As I mentioned last week, Anabella and I spent last Monday experimenting with more editorial style shots because my friend let us play in her amazing apartment. In love with her vintage leather sofa, I decided to photograph this retro 80’s jumpsuit with the couch as the backdrop. The suit belongs to one of my best friends, Kathy. I’ve talked about Kathy before–she is also a blogger–but more importantly her eye for vintage is unbeatable. Sometimes she sells some of it on eBay, and you should seriously check once a week or so to see what she has been posting, cuz you can get everything from Vintage furs to last season’s Jeffrey Campbell’s.
As much as I adore Kathy and respect her vintage shopping ability, I think we disagree on how the suit should be worn. When Kathy gave it to me to borrow, she said it had a “deep plunging V neck” and I saw the double-sided tape on the inside of the “neck line” to prove that she had worn it as such. However, there is a tag on the inside of the supposed neck line, which made me decide to put in on backwards, which I much prefer. This just goes to show you, that no matter which way it was intended, experimenting with your wardrobe is always the way to go! And it looks pretty fabulous either way. Which way would you wear it? Check at the bottom of the post for links to some similar vintage jumpsuits I found online!
