Without a doubt I’m a sucker for all things vintage. But don’t get me wrong, I mean clothing-wise; I’m a sucker for vintage clothing. Swearing off modern technology as Mallory did in ‘Going Vintage’ (great book!), goes a little too far (I’m blogging, that’s my excuse..).

As thinking of vintage, the first thing that pops up in my mind is my diamond check black and white jacket. I found it at my favorite thrift store in Utrecht (Episode!). This jacket and me, yeah, it certainly was love at first sight. I’ve been wearing it already so many times.

And you know what, since today’s fashion is bringing back those retro vibes, I was thinking of showing you guys some monochrome love with this jacket today. It’s great to style a checked jacket like this with a (faux) black leather skirt and a lace T-shirt. If you want to go a little less into extreme: go for a plain white T and a simple black skirt. That’ll do the trick!

So what are you waiting for? Go check your thrift store for check prints, I’m telling you, it’s a true spring / summer ’14 essential. Do keep in mind to style it in a way that suits you. Fashion is all about wearing what YOU like and feeling confident in it!



THRIFTED B&W checked jacket / H&M black leather biker skirt (order a similar one from today’s H&M collection on here) / JANE NORMAN white lace t-shirt (get it here) / URBAN OUTFITTERS black high heeled ankle boots (or get these from Nelly.com) / THRIFTED ring



Share me your thoughts and tips on thrifting, I’m really curious about it! Enjoy what’s left of today! xoxo Frederique
