Vintage Valentine's Day Fashion: One Modern Dress, 3 Vintage Ways

First fashion post ever! I'm really excited to bring you this series where I show you some of my sweet vintage fashion finds! Excuse my photo quality while I learn the ins & outs of it all.

Look 1: Simple & Classic
I got this dress for a mere $27 at Forever21.  I love the gorgeous merlot color.

I wanted to jazz it up with a little bit of vintage, so I sprinkled on a New Eve Locket:

And my favorite vintage woven loafers:

Look 2: V-Day Date!
A vintage lace top from a church rummage sale is layered over the dress:

This repurposed bullet shell & quartz crystal necklace gives the look a harder edge:

 Look 3: The Office 

I added a vintage pencil skirt in a coordinating pattern and vintage black leather belt for a fun & work-appropriate look:

 Outtake just to show you that I'm human. But you probably guessed that.
