Fashion goes round and round like a merry go round. Its not unusual to have fashion looks from bygone years making a reappearance in the present. Flip through the fashion mags, and one thing is clear â€“ vintage is cool because vintage is about being unique.
Rachel of Xtralicious contacted me recently. Xtralicious is a boutique owned by Rachel, that specialises in vintage inspired fashion. I really like that gold kimono top and black pants look above. I would wear the top (Betty – S$28) with a slimmer set of pants so I donâ€™t look so flowy; and Iâ€™d wear the flowy pants (culottes! – S$39) with a more fitting top. Being short has its disadvantages but I think this would create a bit of a modern twist to a vintage outfit. They sell vintage inspired jewelry and accessories too to complete your look.
Xtralicious is based in Singapore (Hi neighbour!) and prices quoted are in Singapore dollars. They do ship internationally and accept paypal, so thatâ€™s a bonus for international shoppers looking for an inexpensive vintage-inspired deal. It might be helpful to give an approximate idea of shipping costs for international shipping so buyers have an idea what to expect.
You know, that pant suit has really fired my imagination now! :P
