I'm writing to you from my comfy couch, knee deep in Kleenex and loads of medicines. Working with children (many who are sick this time of the year) has done a number on me and I'm laid up for a bit. Since I'm not up to any outfit posting I thought I'd share some vintage inspired things that you can buy on a budget. These things are items I think ladies who are interested in vintage/vintage inspired looks will appreciate, and certainly will not break the bank. Now you can feel vintage and vixen-like on the cheap.
Stockings are something that can be quite expensive. I have a couple of fully fashioned ones (vintage and new) that were a little pricier, but if you want that look and don't want to spend the money Doll House Bettie has two classic stockings that are perfect. They have a nude with black seams and the black with seams as well. At $8 a pair they are certainly a steal. I have some and they are not fully fashioned but they are 100% nylon and feel and look expensive for how inexpensive they are.
A Garter belt is something that is a must to hold up your pretty stockings and can also be quite pricey. I found a lovely Rago 6 strap on Amazon that really fits the bill. Only $35 and since it's Rago you know it's a good quality item.
A classic bra that gives you that bullet bra-esque shape can also get up there price wise. I mentioned this in my last post, but Amazon carries a great one by Exquisite Form for only about $12.80. I have one, and I still use my bullet bra pads to fill out the very tips of the bra, but it creates a wonderful vintage shape. In three colors it can go great with all your outfits.
High Waisted Undies are something that will complete your look. When wearing anything high waisted if you have low waisted undergarments on it can leave a crease and look a little odd. Amazon has some by Illusion's that are quite inexpensive.
Doll House Bettie also has some amazing quality undies (I loveee Doll House Bettie if you couldn't tell) as well. They aren't quite as cheap but some are not terribly expensive. You should browse around if you're in the market.
Are there any brands that have classic garments but aren't super expensive that you love too?
