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?
