Well, now that you know WHY I'm blogging, let's get on with this post! One of my favorite ways to get inspiration for outfits is to try a "look". Again and again I find myself trying the "classic" look. For my latest birthday party, I wore a sophisticated 1960's look. With a black sheath dress, colorful blazer, pearl necklace and heeled oxfords, I was going for an Audrey Hepburn or Jackie Kennedy style.
Sheath dresses and blazers were popular with classy ladies in the 60's, and bright colors were typical of the era. My blazer is from a thrift store that sells unique and vintage items, while the dress was on sale at Kohl's. The fun thing about a black dress is that it can be worn many different ways for various occasions.
I wouldn't say that heeled oxfords are quintessentially 60's, but in my opinion, they are full of vintage charm. For a long time I wanted lace-up heeled oxfords, and after months of waiting I found my pair in a thrift store. They are ever so slightly large, but otherwise wonderful. So, you see, second-hand shopping is usually the way to go!
This pearl necklace was a gift from friends. With that, I leave you until the next post. Meanwhile, experiment with classy 60's style!
