{VINTAGE STYLE: black, brown & gold}

I’m very excited to bring you the first of many creative photo & style posts that I worked on with the talented Maya Visnyei. Maya and I met back in May when my loft was photographed for Covet Garden (pre-order here for November delivery). I can’t tell you how happy I was when she reached out recently and asked if I wanted to collaborate on some creative projects. As a blogger I’m kinda a one-woman-show doing everything from art direction, designing, DIY’s, cooking, writing, and 99% of the time also taking all my own photos. Being able to work with a professional is amazing because obviously she knows what she’s doing and I’m able to express my ideas with so much more quality for y’all to enjoy.

This was a style shot we did pulling from my personal vintage fashion collection. Since fall is in the air, I thought we would do an artistic style post showcasing a brown, black & gold palette. 

Although my closet is proof of how much I love colour, one exception is how much I love the combo of mixing brown leather with black and pops of gold. It’s such a classic combo that you can wear to a formal event, a night out with friends, an afternoon shopping or even to work. The black background really makes your vintage brown piece stand out. And of course you can always add some colour with a great silk scarf or some colourful lips/nails.  

Are you loving it?! Do you want to fill your closet with some beautiful vintage style? Well you’re in luck if you live in Toronto because much of what you see in this shot will be for sale this coming Sunday at the Leslieville Flea. I’ll be there for the first time trying to purge some of my vintage goods to make room in my closet & loft. If you’re not in the Toronto area, you can get this look with a few mouse clicks on Etsy. Here’s a collection of great black, brown & gold finds. 

BONUS: as a special bonus, if you’re in love with that beautiful silk scarf from The Birdcage Vintage use promo code TAKE10 to receive 10% off exclusively for The Sweet Escape readers. Score!
