Lady Like Vintage





Dress: Vintage; Shoes: Leifsdottir; Sunglasses: Amazon; Earrings: Kate Spade; Bracelet: David Yurman; Ring: David Yurman

Infusing vintage pieces into Ginger Side of Life has been one of my favorite aspects of this blog. I love finding older pieces in vintage shops and giving them new life by mixing them with modern pieces I have just purchased. This particular dress was lent to me by my good friend Karolina. According to Karolina, this is her good luck dress. She has worn it on interviews, first dates and on days with important meetings and it has always served her well. So, I felt like I had to get in on this vintage magic and the dress did not disappoint! I felt like an actual model that day when a few people in the house behind me were being so encouraging and complimentary! Vintage magic :)

  1. That vintage dress is so pretty and lady-like. The shoes, studs and sunglasses you chose for it are perfect, Chelsea. Pleasure seeing you co-host as well.

    • Right, and I got them on sale~ I cannot believe I spent so much time hemming and hawing about whether or not to purchase them!

  2. Such a beautiful dress! Love it!
    And buns suit you – thanks for the mini tutorial – you make it look so easy to do!

    • Hi Angele,

      Thank you! Vintage pieces are so fun and I was definitely lucky my friend trusted me enough to borrow her lucky dress! Also, let me know if you try the bun donut! Would love to see a picture.
