Vintage Love

Some people have a passion for fashion, some people have a passion for vintage, some people have both. I am one of those people who have both. I love vintage. Vintage clothing and accessories have an almost romantic touch. You may never know who wore them before you or what they wore them to. This adds a touch of mystery and makes me love vintage even more. The following pieces are vintage pieces are pieces that have walked their way not only into my closet but into my heart.These belts can add flair to any outfit. I tend to wear the leather one at least once a week, while I still haven't worn the gold one.
Ah, my vintage Christian Dior 100% silk top. This has to be one of my best vintage finds ever. When I originally bought it, it was a bodysuit but I cut it and voila! A chic, trendy top was born.
This light sea green floor length dress is my favorite vintage piece in my wardrobe. To me this dress represents fashion, vintage and romance at their best. It is a light, airy beautiful dress that was purchased at an estate sale for $1. The price was amazing and I snatched up this beauty as fast as I could. When I got home, I tried it on and to my delight it fit me perfectly! It is still waiting to be worn however, sitting on a special hanger among my many other dresses in my closet. I plan to wear this dress on a very special occasion next year. Prom. With a little alteration, this dress will dazzle everyone.
This luggage set was a gift from my parents. I love vintage suitcases and this one even looks good in my room.
My vintage pearl clip was a recent purchase and I can't wait to wear it. The cameo I've had for a while now and is always a great source of inspiration.
These gloves represent femininity and chicness at their prime. Even though I don't wear them often, I like to just have them.
This vintage camera case may seem simple but I love it. I use it as a purse and it matches so many of my outfits!
