I had a nice surprise waiting for me on my front porch the other day. A package from more or less vintage with some goodies inside 😮 . Best timing ever because I had a very mentally draining day at work. I lit up like a Christmas tree, tore the package into shreds, and had an aaaaahhhhhhh moment. Inside I was gifted 4 pieces of clothing: a blazer, a midi skirt, a white blouse, and a slip dress.
If you do not know more less vintage is an online clothing store out of Georgia. They have the cutest vintage clothing from various decades. Sadly, due to COVID-19 they had to shut down temporarily. I can not wait for their return because these ladies have an eye for thrifted fashion. It was a no brainer to create an outfit based on these selected pieces. So in honor of more or less vintage I created 4 looks to continue inspiring, creating in the hopes of one day wearing them once quarantine is over for good.
Quick Disclaimer: First and foremost excuse my pasty pale legs for they have not seen the sun in a while.
Who doesn’t love a black floral slip dress? This dress has so much versatility it can be worn in any season. Since the warmer months are approaching I had summer in mind. Per usual I went with the casual route pairing this cute dress with my black and white vans and brim hat to cover me from the sun’s rays. This dress is also a good day to night piece with a switch of a shoe. Heels or flat sandals would look just as fly depending on your mood. Simple layered necklaces and chunky earrings will add a little modern flare to this vintage piece.
The white blouse is such a staple piece that will never go out of style. I am thinking this blouse is from the 80s era since it came with thick built in shoulder pads, pleated shoulder detail, and baby balloon sleeves. I am in love with its vintage silhouette. Made so well, this lovely blouse has stood against the test of time.
I wanted to take this skirt to another level which, honestly it didn’t need much leveling up. This baby is a statement piece and then some. I thought mixing this 90s print with gold accents would create a gaudy street style look that I love. My first reaction to this skirt was whoa. It is a little intimidating when you first see it. I wanted to tone it down just a smidge with a white racer back style tank top. A solid colored top can tame a heavy print. I knew my accessories would be just as loud so I wanted the look to stay wearable.
This last look I decided to add contrasting prints to create a maximalist outfit. Instead of toning it down I went all out with the jewelry and paired leopard print biker shorts to my busy printed blazer. I kept my hair and shoes fairly simple to keep the focus on the outfit. I haven’t decided for sure where I would go in this, maybe date night or girls night? Only one way to tell once quarantine is over 😛
I wanted to thank more or less vintage for sending me these items it seriously came at the best time. Wishing you guys the best in health, safety, and peace. Love you all.
