One Pair of Pants, Two Outfits

January 13, 2018

I’m still obsessing over the 1970s Beetlejuice-style palazzo pants I snagged from Dear Golden last April. As a vintage seller myself, I always try to consciously support other vintage and re-sale shops, and Dear Golden is one of my favorites. I am constantly finding new treasures that pair with these awesome pants to make new outfits. This streamlines packing for trips, as incorporating only a few extra garments offers up several different ensembles for packing light.

The hat was a recent gift from my brother-in-law on Christmas, and I am enamored with this true treasure of a Victorian beaver fur top hat in mint condition, especially since it only had one other previous owner and was well-cared for. It also fits my head oh-so-perfect and makes any outfit dapper. I’m also wearing another recent treasure I can’t get over, purchased last year for one of my aerial acts in a vintage circus-themed show, and found from another Etsy vintage seller. This very Versace-inspired 1980s Lillie Rubin leotard has the classic 80s/early 90s high French-cut tong that makes you look like you have legs-for-days. I have short, muscular legs and a long torso, and love the French-cut… which is also why I love my high-waist palazzo pants with platforms to make me appear taller and leaner than my athletic-build truly is.
