I haven’t posted for a while. I blame this in part on some good news….
But first a bit of background information. For the last few years whilst running Rag and Magpie I have also worked as a freelance designer. The good news? Last week I started a full time design contract in the the heart of London’s financial district. It’s all very exciting, corporate and quite a difference from commuting to your spare room and occasionally working in ones pyjamas.
For the first week I have been struggling with one question…
What does a vintage girl wear in a corporate workplace?
I am not really one for the I-work-in-a-bank look and can barely walk in the type of black stilletos that semed to be sported by all the other suit clad ladies around the office. And so I have had to think creatively about what to wear to work; combining a mixture of three new blouses and a black ruched pencil skirt from the high street and a mid-century style charcoal skirt suit I bough for ten pounds from TKMaxx about twelve years ago.
These are my options until the first pay day when I am looking forward to selecting the most office-friendly vintage and vintage style attire from Etsy.com, Ebay and London’s Brick Lane.
Vintage for the Office
As a headstart here are my favourites from Etsy, all worn with a court shoe and a vintage coat of course…
