stenographer or elegant lady at luncheon?

Goodwill thrifted outfit details:

I am slowly trying to incorporate vintage pieces into my wardrobe selection. I have seen so many of them at the Goodwill Outlet and some of it is made of silk, beautifully constructed and holds a well-known brand. Example this vintage Nordstrom silk blouse with beautiful leaves prints. I read somewhere the secret of wearing vintage without looking old is to paired it with modern pieces. Well dont say I didnt try, …somehow I think I look like one of the ladies at Alexis Carrington’s luncheon. But dont one needs a hat and some pearls to be among the rich and famous. Oh well. …So ok, maybe I look like Alexis’s stenographer.

  1. Fabulous mix of modern and vintage, and your shoe collection below is amazing. I am a patient shopper — no pushing, no lurking — just pure enjoyment of the bin digging experience.
