Hello! I recently teamed up with Allison Strang to represent her Etsy shop, The Nebula Shop. The Nebula Shop carries the prettiest vintage clothing and accessories. Take a look for yourself here and discover vintage gem after vintage gem. She sent over two swoon-worthy vintage pieces from her shop and I've been eager to share photos of them both with y'all. The first item that The Nebula Shop sent over was this unique textured seventies tent dress. I love its rich colors, textural intrigue and interesting silhouette. Stay tuned to see the other gorgeous vintage beauty that The Nebula Shop sent my way! 

I wanted to play up the groovy seventies print of the dress so I layered a vintage patchwork fur coat over the dress. I love the way that the patterns and textures of the two pieces interact for an entirely unique aesthetic. Heeled mod booties and French chic cat-eye shades further emphasized the vintage style of the look. Simple, stylish golden accessories perfected the look. 

I usually go for more colorful looks but I'm really digging the collection of neutrals in this look. It feels very sophisticated yet at the same time, still very true to my personal style. I'd suggest "Day Dreams in Paris, 1974" as an alternative title for this post.

Hello! You know how most people consider a little black dress a crucial wardrobe essential? Well, I'd also consider a little pink dress a crucial wardrobe essential- at least in my own wardrobe. I recently counted and discovered that I own the same number of pink dresses as I do of black dresses. I pulled one of my favorite little pink dresses out for this look: this dreamy, pale pink tiered beauty.  I love its flattering neckline, feminine color and boho silhouette. 

I styled the dress with a chic cream-colored vintage jacket for this look. My great grandmother made this coat for my grandmother and I'd definitely consider it one of my most cherished pieces in my wardrobe. I highlighted the golden color of the jacket's buttons with my pair of golden platform boots. I played up the retro vibes of the look with a gorgeous golden vintage purse, a couple vintage Chanel button accessories and peach-colored cat-eye sunglasses. I added a touch of trendy style to the look with white fishnet stockings. A swipe of peach lipstick and a vintage seventies neck scarf perfected the look.

Hello! Shein recently sent me this free-spirited shirt to feature on my blog and I love its sheer texture, embroidered details and boho colors. This is Shein's "Embroidered Mesh Babydoll Blouse" and it retails for $18 here. I wanted to combine the bohemian style of the top with my signature seventies flair for a super laid back, vintage-inspired boho look. I paired the top with a rad pair of floral bellbottoms to do just that. Because what says "seventies boho" better than a pair of free-flowing bellbottoms? I also love how the combination of prints adds visual intrigue to the look.

I made the look feel even more "Free People" with a shaggy, cream-colored sweater and statement platform heels. I accessorized with a pink pair of pompom earrings, yellow aviator shades and a handful of bohemian rings. A chic green purse and pink velvet scrunchie perfected the look.
