You see, I firmly believe that certain things never go out of style, just because they can evolve or transform into something new each season.
And the best examples I could come up with are crocheted and knitted items.
I found some great vintage crochet pieces, which are 100% wearable today!
What an amazing 1970′s dress!
Or this vintage open weave crochet tunic
Here is another comeback from the hippie era: vtg 70s hippie boho patchwork prairie calico dress
For some reason I am really into the white dresses this season, I guess that’s what happens after you get married!
Make sure to visit The Frippery Vintage Boutique, a lot of gorgeous vintage dresses on sale!
Being the DIY freak that I am I went and researched what designers included crochet items into their collection.
Check out this Sena Crochet Wrap! How amazingly simple and completely DIYable
I am loving these tops and dresses, even though they are more of a summer trend, you can TOTALLY style them for FALL!
I am still drooling over the DVF dress! It will probably take me a while to get over it.
Not that I don’t have any knitted dresses in my collection
I have a Kookai knitted black dress, but I am still looking for a perfect black slip to go with it!
Though my husband loves this dress on me without any slips
I also want to give a shout out to The Double Stitch Twins, who bring crochet to a totally different level!
They are such an inspiration and an encouragement to all of us out there, aspiring knitters and crocheters. In all it’s seriousness though, crocheting and knitting gives you an opportunity to be your own designer, or a designer period! It’s the knowledge that you are the only one who has this unique item, that keeps me, personally, going! And standing out in a crowd is what I like!
And finally – the Salvatore Ferragamo bag, which to me, is a PERFECTION
Wouldn’t you love to knit that?
For those of you who like to play it safe – use crochet to decorate the already existing pieces of your wardrobe, which need some refreshing! There are a million ideas on the internet! Here are some of them!
A tank with a crochet strap
A shirt with the crochet back
And some sexy looking shorts!
I promise to show some DIY projects similar to those above in the future!
As for me, I learned how to knit from my mom. She was always making sweaters for herself and me, back in Russia, when the times were tough! Crocheting came later, I went to an after school program to learn that! No bragging, but I was a natural.
I have recently finished an infinity scarf. Pics will be posted after it’s washed And I am currently working on something very special, and I will let you sneak a peak at it…
…but not going to tell you what it’s going to be!
Anyways, have a great weekend everyone, happy Friday!
