Breathe Life Into Something Old

October 31st, 2011

Sometimes you find a vintage item that you fall in love with, even if it isn’t totally your size. I found these vintage YSL sateen shorts a while back but the fit was a little off in places. The length was 3 inches above my knee which not a flattering length on anyone and the waist was too loose. I love vintage YSL and I knew that I could take the shorts to my tailor to give them a new life. I had 6 inches cropped off and had them nipped in the waist. I’m really happy with the result.

That’s another thing to keep in mind when you are out shopping for vintage. Wrong fitting clothes will always age you and your look. If you find your favorite vintage piece and it doesn’t fit right, don’t hesitate to take it to your tailor and have it trimmed down to make it fit you better. The beauty of vintage is that the low purchase price allows for extra tailoring costs and the tailored piece will be well worth it! Nothing flatters a body better than custom tailored clothing.

I want to thank everyone for your support on the clothing line. With all your love & support the black & white circle dresses are completely sold out. I’ll be offering it in another color. Have a lovely day!

Wearing: H&M ivory turtle neck sweater, vintage YSL shorts, Charlotte Olympia cat face wedges, Chanel sequin 2.55, Sabre white pearl sunnies, Sue Gragg diamond bracelet

    Nina, you probably hear this often, but I just discovered your blog and am blown away by your amazing style! It is so fierce. Your photos are lovely, too. May I ask what colour nail polish you are wearing? Looks so different – love it!

    What a gorgeous outfit. Somehow this ensemble makes me think about Christmas with white snow and red candy canes – almost like a winter wonderland 😉 I think it’s prob. because of the combination of white and red. My favorite photo is the one with the FOB fingers 😉 Classic!
