This weeks post I went back to basics, keeping my attendance monotone in an elongating all black ensemble. The statement piece transpired via waxed leather-esque sweatpants, accompanied by a not so killer platform heels from Zara. The look was completed with a high neckline and slicked back ponytail, rendering a simplistic lengthened melody.

On a recent trip to Austin, Texas along with some of my fellow fashion bloggers, we made it our mission to visit some of Austin’s many unique vintage stores. The list was endless, however we managed a cover a decent amount of stores and I managed to find some enticing vintage finds to add to my archives.
Here I am rocking a black sheer loosely fit vintage top that I bought from a really cool store called Feathers Boutique. Feathers Boutique provided a modern twist to vintage clothing. It was one of the stores I spent the most time in. I was amused with vintage clothes that have been altered in-house to modern day silhouettes – a fantastic idea. This sheer top is an ideal throw on with denim shorts during breezy summer days and is ideal for effortless bohemian-esque music festival attire.
Here, I decided to pair the blouse with a pair of black pants and suede booties, which were also a vintage find from my trip. I never owned cowboy boots and not sure yet if I can pull them off, however in spirit of ‘Texas’ I managed to find an intermediate- cowboy booties!
Last but not least, I accessorized with a brown vintage leather bag that was one of my lucky random finds from Room Service Vintage, and two golden string necklaces from Frock on Vintage. Our Austin vintage shopping trip was ultimately a success!
