Guinea a Shabby Apple Minute



I love vintage fashion. But sometimes, it's not so easy to find vintage items that fits well and are in good condition.

Enters Shabby Apple, a site dedicated to reviving vintage style.

They have skirts, dresses, swimwear, shoe and accessories made to satisfy any vintage fashion lover.

Check out these two pieces, the cute Catalina Swim suit and the glamorous First Snow Skirt.

As you may know, I really like pieces that I can easily transform.

Enter the Guinea a Minute dress.

The best thing about this dress is that I can easily change the way it looks by adding other pieces of clothing.

You can also modify the bottom by adding another skirt.

Vintage Body Suit :: How to Style

I love the combination of almost inappropriate hemline and leggings.

The best season to wear this is from Fall to Winter.

I have waited forever to wear this vintage body suit ever since I styled it for the Thrift Chic Challenge I participated in.

The almost swimsuit level body suit looks great down the runway, but down the freeway, it will no fly.

That is solved simply by layering leggings underneath.

Finished with a jacket and scarf and purse. It is quite possibly the perfect fall outfit.

One great way to wear a lot of different pattern is to keep everything in the same color pallet.

It keeps everything muted, even though I am layering python over floral of paisley.

This faux python jacket is my favourite purchase for this season. Not your typical fall color, but the texture and shape adds some luxury to any outfit.

Shop the look

I got the body suit from my local Value Village. Often that's where you can find the most amazing one of a kind pieces. Give it a try. While you are at it, maybe you can also find a fur collar?

Stay tuned for more Fall looks.

Vintage Chanel Brooch - How to Style

Yesterday was Coco Chanel's Birthday. Born Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971), she is the founder of the French luxury brand Chanel.

The legendary lady has made the CC logo an icon. Coveted by people all over the world.

I am so excited when I received my very own vintage Chanel brooch.

It is such a statement making piece of jewelry, I had to think of different ways to maximize the potential.

I can't help but try it as a head piece. A fabulous, fabulous head piece.

The pin makes it super easy to attach to any other kind of chain, much like this already fun belt.

Finally, it also makes a smashing hair pin.

Much like the vintage clip on earrings post, a little creativity goes a long way.

Inspired eternally by this fashion icon, I strive to always push the style envelope.
