I’m a modern woman. Hear me Roar.
It’s totally modern to love retro vibes and want to be akin to a vintage pin-up, right? Right. It’s Friday, Let’s be modern and retro, it’s all the rage.
Here’s what I love about this vintage leopard skirt, it’s retro, very pinup, I love the slit. (Also, it was $10, I got it on Etsy, you can search silk leopard skirt). It’s also modern, you can’t help but notice that everywhere you look there are leopard print skirts/dresses/pants/shoes (and I’ve linked some of my favorites below). Leopard is a neutral. It goes with anything (how great would it look with red?), and yet gives you a little something. It’s great for modern women like us who are balancing modern and retro vibes, as there is nothing more retro than a great leopard print.
Another item with retro vibes? These platform shoes, yes you can find a pair at every price point and every color. I love the basic black, they lift and yet, because they aren’t a true heel, they’re so easy to walk in. ( These are HM, as we chatted about Wednesday, How to Fake It, I’m a fan of things that let us get on trend without breaking the bank or knocking off–and I love this satin). They look great with jeans, skirts, dresses, are a basic, and yet a conversation starter at the same time.
Off the Shoulder just for summer? Not a chance! This Jcrew number is a bit thicker than your average t-shirt, making it perfect for fall. And if you live somewhere where it actually gets chilly you can simply layer it over a turtleneck and remain super chic. Also? I love that off the shoulder manages the border between modern and retro vibes. It fits the theme and goes with everything in my closet. Win.
Modern Woman, retro vibes, perfect Friday. I think this is what it means to win?
