Vintage and Not My Size: December 2017

So I don’t mean to toot my own horn but my vintage and not my size collection on Etsy is filled with a lot of great clothing and shoes that I can’t buy because they’re not my size.

Since I’ve been super busy lately, and Christmas is in only 3 days (eep!), I thought I’d do another one of these posts in hopes that someone else will buy one of these bad boys.

Vintage 1930s Dress

I’ve been into flapper-esque clothing a lot recently and this dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love how it has vintage appeal but it’s toned done so that it would fit so well in modern life. It’s absolutely stunning! Alas, being the short one I am, this dress is as tall as I am and I would not want to tailor such beautiful work.

Vintage Black Trench Coat

I have a thing for trench coats and this one is absolutely stunning. I love the cut, the texture, the colour – everything! And I’d bet it would hold up better than some of my other coats have.

Admittedly this one actually is my size and would fit well but I’m not about to pay $300+ for a coat. Maybe if they lower the cost by a lot, I’ll buy it.

So this dress is a little different but I love Betsey Johnson and think this would make a lovely goth-y summer dress, even though it’s not entire black. However it again would be a bit long on me so it needs to go to someone taller.

Embroidered Lace Cardigan

This embroidered lace cardigan is just a little too big for me and a bit above my budget but it is absolutely gorgeous! I don’t wear lace as much as I used to but the detail on this is stunning. I’d definitely like to see someone wear this one day!

Black Romper

So the most affordable thing on this list is this black romper, which I’d totally buy if it were actually my size. I love how it has a vest detail and would look great in summer or paired with some tops and leggings to give it a spookier look. It’s a different piece that would look great but it’s just not my size.

So I should’ve taken note of prices before compiling this list but it’s almost Christmas, right? I tag posts like these under “inspiration” so hopefully you can find something like these for a better price.

I hope everyone has a great Yule or a merry Christmas and I’ll hopefully be back next week. Until then!
