Victoria's Secret Does Vintage?

I'm Always a Sucker for "Vintage-Inspired": I just received a Victoria's Secret catalog addressed to the old tenant (I love that!) and was surprised to see they are going for a new all-around look in their Fall preview collection. The concept and clothes actually caught my eye. In the past, Victoria's Secret has been where I purchase my unmentionables...and not much else. Their clothes always struck me as a bit too I'm-trying-really-hard-to-look-sexy, and that's not really my bag. This new collection is going for a Great Gatsby, Art Deco-inspired look, and some of the pieces are very feminine and lovely. The two particular heel styles below really made me smile -- turquoise satin and pumpkin orange Oxfords. The tops and dresses have interesting little details -- ruffles, layers, sequins, ombre sashes, etc. This stuff could really work for those girly moments...don't you think?


Pleated Bra Top ($88); Multi-strap platform sandal ($78); Silk dress ($118).


Silk tiered babydoll top ($58); Peep-toe oxford ($70); Merino wool embellished tunic sweater ($188).
