I love texture and embellishment and when I came across this top in Beyond Retro I just couldn't resist. Very similar to the famous American Apparel one featured below it looks so beautiful on.
Recently I have been inspired by the shoot called 'Darling Buds' that was featured in Look magazine beginning of March (last image) The texture, prints and overall looks are beautiful and have really encouraged me to play around with my look an outfits for summer. Clashing florals and textures can create beautiful girly outfits.
I don' wear vintage half as much as I used to but it's finding gems like this top that make me find my love for it again. I love how you can always find a vintage version of something modern but it has little twists and originality it makes all the rummaging through everything worthwhile. This top has huge shoulder pads and billowing sleeves which gives it a really vintage look and a point of difference from the American Apparel version.
Raid your wardrobe get out all your florals and don't be afraid to clash them up and then add girly touches like a frilly sock and heel or sunglasses and a floral headband. Let's make our love for floral literally pop out this summer in 3D.
