Current Vintage





Outfit Details:
vintage red cape - Dronning Vintage
striped top - Madewell
lace shorts (old) - Madewell
over the knee socks - HUE
Legacy Duffle - c/o Coach
Late Night Platforms (on sale) - c/o Seychelles
scalloped tights - ModCloth
Elizabeth and James Lafayette sunglasses - ShopBop
MAC Russian Red lipstick


There are certain things that will stay in my closet forever, and most of them are vintage. I only bought this little cape a year and a half or so ago, but it's one of those special standouts that will probably make the cut each time I clean out my closet. I have some vintage pieces that have stayed with me since high school, and have been known to keep some of my elementary school shirts around (ahem, NKOTB and a Margate Panthers shirt). It's strange to think that one day we'll look back on today's clothing and label it "vintage" - isn't it? Are there any pieces in your current closet that you think you'll keep around for the long term?

  4. I have this maxi I got at F21 a few years back. Apparently no one else wanted it cause it was on sale for less than $10 as I remember it. But guess what? It's turned out to be one of my favorite items and something that I quite often get compliments on when I wear it out. I will wear it forever as long as it holds up - and I really hope it does last forever!

  7. love it!

    I have a good few pieces from high school that I love and couldn't part with... in particular a pretty silk paisley top that makes me feel good when I wear it... It's not in the condition it was when I bought it and I should really sew a couple tiny holes at the seams, but I love it anyway. The only other item that I'm probably that attached to (although I rarely do a closet clean out anyway so I probably am attached to everything!) is my wedding dress. It's a green 50s style cocktail dress.

  8. I have a 1930's velvet bolero, featuring star shaped sequins forming a pattern on the shoulders that has been with me since high school, surviving even the most brutual closet clear outs.

  29. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours ever. I love the subtle sexiness, and the cape is SO lovely. Its also just funny to read your blog and see references to South Florida- I'm a Coral Springs girl. Do you remember Jeaneration? I'm not sure if they are still there, but I spent so much of my allowance money there growing up, on their amazing vintage jeans. I still have a pair from when I was 13 that still fits. They are from the '70's, perfect elephant ear bell bottoms, made of some other type of soft fabric than the demin we know today. I save them for special occasions, even though they are quite tattered on the ends. They'll always be one of those things in my collection that I return to over and over again.
