Vintage Inspired | Taking It Back with Beauties On Fire

Incorporating fashion into my blog has been a challenge for me. I love many different style types: vintage, trendy, street, high-fashion, goth, color-coordinated…so many more. Loving so many different styles and not being able to yet afford them has given me a huge complex when writing fashion posts. Luckily for this fashion post, the group Beauties On Fire has selected Vintage as it’s theme for this month which certainly gives me an opportunity to sharpen my styling skills. I’m super excited to write this post and share my vintage inspired outfits.

Vintage Inspired Makeup

Red lips, top-lid black liner, and if you want extra umph, some false lashes. This was the staple of the 50s, notably one of the best fashion and makeup eras.

Vintage Inspired Style

 Seasoned pieces that can be worn with a modern look and still be fashionable. My favorite pieces:

  • Pearls
  • Colorful earrings and cocktail rings
  • Mary Jane shoes
  • Lace
  • Flower patterns
  • Polka Dots

The outfit below is one I made on my Polyvore and it’s absolutely something I’d wear today. How cute is this ModCloth dress??? Of course, I had to add the watch. Watches are my favorite accessory and I truly believe it pulls this outfit together!
