VINTAGE LEVI’S JEANS

It’s almost impossible to find Jeans that are long enough for me, especially because the new Levi’s Jeans stop at Length 34. That’s why I’m always on the hunt for Vintage Denim, since there are a lot of Length 36 around and sorry, but Jeans from the 70’/80’s just ’shape‘ a better booty.

I also like to buy them two sizes too big, for a real relaxed fit.

 

Tip: The Weekday ‚Voyage‘ Jeans have a really good Vintage vibe and are a good option for my long leg ladies.

VINTAGE LEVI’S SHORTS

Well, see above. Vintage Denim for the win.

ZARA MATCHING SET

The only thing I bought from Zara in probably a year, as I usually try to avoid fast Fashion. But this set is so versatile (worn together or separate) that I wore parts of it almost daily during our vacation.

WOLF & WHISTLE SHORTS

The workout wear brand of my choice at the moment, since they discovered that sports clothes don’t have to be black all the time. Workout clothes with a retro 70’s vibe, more of it please.

T O P S & T - S H I R T S

TANK TOPS

My vacation outfits are really casual, so I always pack a hand full of Tank Tops. I get my basic ones from Weekday or Brandy Melville.

 

And like everyone else I felt in love with the Frankie Shop Shoulder Pad Top. To be fair, I’m a shoulder pad enthusiast for years now.

T-SHIRTS

I buy all my BAND & PRINT T-SHIRTS Vintage, I actually collect them.

 

I also recently discovered Everpress (thank you Instagram Ads), who work with small and independent artist and print their work on T-Shirts. All printed and produced after you ordered, so there isn’t any waste, which I think is another great approach to more sustainability in the fashion world. And how could I not get the ‚My head is up in the mountains‘ T-Shirt for our alpine trip?

 

For Basic T-Shirts I opt for the Weekday Men’s section, since I like the ones with longer sleeves and thicker material.

BLOUSES

Well more like oversized Shirts that I like to wear over Bikinis or tie them for a cropped but still oversized look. I buy them all Vintage, mostly in the Men’s section.

 

But this grey Leopard Blouse is a super old Burberry one. If you can score a silk one, it’s the perfect option for a vacation.

BIKINIS

I recently invested in some high-quality Bikinis from small swimwear brands, because I’m done with cheap Bikinis that loose their shape and color after their first salt water contact. And what can I say, I’m so impressed with the quality and especially the fit.

 

I bought one from Onne Swimwear and another one from Janthee Berlin (you can wear this top in many different ways).

 

And another great under the radar and sustainable swimwear brand is Aya Label.

SUNGLASSES

The glasses you guys (and I) are obsessed with and like every other great pair of some impressive sunglasses they are from Gucci. Trust me the one place to find the most unique eyewear. Unfortunately my tortoise pair isn’t longer available, but I found the same glasses with a black frame.

 

The one pair of sunglasses that I will wear until the end of time are the classic oval Ray Ban glasses in gold. For a long time they were my only sunglasses I owned since they work with every look.

 

I recently got into sourcing the perfect Vintage sunglasses and got some great ones on the way. This Vogue pair luckily arrived just in time for our vacation and transform every outfit you wear.

 

The YSL sunglasses are my ‚driving‘ sunglasses, since they have a really dark tint and are super comfortable. And did I mention super badass?

SCARFS

I found a big Chanel Vintage Scarf a while ago and I take it with me on every single vacation, since I use it as a hair band, belt, top, ….

 

The other one I packed (and you guys asked about) is from AVAVAV, an amazing brand from Florence Italy with a great sustainability approach. Unfortunately they don’t offer these silk scarfs anymore.

Italy Wardrobe Essentials | Lisa Fiege | Blog & Content Creation

BAGS

Whenever I bring a handbag on a vacation, I never ever use it, because it simply doesn’t fit all the sunscreen, cameras, books & Co.

Handbags are useless on vacation, it’s a rule no one taught us. So instead I invested in a Vintage Prada Nylon Backpack and it’s my best travel companion for years now (it even fits my big Polaroid + an extra pair of shoes). I already spilled so much stuff on it and I put it on the ground everywhere, but this Nylon is so durable it’s just perfect for traveling. Highly recommended.

BIRKENSTOCK SANDALS

No sandals are so cute that I would ruin my vacation with blisters on my feet. And I’m sorry, there are only a few shoes I know of that don’t ruin your feet, no matter how long you walk in them and one of them are Birkenstocks.

 

So these are always the first shoes that end up in my suitcase. I got a special Faux Fur edition of the Birkenstock Arizona model around two years ago. They aren’t available anymore, but they are releasing so many other great options.

MIISTA SANDALS

Another big shoe brand recommendations is Miista, who design and produce their shoes in Portugal and they are to most beautiful and well made shoes I got in a long time. Their boots are to die for as well.

NEW BALANCE SNEAKERS

We belong to the category ‚active vacationers‘, we love to explore. And I’m probably the only one who actually uses the New Balance 990v5 Sneakers for sporty activities and not just for streetstyle.

But I can report that they are even suitable for more demanding hikes and beyond comfortable, so yes, they are worth the money.

DRESSES

This badass brand is my go-to place for the perfect statement & high-quality silk dresses. Most of them are semi-transparent, so perfect for temperatures of 30 degrees and as a Bikini cover-up.

VINTAGE VESTS

My secret styling trick, masculine vests over everything: boho blouses, casual T-Shirts or when it’s 36 degrees just wear them over a bra. And again, you simply find the bests ones Vintage. I paid 3€ for this one.
