Vintage or is it? Yes as you are aware I am a lover of vintage stores and I have found some unbelievable pieces in some gorgeous vintage boutiques here in Cork.
Do you ever get a moment when you try a piece on and you instantly fall in love!! I actually did a tiny little dance in the boutique when trying this beauty. Its so different and unique and totally me!!
I spotted this blouse in Eva May Vintage one day and after trying it on knew I had to have it…it was a little bit unique and reminded me of an Irish Designers piece.
When I bought the top and brought it home I kept thinking how it reminded me on one of my favourite Irish Designers Catriona Hanley. I remembered I admired and lusted over one of her pieces a year ago…obviously lusting was all I could do as I couldn’t afford the price tag at the time..but when I scrolled through her facebook page low and behold I think by visiting one of my favourite vintage stores I might have accidentally nabbed that top that I had been lusting after, but for a fraction of the price at €69 …The resemblance is uncanny don’t believe me well check this pick out here
I love the detail in this piece, its such a stunning top. The layering of tulle is so pretty and the workmanship that went into it is unreal.
I paired this top with my leather Freddy jeans and nude heels as I wanted the blouse to stand out!! The freddy leathers you will find here
How amazing is the detail on the back too!! It has pearls sown onto button poppers and the detailing is out of this world.
When I asked the lovely Linda from Eva May where she bought the piece she told me she found it in a vintage boutique in Paris…so ladies it goes to show it pays to shop in Vintage stores ..I promise you, you’ll never know what you might find
