Vanity + Vintage #04


The Dated Sessions:

This week's installment includes a sparkled treasure, a fitted flashback, and lovable lace that I'm so excited to share with you all. Since I have recently been influenced by drops of leather and lace, (as well as specific locations for holiday planning,) it seemed befitting to include a vintage jacket from my closet—in addition to a handful of other gems that I'm certainly eager to wear again.


Over the weekend I wore this leather jacket (below), which had not come out of my closet for a warm greeting in years... 2yrs. to be exact. Reminiscent of perusing through my parent's coat/jacket closet when I was a little girl this jacket reminds me of a time when I finally knew that I loved fashion. Thoughts of how hip my parent's clothing was entered my mind as I watched each piece draped from the hangers (begging for me to take a peek). Though, I acquired this particular piece from a vintage store somewhere in L.A., I still love it!
The vintage lace and leather fringe scarf is a dated favourite that I picked up in New York circa 2001. I also decided to add a small satin tie on the chain of my boots to complete this look.
Black Patent leather croc handbag. Yes, small & shiny!

I'm quite a fan of artistic accessories, precious stones of diverse types and classes, as well as costumed jewellery. I love this encrusted pin because of the versatile functions that I've deemed for its use.

Wearing this piece as a brooch, belt trim, hat adornment, or anything else will suffice! With that being said, I do believe that I actually may have used this on a dull handbag even at one point. I know, I cannot help it, making your fashion selections personal is what it's all about!

  1. Isn't something. I remember finding out my mother was stylish one day too. And started wearing her clothes: 70's disco dresses in the 80's. Well, I had a blast even though I wasn't popular with my fashion choices :D The boots look amazing! Instant sex appeal.

  7. I love your croc bag!! and Lace is something that can makes anything and/or anyone feel sexy. It's one of my go-to fabrics when I'm feeling ugly, for lack of a better word.

  19. I know there's all this stuff going around the internet on how people don't want to see more than 3 photos of any one outfit but I don't agree. I want to see more of that jacket! It's just too cool. And the necklace and croc bag too. Great look!
