Sock Hop

Last month I made my first vintage clothing purchase on Etsy.  I was very wary of making this move as I am petite but also have wide hips. I wasn't sure how to gauge the fit.  As soon as I saw this skirt, though, I feel in love with it.  I adore the 50s style and I loved the pink records on the gray fabric.  When the skirt arrived, it was a bit tight in the waist, but with a looser top (any one that is not form fitting) I was able to create a smooth look through the waist and hips. 

When I was a child, every day after school my mother would ask how my day was and then her second question was always "did anyone like your outfit?"  I think that question has stuck with me because now, as an adult, if no one compliments my outfit, I assume it looks bad!  I got a ton of compliments on this outfit, so I am guessing it is a keeper.  Perhaps I can pair it with a light pink fuzzy sweater to wear it in the winter.

Skirt: Craftycrowvintage on Etsy
Polo Shirt: Ann Taylor Loft Petite
Cardigan: J. Crew
Shoes: Aldo
Hair Clip: Ann Taylor Loft Outlet, summer 2011
The records on the skirt read "Eddie", "Tony", and "Perry"- yep, as in Como.  That's just how I roll. Do you own any vintage clothing?
