Let's give vintage another chance - after all, I do have some less demanding shirts. This one was discrete enough. I liked the overall effect & I got particularily excited about how well it looked with the brown pants (I am wearing tall brown leather boots that will be almost invisible though, covered by long pants), but then...booom, I remembered that I specially bought a nice little black purse and that would look wrong with the brown pants.
So off they went - both the pants and the vintage shirt. One moment I thought I was almost there, and then...I had to carry on with my search!
