How I Styled a Drop Waist Vintage Dress 3 Unique Ways

November 21st, 2011

Hello and happy Monday, vintage lovers!!

Last night I did one of my all-time favorite things: I played with vintage fashion. I poured myself a glass of champagne (we keep it in the fridge at the store!) and turned the music up loud (currently loving Jimi Hendrix & The Roots) and got to styling the beauty that I’m blessed to work and style other women in all day long.

But last night? It was all about ME!

I was feeling particularly creative thanks to an awesome meeting with new friend and YouTube guru The Stranger Speaks. He moved to NYC a few weeks ago from the United Kingdom because his heart and his soul told me that he needed to be in the city that never sleeps. I’m so in awe of his courage and fearlessness to listen to the intuitive wisdom we are all pleased to have within.

Saturday night we had an inspiring meet & greet over dinner, where our conversation around why creating beauty (both outward & from within!) is so important in our lives reminded me why I’m a blogger and vlogger in the first place: To express my creativity to a greater audience. YOU!

So thanks to The Stranger, I closed shop at A Little Wicked a few minutes early to see what unique ways I could style one of my favorite drop waist dresses in the store. It’s an ’80s piece that’s quite reminiscent of ’20s fashion. I love it when a look “just screams Sammy D,” which I think all of the above do because they represent my desire to stand out in a stylish way. I want to be noticed and I want to be heard – and I want to do it wearing nothing but VINTAGE!

Keep reading after the jump for awesome pics and tips on how to dress up your own vintage dresses — and do it with KILLER CONFIDENCE, to boot!
