Hello! If there's one thing that I know about fashion, it would be that you really can't go wrong with an all-black outfit of the day. For this look, I kept that idea in mind and pulled out a couple of my favorite pieces of black clothing from my wardrobe. I started styling the look around this embroidered black top. I love its playful silhouette, polka dot mesh texture and pretty floral embroidery. I paired it with a little black circle skirt that mimicked its playful, breezy silhouette.

I added a punch of color to the look with a pair of burnt orange lace-up heels. Simple accessories contributed to the style of the look; I grabbed a chic pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses, black hoop earrings, a golden vintage watch and a green vintage clutch.

Head to Toe Vintage

Hello! I recently thrifted this beautiful pink dress and couldn't be any happier about it. I think I'd even go so far as to say that it's my favorite item that I've thrifted all year. I spotted it a few weeks ago at a Goodwill here in Richmond and its pretty, light pink color initially drew me in. When I picked it up off the rack, its true vintage 1970s style and sheer pink sleeves also captured my attention. It's much harder to thrift authentic vintage from the 1970s and to find a dress from the 70s as beautiful as this one truly feels like striking gold. And for less than $10? I internally let out a huge "YAS" at the thrift shop. 

I played up its retro flair for this look by styling it in a head-to-toe vintage ensemble. A mod pair of orange creamsicle earrings, aviator glasses and an obnoxious pink velvet scrunchie all enhanced the vintage style of the dress. A pretty pink vintage purse and silly vintage heels pulled the look together.
