Career Style: Modern Vintage

 This outfit was inspired by some vintage photos that I found at a local estate sale.  Ever since I saw them, I’ve been completely obsessed with peplums and jeweled, cluster brooches.   This set (created on Polyvore) was my attempt to mix mid-century style with modern accessories.  The palette is warm and pretty, but still elegant and simple.

Flutter Of Wings Jacket, $80
J.Crew Wool crepe pencil skirt – dark plum, $150
Grey zip shoe boots, 45 GBP
Tinley Road Flower Stud Earring, $26
Grey Suede Frill Cummerbund Belt, $50

I love the way the pleated belt cinches in the waist while complimenting the shape of the peplum.  It’s a little more interesting than just breaking out a skinny belt.  

If you wanted to, you could incorporate grey tights or more jewelry.  But sometimes, less is more.

    I'm not sure where you got the gray boots from but Cole Haan makes a similar pair of boots.
