Isn’t it fascinating when we talk about retro-style? Well, it is for me. I am not old here on earth but I have been around for quite a while to boldly talk about retro-style or vintage styling as some of you may refer it to.
Wait a minute, where you waiting for a definition of retro-style? Not at all, that can’t happen here but of course you know that’s why we have Google to help with that.
Styling is and should be fun. It shouldn’t be all about the how-to’s and the how-nots hence, the reason I’m sharing with you today how I transform(ed) a retro-style to look modern
How did I come about this outfit? Remember in one of my previous post Cheap but Elegant, I shared with you a
brief story of a few stuffs I acquired during my stay in Ghana. Do you remember now? Yeah, this dress right here was one of the vintage pieces I picked that day and see how I look like a million bucks in it (lol).
When I first saw this dress beckoning on me as I usually say, I almost ignored. Why? Because it was a sleeveless, and I felt I wouldn’t rock it with so much confidence. I feared my
fat thick arms would ruin the fun but then the design ministered greatly to my heart that I had to overlook my insecurities and create a means of bringing out the best in us ?. That led me to wearing a bodysuit underneath it; viola, here we are…
This River Island bodysuit has its sexy side although the dress is layered over it thereby covering its real beauty, but it came in handy for me as I needed just the sleeves to achieve the look I was gunning for.
Indeed I’m forced to confess right now… I stole this scarf from my younger sister’s wardrobe thinking she stole it from my mum but I guess I was wrong about that. It’s actually hers. hahaha. Summer has just begun and so it is the right time to play as much as you can with your style, throw on some scarves/accessories to your look for added elegance and uniqueness
What I’m I arriving at in today’s post?
- You don’t need to spend a million bucks to look it.
- You can make do with things around you or re-use your favorite pieces to come up with a delectable style.
- If at all you have your insecurities like I do, there are ways to go about covering them up in a stylish manner.
- Retro-style can always look contemporary, if you master the art of combination and re-styling except you intentionally want to keep it retro.
- Take advantage of a vintage clothing, if you happen to find any. I never get bored with them
Thanks for stopping by always.
