but we preferred pairing it with these Mod 60s pencil pants we found. This is a more modern take on the look. And the belt of course cause the argentines sure know their leather.
This is more Vogue Today than it's original McCalls in the 60's.

Some people think that vintage=old and not, shall we say fresh and vibrant. The beauty of vintage is that it is has a history, but it can be worn in a new way, the star component of a very fashion forward style sense.Vintage dealers like me crave these timeless pieces of beauty and curate collections that span decades and merge trends. An untrained eye might have banished a padded shoulder Mugler jacket from the 80’s or that drapey 90s Armani suit to the nether regions of the closet, or worse yet, the bottom of a garbage bag destined for Goodwill just because its trend had passed. At 1ofaFind we throw those two pieces together and create a bespoke ensemble worthy of the best “street chic” blogs!For many Vintage means “30 years plus”, for us it is past, present and future. It is all about fashion evolution. There are pieces that are hot to trot at this moment that we feel are destined to be timeless. There may also be designs from the more recent past that may not play along with trends of the moment and may even sometimes make us chuckle as we reminiscence about their original debut (think Peter pan collars, corduroy Gauchos and sweater vests) but don't laugh too loud because with the twist of a seam or the change of a hem this piece of design can resurface stronger than its original debut.
The best of fashion, the most seductive materials, the exceptional details, the perfect dart and the most exquisite buttons, vintage is easy, sexy sophistication: the woman you can’t take your eyes off at a party whose amazing stories of her past match her fabulous charmeuse dress or killer crocodile heels. She's definitely the one you’ll remember the next morning when you’re recuperating from the bubbly.
