Vintage Meets New Style Workshop
Last month we convened with a group of wonderful women for our latest style workshop at Amalgamated Clothing and Dry Goods in Del Ray: Vintage Meets New. DC Style Factory stylist Jenn Barger led the discussion on how to incorporate vintage fashion into a modern wardrobe. She gave expert insider tips on what to buy, how to buy and where to buy.
Attendees enjoyed bubbly, sweets and cheese while Jenn demonstrated ways to mix and match fabulous finds from past decades. She created fun, modern looks using gorgeous pieces from Amalgamated. For example, she took a ladylike vintage jacket from the ’60s and paired with a graphic tee and boyfriend jeans. Workshop attendees also brought their own vintage “orphan garments” to get ideas on how to style them (i.e., a great silk scarf passed down from a grandmother got put with a white blazer, t-shirt and white jeans).
It was a lovely afternoon filled with great tips and lots of laughter. Special thank you to Shelly White , owner of Amalgamated, for hosting our event; The Sugar Cube in Alexandria for stuffing our goodie bags with salted caramel treasures; and Sill Life for donating a gorgeous one-of-a-kind terrarium that was given to one of our lucky workshop attendees.
