lady in red

Hello Everyone! 

I turned 27, I mean 17. waaaah! Leon and I had dinner at yet another Steven Starr restuarant, Talula's Garden. The atmosphere was amazing, the pictures couldn't portray its true beauty and rustic setting. Unfortunately it rained and we couldn't enjoy the outdoor patio. 

Now for the more important part! What did I wear?  I'm so excited to introduce you to my favorite item in my closet currently. She is vintage. One of the main reasons why I love vintage and thrift shopping is because I find pieces like this, one of a kind. Meet my lady in red, a vintage red leather Valentino skirt!!! YES, RED LEATHER with CROCHET FABRIC PANELS. She is soft as butter and the color is vibrant and and and I just LOVE her! 

This is the setting outside at Talula's Garden . Lots of greenery and lights, breathing in the fresh fall air. 

Yes, I did say skirt. I hiked it up and made into a dress. I told you I was a transformer. But I can't wait to pair this with a plunging top or a white button down. 

Before dinner we took a few snaps across the street at Washington Square Park. 

I couldn't bare the thought of covering her up or over doing it with accessories. So I kept it simple with a owl cuff bracelet, $5 and a vintage scarf I picked up for $3. 

Isn't she lovely? I paired her with my something blue from my wedding. I love these heels, blue suede. Ahhh.. A birthday outfit could not be more perfect. Vintage Valentino and Blue Suede Louboutin.

Thank you so much for reading. I really enjoy sharing my vintage finds with you! If only you can see what I do when I see these pieces. My heart races, I get hot flashes, deep breathing is involved and there may be some jumping up and down in stores. Ekk.. I'm a true fashion, vintage and thrift shopping dork.

Oh my god Anh, I love your blog! And Valentino is my favorite designer :). At at least the shoes and bags. Where did you find the skirt?

Thank you so much. That means more to me than you can imagine ! The vintage Valentino is from a vintage store in Philly. It's actually a hidden gem in my opinion. It's called Philadelphia vintage and consignment on 12th and sansom st. Ask for Johnny and tell him Anh sent you !! Hope you continue reading my blog. Thanks again!

I love the blue and red combo, it's so playful and beautiful at the same time.

Thank you! I’m more of a contrasting girl vs matching!
