Stolen

So I have something to confess. When I go home to Nashville I usually steal one or two items of clothing from my sisters. My sister Hannah is still waiting to get a lovely pair of sage green shorts back. This past weekend I went hunting in my sister Sarah's alterations pile and found a lovely forest green wool skirt that was perfect and this lovely polka dot dress.


I especially love the length. It's such a 30's/40's length. So beautiful.

sweater vintage/hip zipper
shoes neutralizers 
belt thrifted
bakelite bangles vintage

I love dressing in a vintage fashion, but since I can't always find affordable vintage I love improvising with thrifted things (or vintage inspired clothing). Even though this 80's dress is not a classic 30's dress, I feel like I've given it that feel by pairing it with my T-strap shoes, and little vintage cardigan. Also, adding a red lip doesn't hurt either. 

xo,

  2. Even if these aren't vintage, you look great, just like from the past. I wish I could steal from my sister, but she's much shorter than me, has got bigger breasts and quite different style.

  3. You're so lucky you have sisters to "borrow" from! My younger sister and I are wildly different sizes, so I do not get the benefit of an extended wardrobe. I love how you styled the dress, so pretty!

  4. I admire your dedication to dressing vintage c: the 80s always churns up some things that look a lot older, it seems. Which is ok with me! This dress looks fantastic c:
