Featured: Back in Style [Part 2]



  Monday, May 16, 2011 at 6:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
A couple weeks ago Steven from Back in Style: Vintage & Designer Clothes & Accessories asked if I would like to style some pieces from their store on the blog. Of course I jumped at the chance to try some amazing vintage pieces that I wouldn't normally be able to buy (or have occasion to wear).  They sent me a Lanvin dress, Missoni skirt and Burberry pants! I mixed them with pieces from my own closet to come up with the following looks!
Note: The Burberry pants actually go to the middle of my calves, but that didn't work well on me so I rolled them up. Click to see the full size photos.
(I had major issues with the Lanvin dress photos, so they're kinda bad...sorry :( I am also totally in LOVE with the first photo for the Missoni skirt)
Look 1: The Lanvin Dress
Look 2: The Missoni Skirt
Look 3: The Burberry Pants
Sadly these are on their way back to Back in Style, but that means you guys can buy them if you want!  I was able to keep the Burberry pants, but there are a couple more of them on the site if you like them.

And finally, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't share some amusing bloopers...enjoy! Some of these I actually like, but others are just plain silly. Click the images to make them larger.
These items were sent to be free of charge for the purposes of advertising the store, but after they were photographed they were sent back.  This in no way affected the post.

  7. Nice one, lady! The picture with the skirt is awesome! And I like the dress too! Haha, but those Burberry pants, while nice, look like something you could buy at the gap! Designer stuff is such nonsense sometimes. Still, for free that works out pretty well!
