Monday Chic: Vintage Revisited

2012.12.2VintageRevisitedGetting dressed yesterday morning was a throwback to vintage classics.  There was a slight chill in the air which welcomed wool separates.  I snagged the skirt at a thrift store several years ago and have always wavered back and forth on wearing it as I felt the length was awkward and the design seemed outdated.  It’s a good thing I have a habit for squirreling away good pieces in my closet as midi-skirts made a comeback last year and large chevron never seems to go out of style.  The jacket is my Kenneth Cole from this post but I had yet to do a proper post on it – the military details plus ankle boots are the perfect additions to making vintage seem modern.
