Every now and then I get the question why I’m not dressing totally “retro” and wearing modern tights instead of seamed stockings, for example. The answer: I love mixing true vintage with reproductions and modern items. I get my inspiration from old pictures, modern fashion shows as well as from my travel destinations. I don’t try to look exactly like a woman from the 40s or 50s. I just try to create my own and individual style.
This is why I really like Vive Maria. This brand offers a lot of super cute and comfy day dresses with just a little retro twist. One of my favourites is the “Miss Saigon Dress”. The dress has a wonderful Asian inspired floral print which makes you think of summer and sun. I really love the figure hugging tailoring and the super cute collar. To finish the look, I chose white accessories.
PS: Vive Maria also offers some very seductive dresses as you can see in this blog post.
