Lately we hear the word "vintage" thrown around quite often. The truth is, most of the pieces we think are these luxurious, vintage pieces are actually just second-hand garments...and there's nothing wrong with that!
Just because that thrift store T-shirt you're wearing isn't actually from the 60's doesn't mean that it's any less trendy.
I was lucky enough to stumble upon this amazing U.S. Army jacket at a flea market this passed winter. I never fear the idea of second hand items, these are the pieces that typically carry the most character and are also the best bases for DIY projects!
To balance out the simplicity of the jacket I paired it with a basic patterned dress and a trendy pair of Shellys London lace up heels to add some drama to the look. When looking for patterns, I tend to lean towards stripes; they are super trendy this season and give you an overall cleaner look. Unlike florals or other prints, stripes will create a more modern and contemporary feel.
Don't be scared of well-loved garments-They create some of the best looks!
