Vintage Layers

Madewell Mira shoes

You know those sparkly fringe vests that you see at vintage shops?

Coat: H&M. Winter Leggings: American Apparel.  Beaded tank: Vintage. I LOVE this Topshop one.  Jumper: H&M men. Hat: H&M. Bag: Thrift DIY studded. Heels: Madewell

This is for when you have to go out on a freezing day ‘wearing something party-like’ but don’t want to freeze your a** off.

Order one or two sizes up in one of those beaded vests that’s everywhere now and layer over  a similar colored knit or soft t-shirt (long or short sleeved).  For a night out this month I’m trying it with a t-shirt.

Add a pencil skirt or ripped dark or light denim and heels.  Done.

Try it

    Gorgeous look and it makes me so happy to see you with your DIY studded bag again. I love that no matter how successful you become you still manage to keep it real. I don’t follow many fashion blogs anymore (they bore me — too many c/o items, too much Reward Style, too many similarities) but yours is one I’ll never tire of. I think you’re one of those people who was simply born with great style.

      Woah. Thank you always Sinead for being there. Sort of a far away cyber friend and supporter.
