Blue vintage shirt/ Vintage beaded clutch

Thursday, January 20, 2011

I found this vintage shirt while doing one of my weekly Out of the Closet runs and fell in love with the vibrant blue print.
It  has a cool secretary tie for the front (and I wore it that way with a pencil skirt and nerdy glasses for a pitch meeting)
But currently loving it tied in the back to pop up the collar and give it some edge.
This vintage clutch was one of those finds where I actually gasped when I saw it.
It's so glamorous with such intricate beaded detail and in practically mint condition.
I love the idea of mixing girly and tough, strong and feminine at the same time.
This pretty much sums up my ideal outfit! Now tell me... what's yours?
Shirt and clutch - vintage
Skirt - Forever 21 
Shoes - Vince Camuto Moma's
Silver cuff & sunglasses - Forever 21
Necklace - H&M

  13. I love that outfit! For me it's black jeans, a cute wedge, a crisp blazer, a v-neck pocket silk t-shirt and a nice leather belt!

  14. Very cool shirt. I love the way you wore it with the collar lifted up. The shoes look great under that skirt. I don't think I have one ideal outfit. It has to be an outfit that makes me feel great and that could be so many different things.
