Horse of a Different Colour

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 168 0

Top: H&M. Skirt: Betsey Johnson. Handbag: J.Crew Edie. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: ASOS. Watch: Michael Kors. Rings: Kate Spade Bow Ring, Ardene. Bracelets: Stella & Dot, BCBG, J.Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If clothing is more than 10 years old, can it be considered vintage? Β Well, I’m going to say yes, and say that this is a vintage Betsey Johnson skirt that I’ve had for at least a decade. Β Vintage just sounds so much more chic than old.

    It’s always good to mix “vintage” pieces into the new wardrobe for so many reasons 1.) your wallet will be happy about it πŸ™‚ 2.) it gives your look that bohemian/vintage touch.
    That skirt is super cute and a classic piece, even in other 10 years it will be still chic and probably and oldtimer piece hahaha ;-). The pastel colour looks great with that amazing purse πŸ™‚
    Hope you like my latest greenish look as well and have a lovely start in the day πŸ™‚

    Absolutely adore your skirt. Who knew it was 10 years old. It’s such a pretty colour too. My wardrobe from 10 years ago is an embarrassment. Obviously you don’t have the same issue.

      Ha ha ha, well, I think I just got lucky with this piece, because I only have a few select pieces that are that old! My style was not so great in my early 20’s! πŸ™‚ Thanks Jenee!

    I read somewhere that vintage is 25 years and I thought well then I’m old. Love the pleats on your skirt. Oh, that bag…..goes with every damn thing.

    • Jenny
      September 13, 2012

      Ha ha, thanks Inez! I think the definition of vintage is very vague. I’ve heard 10 years, 15 years, 21 years and also 25 years. I’ve also heard that anything before the 1960’s is considered ‘vintage’, and everything post 1960’s is ‘retro’. So confusing!

    I love the print of this top! The outfit is also gorgeous. I don’t see a problem with calling clothing/accessories over 10 years old vintage. I have a Moschino bag from the 90’s and when I told a woman it was vintage she laughed at me because she thought it wasn’t old enough to be vintage.

    • Jenny
      September 14, 2012

      Thank you so very much Katie! It would be so much easier if there was just a hard rule stating what is vintage and what isn’t. πŸ™‚

    I saw that top and thought about getting it myself. I like the quirky sensibility to it and it looks great with this lovely lavender. As far as your “old” πŸ˜‰ skirt is concerned…. You should celebrate that fact. It means your sense of style is timeless (and well constructed haha) You look beautiful!
