Layer Your Way to a Different Era

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today’s outfit is a result of me looking at my wardrobe and saying, “Meh.”

I wanted to wear a very nice-fitting grey dress I thrifted a while back, but it’s quite dull on its own, and I was in the mood for something a bit more glamorous. Just tossing on a sweater and leggings wasn’t going to cut it.

Luckily, I have plenty of other thrifted layers to choose from.

This is a combination that makes me think of the 20’s, but perhaps that’s just me. Layering the grey dress over a vintage black maxi gives the illusion of a dropped waist, and the art deco print from the pajama jacket I’m wearing could have hopped right out of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries!

Yep. I'm wearing my PJs in public.

That lovely bauble around my neck came from the same nice gent who gifted me a most impressive vintage haul he had before he moved to his new house. None of the items (save the shoes) in this outfit cost more than $1.

I'm ready for my gimlet, please.

So, the next time you get a case of the wardrobe “Mehs”, why not try experimenting with a bit of atypical layering?

Cheers!
