Vintage Versace

A little, or not so little, known fact about me, is that I love vintage clothes. I used to wear a lot of vintage items in my 20’s when I lived in L.A. At the time, it was the thing to do. Over the past five years, I’ve really started getting into vintage designer wear through local consignment shops and sites like The Real Real, where I picked up this vintage Gianni Versace skirt.

After watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story a few years ago, I was on a mission to get my hands on anything he designed. I tried to pick something in my budget that I might actually wear, so a safety pin gown was out of the question, but a grey wool skirt was a score.

Vintage Versace Skirt
It’s beautifully constructed. Made in Italy, 100% wool, lined, and has a purple felt detail at the hem. Based on the tag, it looks like it’s from the 1980’s. Also, it has pockets.

But it’s vintage, so it’s one of a kind. The boots are several years old by Ugg and the shirt is Banana Republic {you can shop this look below.} 

For 2023, I have started thinking of my “personal brand” and who I want to be {thank you Melissa Chataigne!} and part of that is a promise to myself to wear the clothes I have in my closet instead of the same jeans, t-shirts and sweaters.

On a side note, Melissa has a great style philosophy and newsletter called Elevated Living, you should check it out. I’m definitely trying to elevate my look in the new year.

The occasion for this particular look was afternoon tea with the women from my Bible Study. I suck at getting pictures of myself wearing actual outfits, so this recreation will have to do. The good thing about vintage wear, is that if you get bored, you can resell it and buy something new.

New Year, New You 😉
