DIET COKE & BUBBLEGUM



Romwe B&W two tone blouse/spiked cuff, H&M floral skinny trousers, vintage B&W stripe clutch, DIY polka dot headband, street vendor cateye sunnies, Qupid neon turquoise wedges, Target socks, DIY spiked wrap cuff, vintage bangles, eBay evil eye ring and random rings

Holy shizz it's Spring and the weather has been AH-MAZING! Like there's fucking flowers everywhere, that I know was not there last week. Either my mind's playing tricks on me or old age...one of the two. But it's beautiful out and I'm shocked cause it's usually hot as hell in Texas around this time! Go Texas...

So I finally got my dream blouse in from Romwe and the color/fit is extremely mod. Being that the 50s/60s are my first love I decided to go for a more modernize girl next door look. I think Peg Bundy hair, floral petal pushers, pops of colors, cat eye sunnies, polka dots/stripes and neon wedges did the trick.
Now if I had Diet Coke in a glass bottle you probably would have thought you went back in time (haha not) and I definitely would have a switchblade in my clutch, like badass Wanda Woodward from Cry Baby, lol! 
Also wearing newer items keep you from looking like you're sporting a costume, even though vintage is my life, I loathe girls who go too far and let the clothes wear them. You're supposed to be influenced/inspired by the era not become it! Vomit, rolling my eyes so hard, looks like I'm having a seizure over here, lol! 
You know what I'm talking about? If you feel you look too much like (enter your favorite 50s/60s icon here) take a few vintage pieces off and and add newer accessories or vice versa. I promise this will freshen up your look for sure...bring yo shit into 2012!

Before I go I just wanted to say THAAANK YOOOOOOU to all my lovely readers! I feel like I haven't said that in awhile. Shit has been beyond overwhelmingly CRAZY and I'm just sooooo thankful you guys are on my side supporting me! Sometimes a positive comment from you guys can keep me from going bat shit crazy...ugh I love that!

kiss kiss,
Virgin

Bluefemme said...

Are you referring to me??? hehe. As soon as I read your post I immediately thought that. Yeah I agree with you 100% about being inspired by the era rather than wearing the costume! That's why I try to mix my 60s dresses with modern shoes and accessories. But sometimes I do end up looking like I am wearing a 60s costume!
By the way your outfit looks crazy, cool, and fun with a modern twist!

Anonymous said...

No Ms. Vintage! I can't...it's just too much for my eyes! Take something off. I'm not trying to be mean...but there's too much damn stuff going on here. This is a total fail to me. Yeah...you might curse me out with a reply but I'm being honest.

VintageVirgin said...

to the anon i'm not going to curse, just check you. i'm wearing 3 items...shirt, pants and wedges! and probably the least amount of jewelry i've worn in a long time. what would you like me to take off? enlighten me and come off anon, if you do reply so we can see what you look like and judge you!

Magnet said...

I kind of stick by the same mentality you've described here. I have vintage influences but I always wear something more 'modern' along with a vintage or inspired piece of clothing. I do think some people who look completely like a certain decade look awesome though. Dita Von Teese for example, she is amazing and completely 'vintage'. Even her face! haha.

Olga said...

I love you.

All dude you look all bought out. Meaning you lost your swag and you are now just wearing all these new bought shit. Honestly I love the old humble, 100% vintage kind girl you were. You were humble and unique! Now you are like every other blogger who get free shit and put it all in one outfit!

Bianca said...

So i've been going through dozens and dozens of pages on your blog - everything you wear is absolutely amazing. You have taste to die for - I am extremely jealous....but inspired! Just wondering, how do you get your hair wavy like in these photos? I've always struggled with trying to get that kind of wave happening! Love from Australia xo
