Vintage-licious


Outfit: Sweater: Sistered, Blouse: Thrifted and revamped, Trousers: TJMaxx,

These trousers go up past my belly button but to be honest, I wish they went even higher.Like around my neck or something, past my eyes even. I don't know what it is about a trouser pant with some serious flare but I always feel like a million bucks in them. Probably because the word trouser makes me think I'm going to high tea with the gov'na.This blouse was pretty terrible when I found it at the thrift store, when I tried it on for Sir Matt he thought I had turned into a 90 year old woman,  but it was only 99 cents and I could handle Sir Matt's smirks, so I went with my vision. I just stripped it of it's nasty stained shoulder pads and added the secretary bow and wa-la, vintage licious. I'm thinking secretary bow tutorial? What do you think ma peeps?

  1. The sweater looks awesome. You should totally do the tutorial if you have the time. I love big wide leg pants. I'm so glad they are "in" for spring because there will be a lot of them in the thrift store.

  5. This is hot! I love the clean look and how it flatters your shape (I was going to say body, but that seemed to sexual).

    Anyway, I love the blouse under the sweater! And you really do tie an AMAZING secretary bow. Please teach us!
