Retro + Kate Spade


Even though I was born in the 80's, I have always been intrigued by retro style. The flashing and vibrant colors, the obnoxious patterns, and all that jazz screams fun in all the right ways! Hence, I was inspired to opt for a retro look with a modern spin in today's look! 

Dress: old / Sandals: AMI Clubwear (c/o) / Tote: Kate Spade / Cardigan: Lixmee (c/o) / Sunglasses: For Me

If you can remember this neon dress, I've already styled it here. Today, I added a fun mix of accessories to transform a simple neon dress into a retro chic outfit. This grey cardigan from Lixmee is a new addition in my closet. I got it specifically for the fact that I needed a new cardigan that can be easily mixed and matched with other pieces in my closet. Meanwhile, the Mini Harmony Tote from Kate Spade has been on my wishlist for such a long time. It took me a while to contemplate whether it was worth splurging on. But I bought it around Christmas time so I considered this purchase a gift for myself. 

For some more retro touch, I added the pink sunglasses and gladiator sandals from AMI Clubwear into the  mix!

What do you think of retro style: yay or nay?

  1. I love how these pieces compliments each other. It's not too hard on the eyes and what I could definitely see myself wearing. Good job!

  2. Such a fun printed dress, I like the bright colours. The grey cardi dresses it down nicely and your pastel bag is a lovely combination with it.

  17. I'm totally in love with Kate Spade. I wanted to get a bag like yours and pink is my favourite colour but I ended up getting a black one because I was worried it would get dirty. I love your outfit and sunnies too, you look fab!
