1960’s Vintage Top

July 13, 2014
I’ve been getting more into vintage shopping lately. I especially loved the vintage thrift stores I found on my vacation to Portland. I bought two cool 1960’s garments there.  First a teal and neon green skirt (see here) and then this top ….

Am I crazy … or is it really cute?  Well, sure it’s polyester and hot as heck in the middle of summer, but … there’s something I just love about it!

Maybe the mint green and coral seem on point to me right now.  

The vibe is kinda Laurie Petrie meets Mrs. Brady … and totally reminds me of a lady in my neighborhood where I grew up who always smelled like coffee and cigarettes.

Well, whatever the reason, I fell in love with it and brought it home!

To let it shine, I kept my other clothing choices simple … skinny jeans, nude wedges, straw tote, classic sunnies, and a few vintage cuff bracelets.

And geez, if my dogs aren’t photo bombing me, my husband is!
How can a fashionista get anything done around here? Ha!

So Dolls, what do you think of this crazy top?  
Do you shop vintage?

And do you have family photo bombers too?!

OXOX

    You're not crazy, love this top! It's very retro chic. I love statement tops because you can keep everything else simple like you did here and it does all the work for you. ~Cynthia

    A lovely top Dawn, what a good find. I liked the 60s skirt in the last post too. The photo bomb photo is cute! Lol

    That top is amazing!! It manages to be very retro, but also modern – you could wear this anywhere and fit right in. Looks fab styled with the black trousers. I adore shopping for vintage, and this just shows that now and again you can pick up something a bit different, that wouldn't normally be on your radar. What a fun way to add to your wardrobe! And yes I have a photobomber that tries to get into my pics in the nude!! I have to very carefully select photos for my blog… P x

      HAHA … well, that does make for an interesting photo bomber! Thanks for the sweet feedback! You're FAB.

    I think you made a wonderful find with this vintage top, dearest Dawn!! The colour combination is retro cool…and I love the sixties neckline and sleeves (I've always found this style more flattering than most modern tee shirts!!) I wish we had a vintage shop in our neighbourhood…I'd be a regular visitor for sure!!

    I love this top! Polyester is not my friend so I probably would've passed on it. I am trying to be better about not buying synthetic materials since they just don't breath.
