I think the best vintage finds are the ones that are glam enough to be statement pieces on their own but versatile enough to be worn more ways than one. The vintage top and belt in today’s outfit post are definitely in that category.
I’ve worn this vintage ’70s top and vintage Whiting & Davis belt more than once on this blog (see here, here, & here), each way different from the last. I don’t mind spending a bit more on vintage, especially when it’s one of a kind and of great quality, but when I do, I hope to wear it more than once and that it has some versatility to it.
I also don’t mind doing a bit of revamping, not just on my vintage finds but anything in my closet that’s been in there for a while and I’ve sort of lost interest in. I’m not an expert seamstress by any means (I really wish I was!) but I am good at sewing on, glueing on, or pinning on. I buy loads of these large gold safety pins to have around just in case. They can add a rock and roll edge to many things, i.e. old t-shirts, leather jackets, chiffon blouses, and cashmere sweaters, just to name a few. You can sew them on, like I did with this top, or pin them on, which is even easier!
Are you big on revamping? If so, what was your latest project?
