Vintage shopping isn’t always about the weird and the wonderful (though there’s certainly plenty of that).
It’s also about the classic and the ladylike. Like this made-in-Canada, midi-length knit skirt. It has a wonderful sheer quality that doesn’t quite translate in pictures but looks beautiful in person.
Which brings up a really good point — always, always test your vintage dresses and skirts for the see-through-ness before leaving the house. So many of these gorgeous old pieces were made to wear with slips and it’s best to find that out before you arrive to a meeting with your editor.
You know what else is great to find out? How badly your lawn needs cutting. My Prada espadrilles have some serious platforms on them and the fact that they’re completely enveloped by the grass, well…
At least the beast doesn’t mind.
