A Vintage Adventure: Sequins at Dawn

Apr 15, 2016 | Fashion

Musings: “I love Vintage dresses.. Yes I do..I went through a hard-core Vintage phase…. where my entire closet looked like I stepped out of a 1920’s movie.. or at the “really major moments”… from a 1960’s circus.. LOL..

…That phase has long passed and now I have learnt to wear my vintage pieces fused harmoniously with the present day.. that way.. it reads more as “unique” as opposed to looking like a costume”..

Today:This morning, I pulled out a sequinned Vintage dress from my wardrobe and yearned to wear it.. It has gold detailing as well as a long slit in the front.. Tricky for daytime?? Maybe.. Here’s how I made it work..

a. Minimal Make-up: I kept my make-up look simple.. Smoky eyes and hardly any lip colour..

b. Blazer: For the most part..I would have a slouchy blazer over it.. It gave it that extra laid-back look..

c. Very “meh” Shoes: I kept my shoe game absolutely neutral.. I went for the most obscure black pumps in my wardrobe.. They were the perfect fit for the dress..


…lest I FORGET!! We have even more amazing Vintage pieces at Zinkata!! Shop for fabulous dresses now!!



See you in store soonest!!!
