In this case, it's my new vintage top:
I do love me some shiny! This is probably late 60s or early 70s (metal zipper, lurex thread, the shaping of it) - I got it for about $20 in a vintage shop. It's in excellent condition.
In order to not look like a crazy lady in vintage clothes, I mixed it with a basic black skirt, a long boyfriend cardigan, and some very modern shoes. Add a vintage bracelet and a mixed pearl necklace and voila!
A shot of the back of the top:
I love the mix of colours (red, orange, yellow, pink on the black background) and the "painty" quality of the pattern, which has a nice modern look to it.
The bracelet is Trifari (it's marked), probably from the early 60s - this is another one of my mom's pieces that I nabbed from her jewelry box when I was in high school. Hi, Mom!
I love these old-school labels on vintage clothing:
Hard to tell in the main picture, but I have dark gold and black tights on.
