Back to School Vintage Basics!

The fall semester has just kicked off and I'm pysched to be heading back to campus!  Here are some vintage staples that can enhance your collegiate wardrobe...

1.  Vintage Skirts...
Paired with your favorite blouse, or button-up and topped with a cardigan or jacket... you can't go wrong.  Add flats or pumps to complete the look!

I found this awesome 1940s pencil skirt on Etsy and just had to have it!

2. Vintage Pantsuit or Wiggle dress...
Because they are a one piece outfit, they are great for showing off accessories.. and really hot!

3. Bakelite Bangles.
In rich vibrant colors, you can stack these up with practically anything.  Fabulous with a white tee and jeans!

4. Vintage Shoes!
I must admit I am a shoe-holic.  I wish I had more feet.... Be careful buying vintage shoes online, they ran smaller and a lot more narrow for some reason.  There's nothing better than pumps and blue jeans!

5.  Vintage Beaded Necklaces...
without being to presumptuous, they accent any fall outfit perfectly!
