vintage meets modern.

When I first started my boutique and blog I developed it on my strong sense of vintage meets modern style. I always loved wearing pieces that were unique but most of all I loved the demure cuts and silhouettes from an earlier time. However, I encountered a problem quite quickly into my love affair with vintage pieces. Similar to most issues I come across, my size was hard to come by. I would find stunning vintage pieces but nothing ever in my size, hence my boutique which enabled me to find a good home for these gorgeous pieces. I've considered altering pieces to fit, but unfortunately I don't have the time nor the money to have this done on the high frequency I find pieces.

So, when I found this gorgeous skirt on my vintage scout day in Melbourne I knew it was meant to be. It had a unique print, perfect cut and style, and most importantly it was in my size. I paired this skirt with black to draw the attention back to the print. The only issue with this skirt is, it's a bit long for my short stature so I can only get away with wearing it with heels.

  2. That skirt is beautiful on you! I think the midi length is so flattering, but I know what you mean when I wear longer skirts I always want to pair it with heels too.
