One of my favorite things about vintage shopping is getting to repurpose clothing. I headed out to Monkies Vintage on the drag last week before Thanksgiving with my friend and photographer Monique for a day of vintage shopping and shooting and was not disappointed by the selection at this hip, amazingly curated shop. I spent about an hour in the fitting room trying on vintage dress after dress then fur after fur.
It. Was. Amazing.
I ended up leaving with my Thanksgiving shirtdress, a beautiful pink and black dress and this authentic Scottish kilt that I definitely thought was just a super cute skirt at first. Once the shop owner mentioned that it was a legit kilt, I was legit sold. I decided to modernize it a bit with classic black accents throughout, really letting the skirt be the star of the show, as it very well should be.
Thank you to Monkies Vintage for sponsoring this post & to my readers for supporting the retailers that support me!
