Vintage Houndstooth


If there is anything I wish I could find more of it's dramatic fit and flare dresses. It is such a reminiscent look from the 1950's that you rarely see in stores today. I've always loved vintage fashion, but as most people I am worried about it looking like a costume.  I love hints at a certain style or time period mixed in with modern pieces for a more seamless look. This particular dress/jacket combo is from Shein and it is the bow neck tie houndstooth two piece dress, the dress and jacket are separate pieces but they are sold together, along with the belt (for an amazing price!)  The dress is made out of this really heavy wool blend / knit material so it is fairly heavy and warm. The flared part of the dress does flare out on its own but I wanted it to be a bit more dramatic.  I decided to wore a petticoat underneath, I recently bought a petticoat of amazon after doing some research on good affordable petticoats. This was my first time buying and wearing one so I wanted to try and find something at a more reasonable price to see how I liked it first. I bought one off amazon (link here) and I am so impressed! It really made a difference when it came to the lift and shape of the dress and it is definitely something I will be incorporating into my wardrobe (Might get another colour!). Since the dress makes such an impact I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple so I wore these black patent kitten heels (to keep in line with the 1950's style) and added a simple black beret from coach to complete the look. Let me know what you guys think of this vintage style look, I for one am obsessed with this dress and I already want to wear it again !  This coming up year I really want to incorporate more vintage style pieces like this one into my wardrobe, so if you know of any websites you think I should check out let me know in the comments below or you can always reach me on Instagram.
