All White Vintage: The Struggle

During which I convince myself to shop vintage again.

With a limited wardrobe, all white can be a bit tricky. By “limited wardrobe”, I mean my wardrobe as I once wore my white Levi’s with a linen button up and ended up looking like an enlightened Martha Stewart on vacation.

This time around, I played it safer with my reliable, summer-ready combo – tiny little cap sleeve tee and my favorite vintage silk trousers from @naninvintage (previously worn here).

Okay I lied a bit in my title – the only vintage I’m wearing are the trousers and sunglasses. I’ve found that secondhand and vintage pieces are the hardest things to shop for. Although I end up loving all my vintage pieces, I’m inherently lazy and when a secondhand store has a bit of a funky smell, I’m put off going again for months.

Honestly, it’s bad! I really should buy more vintage clothes, it’s where I’d find my Levi’s, silky button ups and summery dresses, but sometimes I just don’t want to spend a whole day trying to find something.

Do y’all follow @elizabethsmart? Such a babe, and such a secondhand addict (from what I gather haha). If there’s ever been a reason to keep at it with the secondhand stores, she’s the one. I mean her finds & the fact that these trousers are falling apart by the minute are motivation enough for me to stop being such a brat, and spend a little time to find the things I actually want to buy.

On another note, my sandals are & Other Stories and my leather trench is Mango, both from two years ago. That counts as vintage now though right?

  • You definitely don’t look like Martha Stewart here, love the top! And I feel the same way about vintage. I don’t like to spend too much time shopping (unless it’s from my bed) so I’m too impatient to spend all day looking through thrift store racks. Not the best trait but oh well.

    Such a great look and I totally feel you! Often I don’t have that much time to do successful vintage shopping. However, sometimes it’s a great way to find some cool and unique pieces :)
    xx, Carmen –

  • I love your whole look. I also like vintage and shopping in vintage shops is like treasure hunting. :-))

    Yes buying second hand can be challenging, the size availability, the condition, yes the smell, but you can find some jems that you would not otherwise afford. I found a pair of almost brand new Cole Haan knee high studded leather boots for $60 they retailed for $400 so got to love that!
