Vintage Obsession

Do you ever notice something that is always at the back of your closet? You’re so used to seeing it there, that you don’t even consider it as a piece of clothing anymore, its has become something more like… furniture or a decor piece in your wardrobe. As silly as this sounds, you cannot lie to me, I know you can relate.

In my case, that piece is this beautiful and colorful pleated skirt. How could I forget about its existence? I’m not really sure, all I know is that I woke up one morning and I just knew that I would wear it that day. To be completely honest with you, I had never worn it in my life. It actually has been in my house forever, apparently one of my aunts bought it when she was my age, so I guess that it’s okay to call the skirt “vintage”.

I decided to pair it with a plain black shirt and white Stan Smith’s, for accessories I picked the most gorgeous minimalistic necklace that I literally just got from Outcast Jewels, it’s made from antique gold and I have been wearing it non-stop.

I am entirely minimalistic when it comes to jewelry and accessories, don’t get me wrong, I adore layering pieces and stacking up necklaces until my arm is no longer visible (hello, middle school me), but most of the time I keep it very simple, it’s almost something unconscious.

So, now its your turn to admit that you have pieces in your closet that you haven’t worn in ages… it’s time to bring them back! And in case that you don’t like it anymore you should definitely consider donating everything that you do not use anymore, it’s up to you to get the most out of your clothes and why not help other people along the way? It’s a win-win situation.

Make sure to let me know what is the oldest piece in your closet and how did you get it, I love vintage shops and imagining the story behind every hand me down.

Ps. I would love to know what you enjoy to see on the blog, if you have any requests, please make sure to leave a comment below or send me a tweet.

    I can definitely relate! I have so many pieces that I never wear but I don’t want to get rid of them either. I have a skirt as well but it is black with these white polka dots. I got it from my mother but never wore it. I don’t even know why, maybe because I don’t know how to wear it. Anyways, I love how you paired this skirt and I think it looks great on you 🙂

      Thank you Leta! Given that it has a pattern you should pair it with a solid color shirt or something like that, keep it simple and it will work! xx

    You look so gorgeous here! I love how that vintage skirt has different shades of pink in it, and I completely know what you mean about having clothing items that have been there so long they feel like they’re almost part of the furniture. For me, when I start to find a lot of pieces like that I know it’s time to do a little wardrobe refresh.

      Yeah definitely! I really don’t have many forgotten pieces in my wardrobe, but I’m glad that I’m making this skirt work because I really like it 🙂 xx

    Your pleated skirt is totally so cute. Yeah, I guess you could call it vintage…Haha
    I had a few pieces in my closet that were definitely like furniture pieces but since I’m moving in the next few weeks, I have been trying to clean up a bit and so some of these pieces I’ve had them for ever so they’re all in a big black garbage bag ready for the donation center.

      I read somewhere that you could call “Vintage” any item that is around 20 years + old, so this skirt definitely is. Thank you so much for reading 🙂

    I am ALL about using old pieces in my wardrobe to create a fresh, modern ensemble. It was actually the foundation of my little own style blog, with me featuring pieces all the way from childhood to my momma’s 80s/90s wardrobe. I am LOVING your take on the vintage look, Ana, and the skirt is way too adorable! x

    I love looking through my closet & finding something I forgot about. I will have to do a thorough search this weekend! I really like how you paired with feminine skirt with the cool, sporty sneakers. :]

    Hahahha I can sooooo relate to this post! Too many items in my closet I don’t wear often enough or haven’t worn yet, but you’re right, I totally should. This skirt is really gorgeous Ana, and love the way you combined it ! A stunning look from head to toe.
