Shoes- 1970s Vintage:: Skirt: Vintage, altered by me:: Belt- Anne Klein:: Purse- Vintage:: Tights-American Apparel:: Sunglasses- Thrifted
Matthew and I share a mutual love for fashion, vintage, and sewing. We met at Buffalo Exchange four years ago- he was a buyer and I was selling back some thrifted finds to purchase a vintage dress. I must admit, he encourages me to rummage through charity shops and flea markets. I often find fancy bowties, wingtip shoes, and leather bags to add to his growing collection. Although he dresses quite dapper everyday, he is also a sucker for vintage Pendleton shirts and Southwestern paraphernalia. It's been fun to see his style progress- from a t-shirt and slim slacks to 1960s ties and blazers.
After a day of exploring Ann Arbor and eating homemade ice cream in Kerrytown, I snapped a few photos of Matty's weekend outfit. He is quite good at mixing patterns, something that I am quite envious of. We both tailored parts of our outfit (I altered my skirt , he altered his pants). And he wanted me to tell you all that he is quite proud of his newly-thrifted 1940's vintage bowtie.
