Just like the crocuses cropping up in front of the office, ModCloth’s latest vintage collection, The Sweetest Spring, is in full bloom. Whether you’re a full-fledged fan of vintage, or just beginning to experiment with retro fashion, the collection is sure to inspire. While I personally can’t get enough of vintage, perhaps you’re looking for an everyday way to incorporate vintage into your wardrobe – if so, this post is for you. Read on to see three fresh takes on vintage floral fashion, as modeled by ModEmployee Elisa!

    Love the last set of photos. Has me DREAMING it was Spring/Summer. It would be so nice to just pass the days living in wedge sandals and chiffon midi skirts. 🙂
