Fabulous Fridays Linkup Party- Vintage Vibes!

Born in the 60’s and lived it up in the 70’s…that’s gotta be the reason why I’m so fashion nostalgic of those fabulous unequivocal decades. Being in the fashion world for a living, I should know better than to wanna live in the past…since fashion is ALL about change and moving forward. And yet, name me one designer that has not taken inspiration from history! Seriously, can you name one?

I’ll stick to that note and offer myself loads of pleasure by indulging into vintage- it’s the best I can do to tame my nostalgia. When I see any garment with a ‘groovy’ colour burst-print or pattern, I get so happy! I’ve personally been collecting vintage for awhile- but this past month or so I’m sort of binging and I need to refrain! In a few weeks I’ll be posting some great finds- stay tuned!!

Meanwhile, here’s this absolutely fabulous body-clinging maxi that I’ve paired with this animal print second-skin gem (that you’ve seen so many times before). I just can’t get enough of this magical print mix! What do you think?

Another thing I’m into these days: vintage muumuus! The weather was horribly humid at the beginning of the week- so this one was perfect. The colours aren’t my summer favourites…but sometimes you just need to change it up with great neutrals.

Speaking of collecting…do you enjoy neck parties? I mean layering your necklaces- the more the merrier? I find this fun from time to time- it’s a good way to wear all those pieces I’ve almost forgotten and left to ‘hang’ lol! Here’s to a whole neck-mess full of colliers!

And, this Wednesday, we went out to a resto for the first time in 8 months! Granted it was just pizza out on a terrace- but still! It was fun, and I enjoyed the ride to ‘finally going somewhere’…but believe it or not I couldn’t wait to get back home. Have I become a homebody now? I dunno, I guess this confinement has me thinking I wasn’t missing that much when it comes to pizza! I’ll have to try going out to a real dining place- somewhere where they don’t cook anything that I’ve been cooking up myself for months!

Wore this super comfy pink jumpsuit which was perfect for the hot sticky weather we’ve been having here in Montreal.
Staying true to my love of vintage… could not resist wearing this scarf the Italian way! Roman Holiday vibe!

All in all, it’s been a fun week!

Here’s my FAVOURITE FASHION DIVA from Last week’s Linkup: Kellyann of This Blonde’s Shopping Bag!

  1. This print dress with the other print sleeves is stunning. Great styling. I also love the dress with the print hem. So chic and unexpected. You have a really great, well curated wardrobe.

  2. Gah, you are so fun, my friend! I am loving all of this from that funky vintage dress to your muumuu to your piles of gold necklaces! So freaking fun! I just ate in a restaurant last weekend for the first time in 16 months! It was cool and a little bit weird. Thanks so much for the feature this week, by the way! It always makes my day.

  3. Hi Lucy!
    I thought the sleeves on the dress were part of the dress! The mix of fun, funky pattern and colors works so well.
    I also love the scarf as my grandma would say, Babushka ! Elegant on you!
    I know I was excited to get out and go out somewhere. We kinda went overboard the first week of going out and I think we ate out 3 times that week…
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Ok, this is the first time that I’ve ever thought, “I want a muumu!”. But I love how you styled it and your vintage vibe is fun and engaging. What a party we could have in that closet of yours!

  5. I totally agree about fashion repeating itself. The phrase, What goes around, comes around, is certainly true in fashion. And thank goodness! The 70s had such a cool vibe and I love your take on this era, Lucy! Gold chains, paisley, bold prints, the list goes on…

  6. Thanks so much for the link-party, Lucy! I’ve entered two of my recent posts – I think you will like the yellow and pink outfit, as it’s much the same colours as your fabulous vintage pattern mix in your first look here!

    I adore vintage, as I think you may know – I’m also guilty of hanging onto so many vintage pieces…I try to limit myself, but then I just find more!

    I find it funny how cyclical fashion is – oh, business shorts are back in style? Let me go thrift an amazing pair for under $20! However, if you’re a savvy secondhand shopper (which I am), you can find those trends – even the big designer names! – at a pittance. I recently found a Carven floral mini for $25 – it is only 4 years old and retailed for over $500!

    I’ve been doing what I call the Movie Star Wrap with my scarves just like that! We have a convertible so I have to wrap my hair or it’ll be snarled at the end of the drive.

    Have a fabulous weekend!
