Blacklist Vintage was packed with local vintage fashion lovers for their Second Annual Vintage Did It First show. The idea is simple: using the stores many treasures to re-create trendy modern-day styles using the clothes that bored them at first. Stylists use vintage clothing to re-create the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Lanvin, Valentino, and many more. Here are our three favorite styles that we think are easiest to incorporate into day to day wear.
First is the Crimson Velvet Pant Suit inspired by Ralph Lauren. Why do we love it? Overall, the rich, luxe texture; it brings an edge to any look and gives an otherwise basic suit more substance. We love the chandelier necklace and the smoking slippers are a nice touch.
Next, is the Boho Sweater inspired by Michael Kors. This look consists of a basic gold/ metallic dress coupled with a carelessly chic long neutral sweater with a fur collar. A must for this outfit is an updo. If you have long flowing hair it would only distract from the beauty of the collar. Using a patent leather belt shows off the waist and makes the look complete.
The key piece that inspired our next choice ensemble is Vivienne Westwood’s wool plaid pants. The belted, high-rise waistline creates an hourglass shape every woman lusts for, while the gradually tapered leg makes for a long, more sexy overall appearance. The graphic tee and trench coat add a casual punk rock feel.
A special thanks to Blacklist Vintage for hosting an delightful event. Shopping your amazing collection of merchandise, $3 drinks and awesome throwback music was a treat. PHOTOS BY STACY SCHWARTZ on Saturday, September 22, 2012.
