There are certain times in my life when I enjoy the pleasures of being female and wearing this 1950s vintage flared skirt is certainly one of them. Found this beauty at my favorite vintage store, Lost and Found, a couple of months ago and couldn't wait for the weather to break in order to wear it. So feminine and flirty, I couldn't help but feel like I was transfixed in time baking homemade pies and listening to old Billie Holiday and Nina Simone records (though I'd be a lot less domesticated). Decided to pair my lovely skirt with my Guess gold strap pumps and a black body suit from American Apparel that outlined my body, exposing the frame of my back. Gold drop earrings from Forever21 and silk black and gold outlined clutch from Henri Bendel were the perfect accessories to my timeless look. I absolutely love mixing vintage pieces with more modern wear. There's something so nostalgic about vintage pieces and I'm always fascinated with the story behind it. As cliche as it may sound, I often wonder about the woman who wore it, particularly with this skirt- Did she attend her first dance in it? Or kiss the guy of her dreams for the first time? Although my vintage pieces already have a story, it's something magical about creating my own memories in them.
