Sorry for being absent for a bit!
But I have a serious question:
Is it messed up to upcycle vintage clothing? This little number is something I've grown up seeing my mom wear every so often. And to be frank, the real outfit looks nothing like how I've styled it here. I'm not saying I don't like how it's intended to be worn; just saying that I wanted it to be true to my aesthetic.
But I've struggled with the idea of permanently altering my hand-me-downs for a long time. I'm scared there will be some day that comes where I regret doing so and frankly, I'm afraid to undermine the integrity of an outfit. For pix...clipping and cropping here and there is fine with me. But otherwise, maybe we should just embody the history of the piece instead of trying to center it too much around the present?
After all, trends are trends and vintage is forever.
