Thrift Inspiration......Doing it Oscar de la Renta style!

Hi everyone! It was announced lat week that Olivia Palermo is doing a collection with Oscar de la Renta for The Outnet. I was particularly excited to see the use of colours and vibrant florals in the collection, a traditional trademark of Oscar de la Renta and an exciting celebration of his sixty year anniversary.
This new collection features a lot of 50s inspired dresses and silk separates encompassing bright bold watercolour patterns and precision detailing with a nod to the Oscar de la Renta timeless signature styling. The collection starts at £245 with a range of 24 different pieces:
 
 


 
With this collection in mind I knew I had to show my gorgeous thrifted vintage Oscar de la Renta summer kimono jacket that I acquired from the Salvation Army charity shop nearly 4 years ago-note the trademark vibrant florals which is what drew me to it immediately in the first place!

 
I wear this in summer over a cami type top and with denim skinny jeans or cut offs- a perfect lounging piece that adds a touch of style and colour for easy summer dressing.
 
Wishing you all a really good week ahead!

I'm old enough to have worn some of those prints the first time around :)
I still like them, but it would take some getting used to to wear them again.

Your blouse is beautiful - the colors must look wonderful on you.

Oscar is an amazing designer, feminine and so timeless.
My mom and I meet him in the late 70's or early early when he was promoting his perfume in Puerto Rico. He was so charming!
