Time travel


I've had this vintage skirt and blouse set for almost a year now.
It belonged to a great aunt who passed it down to me.
I am guessing it is from the 70's.
The label reads Argenti, size 6, the fabric is 40% silk and 60% linen
and it was made in Hong Kong.
As she is taller, I had the hem brought up about 4 inches.
Then I had it cleaned an ironed.
I had tried it on SO MANY times before and it 
just did not seem to fit right.
I finally wore it today.

ARGENTI vintage blouse and skirt - H&M black wrap kimono belt - Pagani bag - Innovativi wedges -
Vintage cameo pendant

I think the blouse it a little boxy and that the skirt is till big on me.
I tried wearing the pieces separately, like the skirt below
but I am not convinced.


So, I'd like to know what you think.
Would you keep it ?


Happy Monday !

I love them worn together, it looks like a dress. Though i see why you think the top is too boxy.

I'm not sure about the blouse, but the skirt by itself works.
Chic on the Cheap

I'm adoring the print. Maybe you could wear a more fitted blouse on top to give your body more shape against the shape of the skirt? The blouse would look great with a pair of pants or a pencil skirt!

Hmmm . . . I think I like the skirt on its own best, I do like the print very much. Thanks for linking up with Visible Monday!

Cool print, and great colors! I would keep it - I love clothing/jewelry with a story. I think I like it best as separates.

I love the print in the dress and the fabric blend sounds wonderful. Perhaps you need to take it in on each side as well.

It's a challenging item, but has real possibilities. Work with it. I can see it as part of a colorful Spring ensemble.

I think it looks great on you to be honest! And the print looks like it would be very versatile.

Keep the skirt and shorten it more. Keep the top and pair with slim-fitting pants. The print is gorgeous!

I love that you got this from your great aunt. I like the the skirt worn with the black cardi. It kind of modernizes the look a bit.
