Vintage Hound

 Fashion Facts:: Jacket: Forever21 :: Blouse: Forever21 :: Skirt: Eddie Bauer :: Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita

This is a look that I put together for church for this past Sunday. Unfortunately, I never actually made it to the service due to unforeseen circumstances, but I thought I would share my ensemble anyways. This skirt is in the great classic houndstooth print, which just happens to be one of my personal favorites. Its one of those prints that you can pair with just about anything to create a classic chic look. I love the vintage feel of this look and I thought that my braids would give this look a modern edge but it ended up just looking reminiscent of a huge 60's bouffant. Classic prints and cuts, like this skirt, always look timeless no matter what era its from and that's the beauty of classic fashion. You could find a pencil or wiggle dress from the 50s and pair it with stilettos and a great clutch and look completely appropriate and modern because of the timeless silhouette.  For me, finding great vintage items is like striking gold, especially if I can actually fit them, the lovely ladies of yesteryear had itty-bitty little waists (and everything else for that matter!).  I know that more than likely its an item nobody else is going to have and the possible history behind it fascinates me. What are your thoughts on vintage clothing? Is it something that your interested in or do you find it strange to wear someones old clothes? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your week!
