Hand Me Down...Please

 . Iced Cream Nail Art - ModelsOwn .
.Skirt - Vintage . Shirt - eBay .
. Top - Topshop . Levi's Jacket - eBay

When most people hear their mother say "I have brought you some clothes your Auntie didn't want" from a relative that is in her 70's, the average teen would look back in disgust and question if your mother had in fact gone insane...I on the other hand found great excitement in the proposal!

i came across this diamond! the skirt is what i am in reference to! it is truly vintage to say the least! 
It is a rich dark green colour with a beautiful royal golden pattern on. Perfect for Autumn! The belt also came with it which is just a bonus!

Because the skirt is so bold i decided to match it with something simple, i did two different looks - One more casual than the other. The first being a White shirt with gold collar cuffs on that i got from eBay pretty cheap from Hong Kong or some other place like that...needless to say, cheap. The collar cuffs tied the shirt to the skirt with the gold tones. 

The more casual look was to wear the simple Tee from Topshop (sale) which was a lightweight material to contrast with the heavy shirt. the style is pretty vintage in a subtle way with the button down front and pocket. I then pared it with my trusty Levi's Jacket to add a more grunge look to a pretty rounded outfit.
