Outfit of the Day

Outfits of the Day May 14th to 18th

The weather was very weird this week, not the warmest and raining and cloudy mostly. The 80 degree weather we had two weeks ago was a tease! I actually had to wear thicker cardigans a couple times this week. We’re also at that weird in between stage where its too warm for my thick, wool vintage swing coats, but not warm enough to wear no nothing outside.

It was a chilly, grey day so I wore 3/4 sleeves and a grey skirt that has been sitting in my closet unworn for a few months.

Today it was chilly again, so I wore a black knit cardigan, but I took it off for the picture because I liked the outfit better without the cardigan. I’m taking advantage of wearing these turbans while its chilly to keep my head warm. Once it gets hot I won’t be able to wear them for a while, sadly. This button up top by Banned Retro is a great staple for vintage outfits because it comes in several different colors as well and you can mix and match with different skirts and pants.

Skirt: Unique Vintage (same skirt but they don’t carry the color I’m wearing, but have a few other colors, and it has POCKETS!)

So I wore green two days in a row! But it’s a different shade of green so that’s ok right? I love the fit of this dress and how the skirt flares out just at the bottom. This dress comes in multiple colors on Amazon and I am definitely going to have to go back and order more colors, especially since its less than $35. Today was accessories day for the Instagram Vintage Fashion Challenge so I had to wear this awesome hair flower clip. I need more flower clips in my life!

Today I was loving my outfit. I’ve worn this dress before, but only by itself. Today I paired it with a cropped cardigan because it’s chilly again. I LOVE the way this outfit looks! I need more Heidi dresses with cropped cardigans! The Red in the Cardigan doesn’t match the red on the dress exactly, but I’m probably the only one that notices lol.

This weekend is supposed to be raining and crappy again, so it will be interesting to see what I put together for outfits. Next week starting Monday though we are supposed to have sunny weather in the 60s and low 70s all week, so I am excited for the outfit possibilities. If you want to check out this weeks prompts for #thevintagefashionchallenge on Instagram my username is sparkleshan, the pictures are different then my outfit pictures in this post.

Outfit of the Day

Outfits of the Day May 7th to 11th

This week was only in the 60s compared to last weeks 70s and 80s sadly. Luckily they have not turned the AC on at work yet, so I am not freezing. The weather did give me the chance to wear some things that I probably won’t wear a lot in the summer. It’s also the second week on the Vintage Fashion Challenge on Instagram that I am participating in and this week was different colors each day.

Ok so I did wear the same cardigan today, as yesterday, but I have been wanting to wear this outfit combination for a while. And it was a little chilly this morning so it was a good excuse to wear it again, besides no one at work saw me wear it yesterday anyway, haha. And I feel like this week is the last time I can wear this grey tartan dress until summer is over, so I went for it!

Today’s color for the vintage fashion challenge was Yellow/Orange. I only have one dress that is yellow with blue designs on it, but I wore that last week. I totally forgot I had this orange top, I bought it before I was wearing vintage full time and I didn’t really consider it vintage at the time, but I think it can be pulled off as vintage, paired with a swing skirt like I did here.

Today I was home in bed all day with a horrible migraine, so I did not get dressed up. But for purposes of the Vintage Fashion Challenge on Instagram, I did a throw back to my St. Patrick’s Day Outfit. The color for today was green. It’s hard to see it this picture but my petticoat is also green.

I got to wear a new dress for the first time today! I have been excited to wear this dress today, because it screams ultimate 1950s house wife to me, I just forgot to wear my pearls! This dress was another great Amazon find and I am really impressed with the quality on the dress for less than $40 plus free prime shipping!

Today’s color for the Instagram Vintage Fashion Challenge is special to me, because it was my Nanie’s favorite color. Purple! She had so many purple clothes, it was so cute. I only have two vintage dresses in purple and I think its time I added more to my collection! Today’s dress is yet again another score from Amazon. I am amazed at the amount of good quality vintage inspired dresses I can find on Amazon for decent prices. This dress was less than $25 and free shipping with Prime. If you really want to dress vintage but you have a limited budget like me, Amazon is definitely a great place to look. Today I remembered to wear my Nanie’s pearls and I’m wearing one of her brooches too.

I am really liking this Instagram Vintage Fashion Challenge because its making me think about what I am going to wear ahead of time, rather than waiting until that morning to try and scrabble to pick something out. I’m excited for next weeks Challenge and to share it with you all.

Outfit of the Day

Outfits of the Day May 1st to 4th

This week was a short work week for me, because I flew back from Florida on Monday night. I did wear a comfortable vintage style outfit on Monday, but I was running around and then in the airport and on the plane for hours so I didn’t get a picture. So you only get 4 to see four outfits for the week day post update. I do post my outfit everyday on Instagram (sparkleshan), but I save the outfit details  and where everything is from, for my blog posts.

I’m not sure if this dress is available anymore, but I got it a few weeks ago during Unique Vintage’s $25 Dress Shop Sale, totally score!

Vintage Floral Dress from Unique Vintage

Thursday, May 3, 2018

This dress cost me less then $30 on Amazon and I got 2 day free shipping with Prime. The quality is actually really great for the price and I got a lot of compliments on the dress. I’m wearing the Zest is History Heel from Modcloth. I love these heels because they come in my tiny size 5, and most of my other vintage style heels are 5.5 which is slightly to big, but I make due because I can never find vintage shoes I like in my size. These heels come in multiple colors besides black.

The weather this week was my ideal temperature in the low 80s and 70s, so I got to wear some sleeveless dresses that I haven’t worn before and I was excited about that! Next week its supposed to be in the low 60s (boo) so I have a feeling I will be wearing a lot of cardigans. This weekend is the Kentucky Derby and I can’t wait to wear this awesome new dress and hat and share it with you all in my weekend outfit post!
