Musings on Vintage Remixing

One of the things I love most about vintage pieces is that they never really go out of style. I mean, they're sort of always out of style just by their nature, right? In my mind that makes them timeless. It's all in how you style the piece. 

I've never been one to go full vintage for a very era specific look (not that there's anything wrong with that), but instead I either mix decades or pair vintage pieces with modern to give them a more current feel. Mixing it up like that also allows me to wear specific vintage pieces over and over again, sometimes for years, without having them feel tired to me.

This dress for example, has been featured on my blog twice before. Once in September 2011 and again in May 2012. That's 5 solid years of wearing this dress and I'm sure there are many more to come!

Do you have any items in your closet that you endlessly remix? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
