Hello and happy modern vintage Monday, everyone!!!
I don’t even know where to begin with the amazingness that was this past weekend, thanks to so many NYC-based vintage and fearless fashionistas who came to speak with me and be styled in vintage from my closet at Saturday’s Blogger Closet Raid!
HUGE shout outs to Page, Deborah, Monroe, Kimberlee, Anna, Elysia, Nicole, Lesley Kat and so many others who came to pay their respects to SPREADING VINTAGE LOVE!
Not only did I get a chance to sell fabulous vintage finds like this studded black dress, navy/white houndstooth jacket and ’60s gold sequin POWER BELT … but I was able to positively chat with everyone who was there, whether I knew them from Facebook/Twitter/YouTube or were just meeting them for the first time.
I love what I do not because of the fabulous fashion or the chance to post pictures/videos of myself on the Internet. Those are the perks. The real substance of “self-style” is the opportunity to connect with all of you … because we inspire one another. I was so inspired at the event this weekend — thank you again to all!
Now, without further ado … it’s time for some modern vintage stylespiration! My photographer and I headed to Central Park for this shoot, taking advantage of the many scenic lakes, bridges, benches and pathways around this urban refuge that I know and love oh-so-well.
Keep reading after the jump to see how I styled the latest trend to hit mainstream stores: Floral. But in these photos, I’m not wearing just any average piece of floral fashion … I’m wearing vintage floral PALAZZO pants, which I’ll share some background on and of course … how to wear for today!
