"I really need to start buying more vintage", That's what I said in my latest blog post and as you can see, I've done just that. I'm now making a conscious effort to explore this new found world.

In today's post I'm sharing another shirt I found from COW Vintage, my local secondhand store in Manchester's Northern Quarter. This is the second killer shirt I've found in three weeks, which is pretty good odd's don't you think?

It's a black and white pattern that I originally thought was zebra print, which you guessed it, obviously first attracted my eye! When I got a little closer, it turned out to be more of a geometric design rather than animal print, which I still think is very cool and something I wanted to try out. The shirt has a long darted collar that screams the 70's, huge elongated cuffs which are longing to be turned inside out and folded up, which of course is exactly how I styled it.

The shape of this piece is so well fitted, it feels like it's been tailored to me. I'm also a huge fan of an unbuttoned shirt, and with this ones retro feel it's almost begging to be worn with a few top buttons missing. I finished off the look by wearing what could be vintage shades (stolen from the other half) to complete this 70's  rock 'n' roll outfit.

I'm heading across to America with my family next Sunday which is exciting, so I've started adding things to my packing list which I hope to share with you next week. 

Since I have plans to wear this shirt in America, I decided to wear it in Manchester, and style it ready for my holiday to see if it could be worn in a warmer climate. Admittedly I haven't shown you every detail this shirt has, I've toned it down to fit in with the windy surroundings of the Northern Quarter, with a black denim jacket and the shirt tucked in. But my plans to wear this shirt on holiday are a lot different, so watch this space.
