Maeberry Vintage Preview!

Last night I was able to attend a sneak peak of Maeberry Vintage’s brand new store! It was to die for. I loved the styling and   the clothes! If you love vintage, look no further! Nothing is overpriced and the best part is that no one else will have the same outfit as you! The grand opening is on Monday, September 16th. There will be treats, discounts, and a band, so make sure to come by and check out the store!

Here are some of the cute things I tried on during the preview! I can’t get over how cute they have decorated the store!IMG_1111IMG_11182013-09-14_0006IMG_1103IMG_1122IMG_1119

Look at this amazing dress my friend, Jalynn from The Red Closet Diary, bought. It reminds me of a flower child. Love it.IMG_1120IMG_1115

I’m also in love with these gorgeous gloves.IMG_1121IMG_11062013-09-14_0011coatIMG_1107image

And now…for some more realistic (as was the above style) swimwear!
This is how I would wear this style. If I find a good one piece I think I may buy one this year too. But I purchased this suit from J.Crew earlier this year. It has high waisted bottoms and and bunching which I think is so cute. Can’t wait for the sun to show it’s face!
J.Crew Tuille Underwire Top $60 and Tuille Retro Hipster $56 – jcrew.com

I also purchases this fun little retro suit for a steal at Forever 21…for get this…$8.90 a piece! And yes, I got a hat to go with it for $12.90. I thought it was worth it 🙂

How do you feel about pinup/retro suits?
