How so very true this post is. I just left a thrift store that had a "grab bag sale" for $5.00. In it, I got a dress, three jackets, and a blouse that can all be accessorized for a late 50s-early 60s look. The dress, if styled with a different set of accessories, can be 1940s. Actually, I own very few actual vintage pieces, but manage to dress at least "vintage inspired" everyday. You just have to do your research and pay attention to detail. And of course, keep an eye out for those "classics" that are still prevalent today.

So very true, Myra. Research and attention to detail are important, and classics are called classic for a reason. :-) So fun to hear how well it works for you!


Your Jacket is probably classic late 1970s "Annie Hall" look, I had several just like it at the time. They were paired with a dirndl skirt, usually in the same fabric and a lacy victorian inspired blouse. I adored the look. It certainly borrowed freely from earlier times.
