Vintage clothing is a lot like an ex. Worn in, full of holes, and always easy to go back to. But eventually it’s better off left alone.
SF-based designer Michele Janezic brings you the best of both worlds with her new boho-inspired spring/summer collection: They’re like oldies but goodies — without the flea market snags or stains.
Soak up the compliments in eye-catching English floral silk cotton. The empire draping on the sleeveless Christina cuts an effortlessly elegant figure. Worn loose, the Cathleen dress (printed or in solid ivory) is ideal for playing in strawberry fields. Belt it for more business-like decorum. Flirt away in the short linen denim Agnes jumper.
Easy-to-wear tops like the scoop-neck Katie look snazzy with cropped jeans. And the Christen top is roomy but still shows off the goods tastefully.
Just try to resist showing them to Mr. Been There Done That.
