Mixing Vintage with Modern

I am beginning to embrace the vintage side. I was never really interested in vintage until a few years ago. But I am happy to say I am now completely sold on it. I have featured a couple of vintage posts this year and they were well received, so I know a lot of my readers have the same feelings towards vintage.

What I like most about vintage is the fact that I can step out looking great and be 100% sure that the likelihood of me running into anyone wearing anything I have on is almost impossible. With vintage, the chances of that happening are really slim. I also love mixing vintage with modern pieces. I think it is a super stylish trend that will always be in vogue, and I think it it is the best way to go if you are into vintage pieces.

I recently came across Rokit – A Women’s Vintage Clothing Online Store, and I immediately fell in love with the stunning pieces. It is a vintage wonderland with various beautiful collections of vintage clothing and accessories. Rokit has been Keepin’ It Vintage since 1986 and they are still slaying!

So many pieces and accessories caught my eye on the website, there are so many options that I wish I a few favourites of mine –

80s Bold Patterned Blouse

This blouse would been an amazing summer addition. It would look so stylish with rolled up sleeves and dark sunglasses. It would also look great paired with shorts, a cami top and a hat.

I love how bright it is. It is a beautiful blouse and it currently retails at £25 only.

1980s Tropical Print Dress

This bold and beautiful Tropical Print Mini Dress is another beauty I currently have my eye on. The lightweight cotton fabric and winged sleeves are great summer clothing features to have. This would look lovely paired with ankle boots and socks while it is still cool, and sandals when it gets warmer.

It currently retails at £35 only.

80’s Black Trench Coat

I am in need of a trench coat for spring, and this piece ticks all the right boxes. It is black, comes in a simple design and medium weight. I love the flowing fall and waist belt. The welt pockets and notched collar are also right up my alley!

It currently retails at £70.

Christian Dior Vintage Crystal Earrings

I have slowly fallen in love with shopping vintage, and I must say, I am loving it. Digging out stylish rare gems is now my new best thing, and I really enjoy styling them as well.

I recently came across an online store – Rock my Vintage, which has quickly became my online spot for all things vintage. Rock my Vintage stocks original and inspired vintage dresses and accessories, at amazing prices, so it is worth having a look at this website if you are into vintage pieces and accessories.

I was on the hunt for some stunning vintage jewellery as a twinkling treat for myself (Yes I like to get myself presents regularly), so I went browsing on the website. There were so many options with a varied price range, so it took me some time to make up my mind, but I finally settled on this gorgeous Christian Dior Crystal Vintage Earrings, and I am glad I did.

 

 

I am head over heels in love with the sparkly earrings. I have never had a Christian Dior jewellery before, so it feels good to rock these super sparkly beauties.

These 1980s diamante clip on earrings by Christian Dior feature a curved crossover design with a double row of crystals for maximum shine. All of the original crystals are intact and are in a gold setting. The hinge fastening is marked with ‘Chr. Dior Germany’ and these earrings measure 2cm. Condition – Excellent.

 

 

I am saving the earrings for special occasions only, when I need to ooze some 80s glamour. But if I was to style the earrings for a regular day, I would probably match it with a nice stylish vintage inspired dress like the beauty below.

 

 

This 1940s vintage inspired Faye Floral Midi Shirt Dress from Sugarhill Boutique, would look amazing this spring, styled with the vintage Christian Dior Crystal Earrings and a black pair of sandals.

I love shirt dresses; they are very comfortable, easy to style and flatter most shapes. What is there not to like?

What do you think of both items? Are you a vintage fan?
