Vintage Tea Time Shoot

We so loved this 1970s geometric print secretary dress, that we just had to shoot it in action! The perfect tea time or Sunday brunch ensemble for a cool spring day, this is an easy outfit to style with accessories you already have!
The gold metal accessories pick up on the golden tan tones of the diamond print on the dress, and the bangles are a great way to add an element of fashion by juxtaposing Indian inspired jewelry next to this original mod dress.
This chunky antique gold metal and yellow glass bead necklace was something the Vintage Diggs owner picked up while traveling in Brazil years ago, and it has become a favorite accessory in her wardrobe as well as a valuable styling piece. We recommend picking up vintage treasures on your travels, not only does it add an eclectic feel to any look you style it with but you also have a great memory to associate it with and a unique treasure no one else will be wearing.
Play with different metals when accessorizing an outfit, too much of one color can be boring. Even though the matching belt has a silver clasp, we have styled our model with gold accessories for a look that is modern vintage chic!
Tan heeled pumps in a slightly darker shade can coordinate perfectly without looking too matchy-matchy. This is a great trick for wearing vintage without looking like you're wearing a costume, if you over coordinate with exact colors your outfit can look dated.

Happy Styling!
