This dress I got from a real lady. She was the boss at collective farm and now she’s 90 years old. Each time she goes to town to take care things, she takes time to dress up and looks very stylish like a high class lady.

One day I was treasure hunting again at think2.eu site and found this really cute bag. I liked the shape so much, great evening bag, in case you want to leave your phone home ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I don’t know, if it’s real leather or not, but smells like great vintage piece has to ๐Ÿฅฐ

The shoes are the same as in my last post, brand named DeeZee ๐Ÿ™‚

And sunglasses – Ana Hickmann (a Brazilian model’s brand)

Here’s another super find from think2.eu – japanese style dress with silky feel. I don’t know if it’s silk or not, the material description was marked “unknown”. In used excellent condition ๐Ÿ™‚. Also the snake-bracelet is from think2.eu. Horsebit motive belt from Massimo Dutt and bag Saint Laurent.

Half summer already passed and I was still looking for the perfect shoes.. suddenly I stepped in into a shoe-shop I had never visited and returned with three pairs of excellent looking shoes. These were very cheap, so I will test, if cheap = poor quality or not.. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜›

Photos of more vintage dresses will come soon ๐Ÿ˜

I can’t imagine, how much times this lovely dress has seen, but probably it’s pretty much pre-loved by someone. I actually just got the dress today, from Humana Vintage rags. This beauty had no label and I think it’s handwork and compared with today’s fast fashion or a little bit slower fashion items, it seems well thought out design and made very carefully and with great love. The buttons hung on just one more thread and I had to sew them over. Vintage leather bag + vintage belt are both from Etsy. And leather sneakers, my absolutely favorite model, are from Zara.

Finally, the sun is caressed the land warmly and the frogs are croaking. Here very rare old (don’t remember exactly, how old..) frog brooch, originates from Etsy. Frogs are a symbol of change and transformation and for me this is a really lovely talisman.

I’m gone totally nuts for vintage lately. It’s just, I have had so good experiences with my latest purchases of these sophisticated pearls. It seems the quality of these vintage items is much better, these are made with love and made to last, made with a well-thought-out design.

The trench coat is Laurenz Trupal, probably 60’s or 80’s, but it’s brand new, it seems, it’s never used. Fabulous pattern and design, very comfy to wear. I just love it so much โค๏ธ.

The scarf ring is from Etsy and it’s actually waiting for a vintage Hermes scarf, but this time I wear a “golf club” theme silk scarf (not so visible here), which is also very unique and really beautiful.

๐Ÿ˜‘ I really feel, that I have already reached the limit and this kind of neutral clothing is too much for me. Nothing is wrong, my capsule wardrobe works well – I have good-quality basics and the content is easy to combine – ready to go out of the door within two minutes whatever it’s coming down from the sky. Just.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ in my opinion.. this kind of style has a bit lack of emotions.. My closet was screaming for something, which has some kind of attitude.. So I decided to spice it up with vintage. And actually now, when I’m like “tabula rasa”, it’s a good starting position for adding some kick. Generally I intend to follow the rules of my 2022 clothing plan. Maybe I only break rule number five..

But here – I think I got inspired from lovely Audrey Coyne โค๏ธ – and dived into the boundless world of Etsy. So here are the treasures, I found and purchased this time.

80s Boston Florence craftsman Italian leather bag – in excellent condition – not used at all. I have dreamed of this kind briefcase style bag since long time. For example, I really like Proenza Schoulder. But the one I got, has all the history and in my eyes even more temper ๐Ÿ™‚.

And the belt.. it’s also old/vintage, but seems totally unused, like brand new and together with it there was a lovely heart message-label from the seller.

With those two Etsy purchases I have experienced a very good and personal attitude. My best greetings and many thanks to the sellers! From Estland ๐Ÿ™‚โค๏ธ

I already have some vintage Hermes scarves on my wishlist, but this one is from Humana vintage (think2.eu), no specific brand, but the print is really beautiful and it’s in excellent condition.

Kimono cut wool-coat is from Mango, handmade.

Boots from Massimo Dutti.

Sunglasses – Zara, retro.

Style upgrade..

It really seems I’m moving backwards, back to simple basics, plain cuts and blank colors. Everyone would like to dress to impress, wear something different, than other plain-Jane’s do ๐Ÿ™„. There must be some good reason, why these clean cuts and neutral colors look better and also more expensive, than bright colored items, designed with great efforts. So I have already collected some clothes for myself, which may fall into this plain (boring๐Ÿ™„) upgraded category and I’ll try to solve the mystery.. It really looks like DRESSING UP IS A LIFETIME LESSON TO LEARN ๐Ÿ™‚

Here I wear “Different Shades of Black”๐Ÿ™‚ look. Actually, the only clothing piece, which is fully black, is the top – irreplaceable old wardrobe’s basic from Monton (I have 3pcs of these ๐Ÿ™‚), Estonian design, but this brand died out last year, unfortunately. The trousers are from Mango, bought a couple of months ago – I tried so many, but these were somehow so different and much more higher class feeling. The blazer is recently bought from Massimo Dutti’s sale.

๐Ÿ’ก Someone, has said – “you must be remembered for who you are, not for what you wore”. Maybe this is the main reason, why the look should be simple and neutral.. have to shine from the inside ๐Ÿ™‚

Here Gucci meets Estonian design again ๐Ÿ™‚ – Mosaic coat, which’s brand was killed by COVID-19 as well ๐Ÿ˜”.

A little style change plan for 2022

I have recently started to follow Anna Bey’s videos from YouTube and I’m so strongly influenced of her and as a result I have got rid of almost everything I had in my closet. Also from my scenic print and animal print dresses ๐Ÿ˜ฅ, which were kind of my signature style. But first, I didn’t have a good ironing machine and secondly I had noticed, it’s quite hard to style, when everything is so patterned. I also love Kate Hutchins, Mariana Pineda and Audrey Coyney, so some style hacks might be from them too. But here are the main tips:

1.Keep it simple.

2.Wear only neutral colors, which can be found from the nature and only the color-palette, which suits for you.

3.Try to avoid black and wear navy blue instead.

4.Buy less, but only mid-range priced (or expensive ๐Ÿ˜ƒ) items and try to find expensive looking items from Zara and other fast-fashion stores. Some colors and some materials look more expensive, than the others.

5.Try to avoid cheap patterns and also (unless you are not very experienced) animal prints ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ and especially cartoon prints.

6.Try to wear the same tone from head to toe. It looks very chic ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Here I have new double-breasted wool coat from Mango, merino wool sweater and wool mix hat from Ivo Nikkolo (Estonian design), Massimo Dutti boots and YSL bag ๐Ÿ™‚

What makes a woman smile..

..a new YSL handbag of course.. which is birthday present from my darling ๐Ÿ˜˜, ordered from Luisaviaroma. Of course it was me, who chose the bag ๐Ÿ™‚ – the model is Saint Laurent Medium Sunset Leather Sachtel Bag ๐Ÿ™‚. I really love the shape and simple design of Saint Laurent bags, but I was a bit afraid of this big YSL logo and golden chain-strap, but these are not shiny and don’t scream at all. So I’m really happy with this bag and already dream of white and beige one too ๐Ÿค. This knitted zebra dress is from Vila (I have it in light beige tone too). The boots are from Massimo Dutti and this was the birthday present from me to me. No problem to get one year older to get presents like these.. ๐Ÿ˜›
