Outfit Post: Vintage



As you may have noticed by now, I've decided to post randomly whenever I feel like it. So yes, it's been a while since I've felt like it! But yesterday's two outfits called for some photos because I'm totally in love with my new vintage finds!

The dress is an antique. It is hand sewn from the 1950's. It came with elbow sleeves and a corset belt. I had to insert a new zipper in the back, and of course, I had to hem it up about 3 inches! My mother-in-law found it at an antique store for me. I adore it!

The blouse is another vintage find that I found at a vintage shop in downtown Grand Rapids on sale for only $5! It's such a romantic blouse. I paired it with my new 7 For All Mankind jeans that I got for free from a thrift store. Originally I had it with a skirt and tights, but my husband couldn't get over how old fashioned I looked, so I thought the jeans made it more modern.

Hope you all enjoyed the holidays and are excited about the New Year!
