My Little Black-Vintage-Dress

Hello!

I don’t know if I’ve said this before but I’m a huge fan of vintage clothing. The first vintage thing I owned was my grandma’s black-lace dress (which I’m wearing on the photos below). I remember I saw it on my mom’s closet while she was doing some closet clean-up and told her I wanted to stay with that dress. I loved that it had this old-elegant look but it was still a dress I could wear in the present. Eventhough it was pretty long and a little bit damaged I knew it just needed some tailoring and new accessories to make it look as chic and lady-like as I imagined it in my head. I’ve wear this dress a couple of times but I have to admit it is kind of falling apart, that’s the bad thing about vintage clothing. So I’m creating this new “What I Wear” section in my blog and decided to wear this dress for my first photoshoot to be able to share with you a part of me. Hope you like it.

Share through Instagram (@whitegurumx) or Facebook (facebook.com/whitegurumx) your vintage look and I’ll be so happy to post your outfit this coming friday on the blog.

Hola,

No se si les había comentado esto antes pero soy una fanática de la ropa vintage. Recuerdo que la primer cosa vintage que tuve fue el vestido negro y encaje de mi abuelita (el cual estoy usando en la foto de abajo). Recuerdo que cuando vi este vestido en el closet de mi mamá, mientras ella hacía limpia de closet, le dije que yo quería quedarme con el vestido. Amo ese look antiguo y elegante que de alguna manera hace que el vestido pueda usarse en el presente. Aunque el vestido estaba un poco largo y roto, sabía que con la ayuda de la costurera y agregando nuevos accesorios podía hacer que éste se tuviera el look chic y lady-like que me imaginé. He usado este vestido un par de veces pero debo admitir que ya está por deshacerse, esto es lo malo de la ropa vintage. Así que he creado este nuevo apartado en mi blog llamado “What I Wear” y decidí usar este vestido para mi primer photoshoot para poder compartir con ustedes un poco de mi. Espero les guste.

Comparte  por Intagram o Facebook tu look vintage ya que este viernes estaré compartiendo tu outfit en el blog.

xx,

Alejandra García

  2. WOW! This is your grandmothers dress, thats is such an amazing story! The dress is even more pretty because is it’s vintage background, I love the black piping. Your wedges and sunnies are perfect as well, giving it a modern touch! 🙂

    GREAT post.
