Versace inspired clothing immediately catches my eye whenever I’m at the thrift store. I have 2 or 3 blouses in my wardrobe that can easily be mistaken for a Versace original (ha!), but this vintage Versace inspired blouse is my favorite, hands down. Purchased for a whopping $2, this piece has hung in there with me for about 3 years or so. It’s one of those clothing items that feels like an old friend; it’s comforting, flattering, and speaks to my personal style. All the makings of the perfect wardrobe item.
I love wearing outfits like this. Besides maxi skirts and leggings, I feel most comfortable in a pair of (the perfect) ankle length fitted jeans and a flowy top. I’ve probably mentioned that several times on the blog before, but it’s so true. Outfits that require minimal fuss is all I want. Don’t get me wrong; I’m a sucker for some avant-garde pieces, as well as some trendy styles. And trust me, I can pull out a freakum dresses and stilettos when necessary. I just prefer, in my day to day life, to wear clothing that’s practical to my lifestyle.
It’s funny…some people think because you’re style is simple and practical that you can’t like any other style. That’s ridiculous. Yes, I’m comfortable in clothing items that, to some, seem simple but I love and constantly draw inspiration from all styles. But when you get right down to it, I’m a simple girl who can practically live in leggings, maxi’s and outfits like this.
So tell me, what do you think of my Versace inspired thrift find? Do you have a clothing item(s) in your closet that’s like an “old friend”? Let me know!
