Laced Up In A Vintage Lace Blouse

I bought this lace blouse on Ebay seven years ago. It is part of a co-ord from the beginning of the 20th century. Sometimes I like to wear it vintage-y, other times I like to make it contemporary like today. I chose to pair it with fringed jeans and a leather biker jacket to tone down the rock vibe of the outfit.

I shot this outfit in the late afternoon when we were finally graced with arrays of sun. I love the golden hour for the soft light it provides but it seems to never last long in the UK. The sun sets so soon here that I barely had 45 minutes to take all the pictures I wanted as it started to darken at 4.30pm.  Nonetheless, I still love the contrast between the pictures. Under the sun, the lace blouse highlights my rings while when it’s darker it becomes a dramatic piece.

Can we talk about these jeans? I got them at the same time I found my star-spangled ones. When I saw their fringes I totally fell in love. With them no need to exaggerate. I felt though adding some patent leather boots would have been great! If you didn’t tell yet I’m fond of the patent leather and metallic shoe. Somehow I feel adding a large brimmed hat and voilà! I’m ready for the next fesitival

How do you pair/wear your vintage pieces?

    Loved this!! When it comes to my vintage pieces of clothing, I pair them either with something new and funky or with another vintage piece ❤😆

      Hello Andrea!

      Thank you for your comment!

      I’m glad you love the outfit! I don’t really mix many vintage pieces together but that’s something I’m not against. With vintage I love playing between old and new.

      Hello Elizabeth,

      Thank your for your comment! I’m glad you like the outfit! I’m also like you for vintage pieces. Especially with that lace blouse that can look quite costume-y if paired with another vintage piece.

      Emmanuelle,
      Xx
