style: vintage inspired

So, I am mildly obsessed with this outfit.

I’m trying to pinpoint exactly what I love so much about it, and I think it’s this: this whole look is a lot more “cool” than what I’d usually wear, but at the same time, I felt totally comfortable in it. When I pick out what to wear, I’m usually pretty reserved — I tend to go for classic shapes, cuts and patterns, and if I want to make them a little more interesting, I use accessories. But for this, I paired fun accessories with this even more fun romper — and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! Unique Vintage [1] loaned me a number of dresses to create outfits around, so look for more of these to come!

I’m not much of a vintage shopper, but I’m always so impressed with the incredibly unique outfits people put together. My “vintage” items tend to come from my mother’s closet rather than from cool, trendy thrift stores, and I’m pretty sure my mother doesn’t own a purple romper. So I like the idea of getting something that feels a little vintage-y, but still comes in modern sizes and cuts.

I had a tough time deciding whether to post this week on my dress for the Emmys, but I’m going to leave it as a surprise for now! I absolutely can’t wait.
