How to Wear Vinatge, Pt. 2 - Formal
This is a long white skirt that was my sister's in the late 90's. She wore it to a formal Christmas banquet. I rescued it from a plastic bin in my parent's storage unit a few weeks ago. I am wearing a (not-too-poofy) crinoline under it.
Paired with one of my favorite thrifted pieces: a black velvet wrap around top with lace on the neckline and sleeves. From the 1980's (ish), it has such a romantic, Victorian, Spanish feel to it.
And a faux fur muff I thrifted as well.
Add some nice shoes or boots, a loose, romantic, Gibson Girl hair do like mine in the photo, and "walla"! You have a very neat looking, striking formal look.
I am thinking about listing this on my Etsy; although the "formal" season is pretty much over with (except for proms.) Everything would be listed except the top - definately keeping that piece!
See what fun vintage is?
Have a great day and come back soon!
