I don’t know if it happens to you guys as well but I honestly think that every piece of clothing I’ve ever wanted (sans heels) I have found in a vintage store, and usually only a few days after I’ve realised I wanted to find it. I don’t know how it works but it honestly creeps me out sometimes. Sheer black button shirt? Check. Sheer pleated maxi skirt? Check. Khaki green army jacket? Check. Peach Gloves with a matching tulle headband? Completely unnecessary but, I found this vintage leopard print belt when I was opshopping a few days ago and I couldn’t believe how much it resembled a mix between the leopard print from Camilla and Marc and Alexander Wang. Oddly enough, when I got it home I realised it was made from dyed steer hide and not only looks, but feels exactly like my leopard print pumps by Alexander Wang too!? It’s weird when you find things you’ve wanted for so long and even weirder when you see the same trends in different eras collide but with different price tags. Vintage leopard belt – $8.00. Alexander Wang leopard heels – Cringe worthy. I suppose that’s just one of the many reasons why I love vintage so much… Now, off to find a way to style these babies! PS.
