Vivetta.

It's probably no surprise that I'm in love with Vivetta just like the rest of the blog world. From the moment I laid eyes on Vivi's fall collection I knew I would eventually try to recreate some of the looks. As insane as it was, I even considered buying some of the dresses! They were somewhere in the two hundreds and wayyyy out of my price range, but I loved everything so much that I honestly considered investing in at least one.



Thankfully I was able to come back down to reality. Rather than spending all my hard earned pennies on one pretty dress, I kept Vivetta in the back of my mind on my thrifting adventures.

Hence, today's outfit which is loosely based on a few different pieces shown above.

Imitaion is the sincerest form of flattery.

Who needs Vivetta when you've got vintage?
Yes, the collection looks amazing but I think you did an amazing job here with what you already own! Def. inspired.
