Vintage Logo Trend

Logos are everywhere! We all remember logos from our favorite sporty brands like Nike and Adidas. Both women and men participate in this style trend.  This phenomenon has expanded to the fashion and luxury brands.  From the popular luxe brands like Gucci and Dior, tees and accessories, logos are showing up as part of the style lexicon.  You see logos all over Instagram and in fashion magazines and on your favorite You Tubers.  Brands are bringing back their old logos and patterns which is exciting to those who follow fashion and trends.  I will put links to some examples below! 

I have to admit, I do have some logo clothes and accessories in my closet.  I am not talking about having a logo from head to toe, but as an accent to your outfit. I love mixing logo t-shirts and accessories into my wardrobe for work, casual Fridays and weekends.  Tees and accessories with logos are easily found in-store and online or in vintage/second-hand shops.  The price difference between the luxe brands and other brands can be a cold splash of water, yet the trend lives on.  

One brand that has been very good at this trend is Gucci.  The Gucci logo is everywhere! From belts to t-shirts to handbags, Gucci has reinvented itself in its own vintage image.  The last few seasons have been full of the use of their own logo and fun images or patterns that the trend and fashion world has embraced. They have released new handbags with their vintage canvas logos and in vintage styles.  You can also find vintage and pre-loved bags, clothes and accessories on resale sites like The Real Real and Fashionphile.

One popular example is the logo tee trend. Brands from contemporary designers like Marc Jacobs as well as luxury brands like Gucci, Burberry and Balmain have t-shirts with their logos on them.  People love these tees.  I too have logo t-shirts in my wardrobe.  I mix them in with my outfits when appropriate for me.  Imagine these shirts under a blazer with jeans and your favorite leather sneakers… that is my go-to casual-smart outfit! 

Maybe you will jump into logo mania with the rest of the fashion world.  Perhaps not from head to toe, but with a few fun pieces.

What Worked & What Didn’t- 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The secret sauce of the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that it has items that can be used this summer, but also includes items for fall! The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 5 when prices will go back up to regular price. I have to say that there is so much included, you can find looks for every occasion at Nordstrom, from weekend to wedding and night out to vacation.

Here is how my ordering drama resolved itself.  So the 2 orders that I made that were cancelled within the system causing me to reorder were actually filled.  So, I ended up getting all but one pair of jeans, but I got many duplicated items. Again props to SA Elizabeth @ Valley Fair for watching over my situation like a guardian angel.  I have a thank you email set to go out to her (hello! I have manners).

So here is what I loved and if it worked for me or not:

Women’s Maggy London Ruched Waist Midi Dress 12

I loved this dress in the pictures and in person. It would have been a great option for work or a party.  Sadly, it didn’t fit me properly so I had to let it go.

Women’s Hinge Mix Print Peasant Dress, Large – Blue

I love the boho/peasant style of this! With booties or sandals in warm weather and with and cozy cardigan, tights and boots when it cools down. I ordered a size XL, but the sleeves were too long so I had to order a large. I’m hoping that will work.

Women’s Ag The Farrah Ankle Skinny Jeans 33R

For those who love AG Jeans… you must look at these.  I am new to the AG program – I got my first ever pair in May from Trunk Club.  I was excited to get my second pair to replace some older jeans that it was past time to sell/donate. OK they are a bit more than I would normally spend on denim, but my 1st pair really performed and you can save $76 before August 6.

 Women’s Halogen Lace Detail Camisole-Blue or Black Floral Large

These Halogen camis are so comfy with great lace detail and a bit of stretch.  I have worn it under a cardigan and on it’s own when outside in the heat.

 Women’s Rails Bretton Heart Print Top, Size Large – White

Another brand I am new to is Rails.  This top is the perfect shape for me at work.  The white with the fun black heart detail will work with my pencil skirts and trousers.

Women’s Rails Cara Star V-Neck Tee, Size Large – White

My other favorite from Rails is this cute tee.  I am loving stars lately and this v-neck has a subtle pattern and a great fit.

Women’s Caslon Hooded Cardigan, Size Large – Grey

This is one of the 1st items that I saw that I knew I wanted.  I originally wanted it in black, but it was sold out and I was able to get a grey one.  I am happy with this light-weight cardigan.  It has a drawstring at the waist, so you don’t have that giant sweater look, but a slim silhouette.

Women’s Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Lite Circle Cardigan M 

So I knew I had to try this sweater out because 4 of my favorite bloggers (Lux Mommy, Chase Amie, Shea Whitney &  Miss Louie) said I must.  Boy were they right! This is the softest sweater in the history of sweaters! I am serious! I got the blue one in size medium and it is truly cozy.

Women’s Vince Camuto Kochelda Over The Knee Boot, 8.5 Wide Calf

So I never thought I would like an over-the-knee boot.  My problem is my wide calf action (thanks a lot Zumba) which limits my selection significantly.  These fit me perfectly and I saved $80!  I can’t wait for the weather to cool down!

 Women’s Tory Burch Benton Ballet Flat, Size 8 M – Black

Tory Burch Flats. CLASSIC. Enough said.

Women’s Halogen Hailey Bootie 8.5 M 

Biker Chic. You might need these.

Women’s Leith Tie Front Skort

IT’S A SKORT! Navy with a hint of Lavender. I mean… it had me at skort.

  Women’s Halogen Plaid Stripe Pencil Skirt,  14- Black

I love me a good pencil skirt.  Great for work and those who know me know that I will also wear with a tee and canvas sneakers. Classic fit.

 

Items that I got that maybe sold out, but I hope they will restock:

  1. Beauty Blender blend.cleanse.carry Set
  2. Thermal Henley Top by SOCIALITE Large
  3. Women’s Halogen Ribbon Stripe Slim Jeans, Size 33 Blue
  4. Treasure and Bond Sporty Stripe Sweater Large Grey

 

So many fun items with good prices this year.  Remember,2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 5 so get moving.  You can get FREE shipping or pick up in store.

Hope this was helpful!

Sweaters!

cashmere

I am really feeling the sweaters this fall! The patterns are a great escape from the plain sweaters of autumns past. Everyone should be brave and try a sweater with a little fun woven in!
