1960's Gingham Dress, Vintage Blouse, Heels, Vintage Earrings: All Thrifted.
Whenever I come home to my full wardrobe, I tend to dress in a lot more of a retro style fashion. I can't bring all of my vintage and not versatile pieces to college, so whenever I come home I feel like I have a whole new, exciting wardrobe. Vintage clothing is seriously so much fun. I've been collecting for about five years now and although my collection isn't huge, I look forward to only growing it more in the future. I set up a clothing rack in my room last night when I got home filled with all of my favorite vintage pieces to display in my room. So pretty & inspiring to look at!
Right before I left for college I got bags and bags of vintage clothes from an elderly woman, and hadn't had a chance yet to style any of them up. This little gingham shift was one of the pieces! I got some real gems out of the lot--a blouse with zodiac signs embroidered down the placket, a dress with geisha print, a peach sailor shirt, and a legitimate girdle! Not that I'll be putting that on any time soon. That thing is so tiny it looks like it would fit my 10 year old sister.
With much love, Lauren.
