I recently discovered this great street snaps blog, based in New York and San Fran, and that means tons of people decked out in vintage. And going through it, I found so many great examples on how to wear certain vintage pieces, here are some of my favourites:
Vintage blouses have great versatility! Tuck it into some shorts or pants, or layer it with a cardi, to contrast the blouse or the collar. In Singapore, I love wearing vintage blouses with some denim shorts and its great for weekends.
I love these 2 looks, so so simple and classic. Their shoes just complete their simple looks. Pair vintage shoes with vintage dresses and a simple blouse and pants and it looks great!
And of course the vintage dress! It’s the simplest statement piece, just accessorise with a belt, a great bag, or with a denim jacket as pictured. Vintage dresses can give you a great overall look and stand out from the crowd.
We have launched a small shoe collection with 4 pairs of delectable vintage shoes!
1. Stormy Day Shoes: Labelled RED CROSS SHOES. Not sure where its made.
2. Yummy Brown Oxfords: Labelled connie. Made in Brazil.
3. Coffee Heeled Oxfords: Labelled NORSTROM. Made in Italy.
4. Striped Down Shoes: Labelled Pappagallo. Made in Spain.
I was never a big fan of Vans shoes till I set eyes on these pair of shoes, the Camryn.
I own 2 pairs of this, one in Tan and one in Black/Gum. They are the perfect sneaker for pairing with that vintage dress or any floral dress for that matter.
I bought a pair in US, and a was delighted to find it in Singapore too, so I bought it in another colour. It might still be at the shops. Vans has recently opened quite a few full fledged Vans shops here in Singapore and they were very helpful in helping me get my size. You can find Vans branches in Singapore at Orchard Central in Somerset or at Marina Square!
Collection 2 is finally out, I really hope something catches your eye!
