Everyday Vintage: 2.22.18
Welcome to Everyday Vintage, my
weekly-ish monthly-ish random roundup of how I incorporate vintage finds into my everyday life.
I haven’t done one of these posts in a while, so I’ve got a bunch of photos to share today. We’ve had quite a variety of weather lately – cold, dry winter to warm, dry spring and now back to below freezing temps – but NO RAIN! (We need rain.)
So this edition of Everyday Vintage has a mix of warm and cold weather outfits. Hope these posts inspire you to find vintage and/or thrifted finds to incorporate in your wardrobe.
Love this vintage vest I found recently – a combination of tan canvas (with quilted stitching!) and cream faux-shearling and wood buttons. It’s SO 70s!
I found this vintage necklace at an estate sale – a mix of bold blue and green beads.
Two-for-one vintage! A vintage men’s Levi’s gingham button-up and a vintage down vest that’s SUPER warm.
Cleaning out my closet (ignore the clothes piled on the settee)! This chambray tunic is vintage, and the vest is thrifted faux fur.
I like this vintage navy slip dress paired with a turtleneck and cuffed jeans. I haven’t worn this yet (need a little bit warmer temps), but I like the layers.
I was still cleaning out my closet/playing dress up (our bedroom was a DISASTER). (Shall we play I Spy? Faux fur? Check. Multiple pairs of shoes? Check. Old prom dress? Check. Bathrobe? Check. Giveaway bag? Check. Pool noodles? Check. (Those are great to put in boots to hold their shape.) It almost never looks this bad. In fact, all of our clothes have been put away every day since I did the clean out. But it was BAD for a little bit. Husband doesn’t get it, but when I clean stuff out, it always looks MUCH WORSE before it gets better. Anyone else like that?)
I thrifted this vintage coat a couple of years ago, and it’s been getting lots of wear this winter.
I paired this summer maxi dress with a vintage turtleneck to make it wearable for winter.
I added these earrings that I made from vintage beads. (I’ve got more like this coming to my shop soon!)
This was the sweater I was cutting shoulder pads out of a few weeks ago on Instagram. A long cardigan with pockets – perfect!
I found this crisp white Dickie’s oxford in the boys’ section at the thrift store – it fits perfectly, and I added my favorite 70s down vest.
Apparently this is the puffy vest edition! I love them in the winter, and I usually find them for less than $5. This thifted red one is paired with my favorite vintage blouse – “Country Sophisticates” by Pendleton. (I love those vintage labels.)
(Bandaid not thrifted. ;) I almost lost the tip of my finger chopping basil last weekend. Still don’t have complete feeling back yet, but it’s healing up nicely.)
And, I saved the best for last:
I found an orange vintage boy’s puffer vest for The Boy while thrifting last weekend. It matches MY orange vintage men’s puffer vest that I thrifted years ago. He wanted us to take a matchy-selfies to post. It wasn’t until I looked back at my photos later that I saw what he was up too. Love this goofy boy. ♥
