Vintage Inspiration

So if you can’t tell already, I’m obsessed with all things vintage. I love playing dress up: whether it be 1920’s, 1930’s, 1940’s or the 50’s. I love dressing up and belonging to an era I could only dream of being in!

My style has evolved into combining modern pieces to convey a retro look. One easy way to do that is an amazing pair of heels, a sun hat, and a gingham dress.

I love this look – and I own tones of gingham. If you’d like to recreate this look I would suggest looking online at Ruche, like in my previous post, for some great vintage inspired pieces.

I really love white straw hats. This one was from Goorin Bros Hat Shop. Their Chicago location is in Wicker Park.

These lovely shoes are Naturalizer from DSW. They are the Mattison Heel in Black. This type of shoe is ideal for vintage inspired outfits. It’s reminiscent of the 1930’s and 1940’s. They are very comfortable and look stunning!
