In honor of reaching 300 followers on our @miskabellevintage Instagram account, we are having our first Insta-sale TONIGHT! We will be posting 15 of our favorite fall items, in a variety of sizes and styles-- everything under $30. Be sure to follow, if you're not already!
When shopping for vintage, the main thing that draws my eye is an interesting print. Vintage fabrics not only offer unique patterns and color combinations, but are often much better quality than modern day cottons and polyesters-- that is, unless you can afford to shop designer labels. These celebrities are showcasing some pretty awesome printed pieces that most likely had awesomely high price tags. But we have the vintage look-a-likes currently in the shop!
And despite what some may think-- prints ARE easy to wear! I love that Kristen Wiig takes a super interesting skirt and pairs it with a simple white blouse. So easy! Or you could go the SJP route and do print on print...if you are a little more brave.
P.S. We've reached our goal of 300 instagram followers and are now gearing up for our first ever INSTA-SALE! Everything will be $30 and under! So if you're not following us yet, CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW and to be sure not to miss out on this sale!
Second in line after boots, my
favorite fall must-have is a great pair of jeans--in fact, I like to have
several well-loved pairs in my wardrobe to work with. I miss my jeans
during those hot summer months and then usually wear them to death once the
cool months come around.
My most-worn jeans for autumn are an easy pair of
slimming denim in a mid-wash. I usually go for a skinny leg so that I can
wear them both with flats or my aforementioned boots, but I also love the retro
feel of wide leg
jeans with a high rise. With the base of your outfit being a great pair
of denim, you can simply add a quirky blouse and some fun, colorful shoes (both
My next must-have pair of jeans for women are a
dark denim wash; great for a special date -- or even for "casual Friday"
at the office (a dark wash looks way more professional). I love this look
of a super girly vintage blouse with a sleek pair of jeans and stacked wood
heels. Chic but still easy.
I think the last pair of jeans
that every gal should have in her closet this fall are what I call a "wild
card"-- something just a little more special. Some great choices
would be printed jeans or some sort of coated denim. I like the idea of
something a little more edgy, like the ones shown below.
Being pregnant and dressing for cool weather has
been a challenge so far because I'm missing my favorite jeans! I don't
want to invest in anything too pricey as far as maternity-wear goes, so I'm
rotating between one pair of mid-wash jeans and some stretchy waist leggings.
Needless to say--I'm jealous of you ladies who can rock all the jeans you
want this fall! What are your go-to jeans? Something I've left off
this list? I'd love to hear...to live vicariously!
Okay, so I guess the title of this post gives it away, but:
In honor of the baby boy, here's a little BLUE themed shop preview! Another plus? All of these items are actually maternity friendly or actual vintage maternity pieces! Yes, I know, I should keep them for myself. But so far I'm digging my stretchy pants and long tank tops...so I'm not sure I'd get enough wear out of them. Lucky you!
My first pregnancy I took weekly bump photos, starting at 14 weeks. Never missed a week. This time around I haven't really been in the photo-taking groove, but I don't want to leave the pregnancy completely undocumented! So, let's see if I can get my butt in gear and take some pictures every once in a while, eh?
I have been coveting these Novella Royale Janis bells for so long that I decided I should take the plunge on some fun printed pants. I found these at Target and thought the elastic waistband would make them a pregnancy pant go-to. Turns out the wide elastic is just a bit too tight (I even exchanged for a bigger size!) and I've only worn them a couple times because they make me feel like I'm squishing the baby. Maybe I'll get some better use out of them next summer...
One thing I can count on to fit properly no matter how much my waistline expands? Accessories! I love this floppy felt hat Amanda thrifted for me last fall. It adds a nice bohemian touch to an otherwise boring outfit. My birthday is this weekend and my wish list also includes some more fun jewelry (I really want an ear cuff or some kind of ear piece! Of course I get the itch for a piercing when I'm physically not allowed to get one....) and the perfect pair of ankle booties (have you seen them? Let me know!).
I am off to start the birthday weekend festivities! Hope you all enjoy your weekend.
