what i wore...

November 02, 2011

// photo by the fashion gal //

there is something so unique about vintage slips that i adore SO much. i think it's the combination of feminine colors mixed with delicate laces that gets me every time! most of the vintage slips i own (or are usually drawn to) are a simple soft ballerina-pink. it's a color that you can slip right on and instantly feel ladylike & pretty. however, when i was at the flea market this past month {see post here}, i stubbled upon this AMAZING COBALT BLUE SLIP with almost a foot of floral lace that sweeps along the bottom just perfectly! needless to say, this was quit a score(!!!) and i think may be my NEW FAVORITE vintage slip!! 

*to balance the uber-bright-cobalt-blue i paired this fabulous piece with my favorite mary-jane wedges, black polish, and a simple ruffled tuxedo jacket... oh, and a vintage clutch with a vintage skinny belt!
**see more "what i wore's" on the left index under "the goodies"/"what i wore" xxoo(!)

Vanessa, this outfit is amazing! Loved the vintage inspiration and the bright colour of the dress. Not to mention the necklace that I thought it was a lovely, sparkling touch.

AMAZING. (and I use all caps sparingly) You look fantastic in that color and the style of that dress is just so unique and fanciful. Love.

Sweet Cherry Vintage Lingerie said...

Hi! Stumbled across this...This is actually a nightgown either by "Intime" or "Miss Elaine"..if you check the side seams, there is a hole where a belt would belt through, and you tie it around your back, creating a dramatic draping backline. I sell vintage lingerie and these are my most favorite nightgowns. Lovely to see nightgowns wore as day wear! Looking great!
