Vintage Valentino

Valentino vintage silk blouse (similar)
Zara pumps

I can’t believe I found this vintage Valentino silk blouse in perfect condition, only to spill coffee on it the first day I wear it. Like, they kept it mint for decades and I manage to ruin it in 30 minutes.. classic. Luckily I think I got the stain out, can’t see it in the photos. It’s so whimsical and feminine, I’m going to have to wear it with like a leather skirt next time to toughen it up a little.

    Love this outfit! I would love to see you pair it with a leather skirt — it'll look good! (And you definitely did a good job getting the stain out, I definitely didn't notice it!)

    wow, i loveeeeee this look Carolyn!!!!! You look soo glamorous!!! I love the detailing of the ruffles and the back with the button down effect.

    Hahahha…i had to laugh when you wrote about the part where you spilled coffee on it in 30 mins, classic indeed!

    This look is just perfect. Love the ruffles with the wide-leg. Glad you were able to get the stain out. That's totally the reason I own very few expensive things. The bag is gorgeous!
