Wearable Vintage

One of the things I always strive for when buying vintage clothing is if they are wearable or not. I don't just mean if they are in good condition (which is also a must) but if the clothes speak to modern sensibilities: on trend, easy to clean, and effortless to wear. I don't want these clothes to be plain or boring though; vintage clothes are off beat and fun and are for someone who likes to experiment with different looks. I also love when vintage clothes mix with modern pieces, it gives your outfit even more character.

I also love that vintage clothing is a form of reusing and recycling.  

Here are some photos of clothes that are in the shop right now:

This dress is easy to wear and looks great on. Pair with a jean jacket, structured blazer, or cropped vest. This dress in now in my Etsy shop too. 




I just adore this jean skirt with flowers at each side. I think it would look equally nice with tights and a sweater, as with flip flops and T-shirt. This skirt is in the store and also on Etsy




I think this dress is perfect for work. It's a bit understated, but certainly has a fun vintage style about it. This dress is also currently in my Etsy shop




I just love this little sweater vest. It's just off-white, and it in perfect condition. This sweater is also in my Etsy shop. I love the way this piece is styled here, over a button up. 



This dress is super stylish, too. I love the tie details at the neck and arms. The colors are vivid and fun!





This dress just sold and is shipping off to California, but I wanted to include the pictures because the dress is just so darling. 




This fringe jacket is also getting a new home, this one in New Jersey. Love that fringe!!



Thank you to my models, Kim and Cassie!

  1. I LOVE the sweater vest! I also like to mix my vintage clothes with modern items. Something about wearing a vintage leather jacket with my comfy jeans just makes me happy!
