Hello! These photos are from a couple of days ago when I took the chance to show off my new vintage top. The second that I spotted this vintage beauty hanging in a thrift store earlier this week, I knew that it had to be mine. The intricate luxe beading and rich burgundy color of the top exude glamour and festivity. I'm also drawn to the top because it reminds me of something that would be found in Free People or Anthropologie's holiday collections which I've recently been swooning over. 

The top was a steal at a mere $10; I could hardly believe that I scooped up such a gorgeous vintage find for so little. Recently, I've been slacking finding vintage treasures like this one and I'm very happy to have purchased it. I could spend hours thinking about the stylish people that previously wore this top and all the parties and events that it was worn to. 

For a classic, put-together look, I styled the top with my black Skirt the Issue skirt, a pair of black tights and a pair of heeled booties. I glammed up the look with a leopard print, faux fur coat and swipe of dark lipstick. This is an ideal look for a holiday party.
