Looking at fashion from decades past I sometimes find the inspiration I am looking for to create the perfect look.  I like to remember what was in fashion in the past and then I try and create an updated version for todays fashion world.  Even though I wasn't born yet in some of these decades I still can appreciate their beauty.  When I saw this sixties inspired mod coat from Danier Leather I knew it was the perfect piece to bring the retro trend into my wardrobe while still staying modern.  I already had some other sixties inspired pieces in my closet such as this cute skirt and hat that I recently got and these white knee high patent boots that I haven't worn in years.  All the pieces seemed to work together so wonderfully to create this outfit! Don't you love it when an outfit just seems to make itself?!! So have a little fun with your clothing and make an outfit inspired by a certain decade.  Just make sure to put your own modern spin on it!

 

What decade would you use to make an outfit?

Awww the 60's I do remember them (slightly)!!! I always loved that look, those are fantastic boots. You brought the past into the future with style and grace. Keep it up my girl.

Hi Rebecca! Mmm, maybe I would say '70s or '80s :) Love your '60s inspired outfit, the coat is very nice and so are you!:) Kisses! xo

My style is always preferred early 50s, I love wasp waist (probably because I do not have it, lol) but I can also use style sixties. You look great with this black & white look! You always looks perfect!
May 13, 2014 2:50 PM By Rosy
This outfit definitely created itself! Every piece goes absolutely perfect together! You look like a dream. And I love how you stuck with just a black and white color palette. It's very sophisticated and elegant. The pop of red adds just the right amount of spunk! Very fun and creative as always! <3 katsfashionfix.blogspot.com

I love this, it's so gorgeous. The dog is precious. I think you did a fantastic job making the vintage look more modern, but still keep those vintage elements that we all love. Sometimes with vintage looks, people try too hard to copy every last detail of the old vintage look and I think it can make them look a bit older than they are, but giving it a modern twist keeps it lively and fun!! xx
May 14, 2014 5:04 AM By KizzyDoll
It's something that modern Audrey Hepburn would wear ;) Love every detail! :) xx
