night time shoot. Let me know how it turned out. One of the hardships with night time shoots is always lighting. I think he did a good job with what little light we had available.

I have recently examine my closet and realized that my closet is a mixture of pieces that I have collected over the years; pieces from college that I try too keep in good condition, hand me down pieces, pieces I have found on Ebay, discounted and outlet items, some vintage and thrifted acquisitions and new pieces. Despite where I have found most of the pieces from my closet, one thing remains the same, they all fit my style. It’s not as incohesive as described above, there is definitely a running style thread that makes all the pieces in my closet fit together.

This outfit is just that, a hodge podge of different items that just fit together.  From my pairs of Christian Louboutin heels to vintage items liked this polka dot skirt which was a great find from Barrio Vintage, a local vintage shop, to the cropped short sleeve sweater from the  Peter Pilotto for Target collection and the glue that ties them to together, is a classic white button down shirt that can be worn with anything.

One quote that sticks out to me from one of my favorite designers as a child, Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades, Style is Eternal.” Stay Stylish Ladies and Gentlemen.

XOXO,

Elle
