I love wearing these sort of clothes where there is all this extra material. There are arm holes and maybe leg holes, some place for the neck, tons of drapey material … and you just wing it.
I especially like that you end up with a new permeation of it every time you get dressed. It can go from a dress to pants to a scarf even, if you are really pressed for time. It is really cool how that all comes together. I would, however, like to caution you that some things can really not translate as well as you think they can. Vintage can be a knife's blade in fashion. A model can strut down a faded dress with a torn sweater down the runway and it is really cool. Even wearing a table cloth for a fashion magazine, if there are enough cabbage roses and gauze, can look incredible. Try wearing a tea towel your great grandma crocheted as a top to school and even you admit it was not that fashionable by the time you hit the 6 month of your detention served sitting with the minister as he reads you the Bible, and talks to you about being a precious rose and how you only blossom and share your sweet perfume and your two special buds with your husband on your wedding night.
