Extraordinary things can be accomplished from the ordinary. This is particularly true when it comes to styling vintage clothing. I think some of the best dresses starts with the simplest designs – and many are home sew and probably lurking in your closet or availabe at an etsy shop right now. Begin with basics, such as pleated full skirt 50s dress, lovely bag, belt, boater hat then pair with a fresh from the market statement shoes and the result will delight you!

For instance this vintage dress I’m wearing is going up in the shop this week! yes it is! I wore the dress for a quick photo shoot when I entered the Chictopia “shoe lover” contest for payless here. I simply adhere to the above mentioned rules to achieve this girl meet tough outfit.

P.s. I know I’m late on the giveaways but wait until you see the next one! I like doing giveaways because it is a way I express my appreciation for following, reading and commenting on my blog and for your friendship.

P.p.s. I have followed 75 new followers up to date but I need a little help, Please leave a comment on this post and I’ll be sure to click on everyone’s name and follow! I wish there was an easier way to do this. “Leave comment here and I’ll follow you”
