Harkening back to the turn of the century when all glasses were metal-framed with small circular lenses, they’re an absolute work of art. Nowhere have I seen anything like these other than in antique shops where I lust for them. These are the type of glasses to put on display when they’re not in use. (And you bet I do!) The vintage spectacles called for a dramatic outfit. The black wide brim sun hat I originally bought for Halloween last year came in handy for blocking the sun out and looking pretty darn stylish, if not eccentric.
Adding to my retro thrills, high-neck tops and dresses are everywhere again! I haven’t seen so many available since the 90s – oh, joyous resurging trends! This top is actually a swimsuit top, though it’s also perfect as a crop top. For me, if I’m going to be showing certain areas on my body I don’t usually exhibit publicly, I like to add some contrasting elements to feel more comfortable, and more myself – and that’s what personal style should feel like. Right? The vintage black maxi skirt is made of my favorite draping material, it’s heavy, it hardly wrinkles and here, it streamlines the outfit, leading the eye down to the black platform wedge sandals. It’s a cosy and artistic look, perfect for backyard cocktails Welcome to my “minimal retro summer goth” look. Happy summer!!
