This will be the last post of the year and I decided to make it a festive one. I have wanted to do some work outfit posts for a while but it is difficult because I leave for work early in the morning and I'm too tired by the time I get home. I'm not a vintage purist when it comes to work clothes either - comfort and practicality is important for me - so I mix vintage with repro and mostly wear separates.
Whilst I don't buy repro dresses, I am a fan of certain repro separates and I cannot get enough of this Collectif skirt. In fact, I did a swap with my friend Vicki exchanging one of my vintage plaid skirts to get this one! Swapping vintage for repro, crazy isn't it?! Except the vintage one was a little too big for me and this one fits quite nicely so it was a good swap.
I wish they did this skirt in other colours, I would definitely get more! It has easily become my go-to work skirt this festive season.
I don't own many Christmas specific vintage items but I just love these holly leaf screw back earrings!
Do you wear purely vintage to work or do you like to mix vintage and reproduction clothing?
