hiding under a massive sun hat soaking up the sun on the beach the lovely Corey of Call Me Brazen Vintage graciously agreed to guest post and I love that she got political!
It’s no secret that it’s an election year. Everywhere you turn political ads and debates have begun to saturate the airwaves. Lately, I’ve been attending a lot of municipal meetings (which are filmed) and writing about them for a local paper. All of these factors combined really have me thinking about what to wear to these events and furthermore, what to wear to the polls in November. I know you’re thinking, “um..that’s still four months away.”. True, but you think Jackie O. waited till the last minute to figure out what she was going to wear? You shouldn’t either.
Let’s face it: the power suit is dead, which helps make room for much better and more flattering alternatives that don’t involve shoulder pads.

As you stride into the voting booth, you’ll be armed not only with confidence in your candidate choices, but also in your striking ensemble. Now it’s time to toss that stylish trench over your arm and traverse to your favorite local spot to await the results with your friends and vino.
Cat-eye Sunglasses: Goodwill, 60s Mod Floral Dress: The Clothing Line, Cobalt Blue Ocean Belt: The Vintage Getup, Mustard Heels: TargetI was lucky enough to spend some time talking vintage, thrifting, and career path shifts with Corey of Call Me Brazen Vintage last week. It’s always wonderful to connect with people who are tirelessly pursuing their passion and Corey definitely falls into that category. Her passion for vintage can be seen in her personal style as well as in her wonderfully curated etsy shop, Call Me Brazen Vintage.
I was able to talk Corey into posing for few photos at Perkins Pier and the blue hues in her mod dress and belt were perfect against the bustling Burlington waterfront. It wasn’t until Corey sent me her outfit details that I realized the belt and dress weren’t originally a set. The colors and print of the dress and belt work so well together it seemed like they would have been a pair from the start and both are accented beautifully by Corey’s mustard yellow heels.
While the sassy blue frock Corey is wearing above is from her personal collection, Call Me Brazen is stocked with everything from vintage clutches to printed wrap dresses, and one particular pair of high waisted baby blue pants that I’ve been debating buying for weeks. Make sure to check out everything that Call Me Brazen has to offer and keep checking back as Corey is constantly updating her wares.
