vintage inspired fashion on a budget
so in the last post i challenged myself to build an vintage-inspired outfit without using anything vintage, today i try to put together another vintage-inspired outfit for under $35! yes the whole outfit for under $35 (ring and charm bracelet excluded)! and every item was under $10 (see below)… other than the vintage and thrifted items, i still have to admit that I had a few advantages, for example i got the beautiful charm bracelet from Tinny as a birthday present, also the peter pan lace collar top and the ruffled waistband shorts were both from Dressup, a wholesale online store based in Taiwan. but i just wanted to prove to myself… and possibly some of you, that a cute vintage-inspired outfit doesn’t need to be expensive!
how did i do? =)

Love the nails and super love the shorts, they’re so cute. As usual you have a dope hat, I really need to get on that.
aww you look so cute dear 🙂 yes, agree with you, a cute vintage-inspired outfit doesn’t need to be expensive 😀
I love Metric and your last detail shot! The bag is amazing.. I can’t believe you found it for only 3.99! :O

wahhh! I love your style! ^^ It’s so cute & pretty~ I love the ring you have on too! where did you get it?
Hi! Yes that is my kitty! I have 4 ^^

I love your outfit! It’s so cute and girlie. *^_^*
Thanks for the comment – I love your romantic style. The bag is amazing! I can’t believe you got in a thrift/charity shop for only $3!
What a lovely place! Loved the photos 🙂
You did a really great job with this outfit Annie! It’s hard to believe the entire outfit cost less than $35 because it definitely looks much more expensive than that! I love the frilled band on the shorts and the peter pan collar top! 🙂
I LOVE IT! i cannot believe the outfit was so cheap, it looks expensive! amazing! clap clap clap ;D
