GUESS WHO'S WEARING ELSIE VINTAGE;- BACKLOG

Hello Phoenixes...
So sorry about the lack of posts. Finally figured that school cramps up my blogging mojo.
Oh well, i am back.
I have so many pictures of people wearing Elsie Vintage pieces, i actually don't know where to start.
Brace yourself... i am gonna feature 3 people. (image overload! LOL)


DEBBY;-


This is Debby wearing Our vintage wrap-around blouse. i personally love the colour mix on it. I love the way she styled it and the clash f print is oh-so chic. 







NNEKA;-
This is Nneka. . . Fashion blogger, www.neks2u.com . She was photographed in New York during Fashion week wearing an Elsie Vintage Batwing blouse. I love the layering and nude contrasts.





AYO;-




This is Ayo. This dress came in a very unflattering shape and i had to recycle it into a trendy sleeveless gown. A vintage piece,no matter how it comes aint always supposed to remain the same. 







The dress before its recycle.

There you have it,folks.
There are still more pictures but i'd post in due time.
Gonna unveil the next blog sale date soon on this blog,but if you follow the Elsie Vintage page (@ElsieVintage ), i am sure you already know. *winks*

GUESS WHO'S WEARING ELSIE VINTAGE;- KALEIDOSCOPE

Whenever i see vintage pieces, I get so excited.
I carefully pick them to match today's trend so one doesn't end up looking like a grandma from the 16th century. One thing that trips me most about vintage clothes are the prints. Their ability to bring life into an outfit in a kaleidoscope of colour. 
Anyways, I went out today to watch a movie as an official "bye-bye" to my social life because school starts tomorrow. The Movie was in 3d and was so crappy,we regretted paying that much only to be given glasses that made the screen so dull, blurry and greenish.
My friend,Ngozika ended up wearing her Elsie Vintage Sheer blouse and she looked awesome in it. I loved the colour mix on the blouse and the way it hugged her body like a second skin.
Check out the pictures;-












I ended up keeping a Blouse out of the Elsie Vintage stock. *WINKS*
I mean,I deserve it. I try as much as possible not to get high on my own shit. Self-control is important but i just couldn't resist keeping it in my wardrobe. I LOVE THE PRINT.
