Favorite vintage pieces-part 1

A few nights ago my mom and I took some of our favorite pieces of vintage/thrifted clothing items to style-and took pictures! On Monday my mom and I went to a Goodwill that has unsually high volume of vintage asian jackets, which sort of fit into the luxe robe look that I posted about a few posts back. I’ve been working these pieces around a Fall 07 Miu Miu skirt that I got at our Neiman’s outlet during a sale. I wish I had up-close pictures of the fabric (it’s so cool!) but I just sent it to the tailor to be taken in a little.

Thrifted satin coat, H&M tank top, Miu Miu pleated skirt, Chloe shoeboot

Here mom is wearing her sixties studded Givenchy shift. It was a great find on eBay. She wears it over Hysteric Glamour jeans with Prada heels.

This angora sweater I’m wearing was about to be trashed by my mom’s friend-it was rescued and bought to me and is now one of my favorite cold weather pieces. The angora is so luxe that it looks like a fur coat.

Worn with Miu Miu skirt, sequin tube top from UO, Margiela boots

Mom just got this vintage Chanel jacket from eBay-paired again with Hysteric Glamour jeans and Givenchy lace up heels.

Those are just a few of the things we tried on-later I hope to do another post full of my favorite vintage things-there are so many waiting to be worn in the back of my closet.

Happy Fourth of July to American readers!

    Also, I love the first outfit best. It’s clever how you balanced all the pale peachy colors with black accessories.

    The Miu Miu skirt looks great and surprisingly versatile. I saw it on Net-a-Porter awhile ago; I believe it’s some kind of jacquard?
