For the love of Vintage


Hey everyone, how did your week go? Hope it ended well?

If you don’t like vintage clothings please indicate by raise of hand. Hahaha, just kidding. But come on, who doesn’t love vintage? Well I do, and I’ve acquired quite a few, would be dropping them little by little on this platform but for today it’s all about my beautiful vintage gown designed by the talented Anne Elisabeth Jane Claiborne.



This Liz Claiborne beaded short sleeve long black dress is probably a late 80’s dress but I love her attention to details as you can see the seed beads and tabular beads of every colour on the sleeves.





This classic dress is definitely a show stopper, elegant with its simplicity.

I was fortunate to purchase this dress close to mint condition from @glamloungeboutiqueimage




In this post, I paired the dress with one of my fav shoes as you might have noticed in previous posts. This pair of shoes added more colour to the outfit which I totally love.

One good thing about vintage is that you only find few people wearing exact same piece as you do, that is if you ever find though. So for the time being, I’m going to enjoy this buy, rock my vintage gown to a party, classy function or a date with that someone special. Hehehe. Oh, I could also wear it to a wedding. What do you guys think? Let’s chat below



Remember to be your best at all times!!!
