Old Style Blouse to New Vest

on July 14, 2013

Here’s a real easy restyle. I thrifted this blouse at Talize recently. I was drawn to the colours and print. I’m a sucker for florals.

Love the lavender colours in this print.

From the tag, I could tell it was probably from the 80s or 90s and suited for someone on the more mature side. I have a feeling it was probably separated from its skirted bottom somewhere in the donation pile. The 80s and 90s were notorious for these 2 piece sets.

I went to work (this was going to be really quick). All I was going to do was remove the sleeves and straighten out the bottom so it was even. Then I tried it on and actually thought it looked cute as a vest, so I’m going to keep it this way. I intend to work it layered over a tank top or maybe even on its own with a nice light skirt or light coloured capri pants.

If you’re drawn to the colours and patterns in a garment and it’s in excellent shape (this one was-it looked like it had seen very little wear), I say go for it. I feel so pretty wearing this!
