I played with a couple of pieces from local vintage store, Granny's Day Out, yesterday- mainly this gorgeous skirt I wore as a dress and these awesome leather feather boots (1st time!!). I guess the great thing about vintage is how fashion is always referring back to the past and trying to make the old new again, then having to adjust to this whole new trend. All of this while vintage just feels okay to wear anytime just because its 'vintage'. Its seems sensibly justifiable even though you look out of place like me in these boots which I'm totally not used to. But they were just so pretty! And you know the great thing about an ultra long skirt like the one above? You can not only wear it as a dress but also a jumpsuit with the help of a rubberband which you tie around each leg- too cute! I got to see how it looked like on a model but never felt it would really look as good on me so I just stuck to its goodness as a dress.
I wanted to give cowboy kind of vibes when I wore these boots so I chose to pair it with my fav Topshop jacket and denims. The bustier is from Nastygal which gave the outfit a little more contrast thanks to the studs I love so much. I love these boots! They're so soft and smell like vintage in a good way…it was hard letting them go. In general, Granny's Day Out has been around for some time now and has been able to up keep with their awesome variety of vintage especially from the 1970s and 80s. They've pretty cool one-off statement pieces and accessories and have been able to stay true to what collecting vintage is all about. Its not only about the clothes but you just wonder whats the whole story behind a certain piece of vintage, who might have worn it and where, when and how. Thats what I love so much about vintage, you're reliving a part of history in you and you get to stand out because its something different from what the rest of the world is wearing.
