This month we will be featuring fashion posts that are vintage, eclectic, and CHEAP. To accomplish this look all you will need are a pair of colored jeans, a men’s style blazer, and some riding boots. It may seem out of the box, but this would look great on most body types.
We would like to say a special thank you to Dana Roquemore. She offered her services to us for this month’s fashion posts, styling our girls in clothing from her own clothing swap shop, Other People’s Property. She does consignment in a way that would make any piece look interesting and desirable, and yet these pieces are affordable for everyone! You can purchase the items featured in this post from her Other People’s Property online etsy shop. Or you can find pieces similar on your own consignment shop adventure!
Resist the urge to buy a “boyfriend blazer” from a department store. Most consignment shops are full of men’s blazers in all sizes that you can buy for super cheap. The shirt under this blazer is a sleeveless style that is tied at the bottom. New clothing styles in shops like Urban Outfitters show vintage looking tops like this for $30 and higher and are often see through! We recommend looking for this style top at consignments.
Tip: If you choose to tie the shirt at your waist and/or wear a see through vintage fabric, we recommend keeping your belly button and bra covered by wearing a light weight undershirt. SAME LOOK. NO SKIN. Reasonable. ☺
Tip: Skinny jeans and tall riding boots make this outfit work. Don’t feel confined to wearing tops and jackets that are tailored. A large men’s style jacket can actually help you feel more comfortable in a pair of snug jeans. Also, skinnies can often be “painted on” if you buy a size too small. While skinny jeans are meant to be more fitted than other styles, they should not RESTRICT MOVEMENT. Buying for your body type is a whole other subject.
Now her clothing is all from consignment, but her accessories are not! We definitely need to offer alternatives to these accessories which can be pricey!
In place of the exceptional Tory Burch Riding Boot, we have found another super cute riding boot for $48 for you to consider. We also found a "dupe" Michael Kors tortoise shell watch from Target for $14.99 which is similar watch to Michael Kors in the image above for a less expensive price.
