A whole vintage outfit is something I regularly find myself in. I don’t have a whole figure mirror, so usually I notice it when I’ve left my apartment. “Wow – I’m all vintage today” I often think to myself. I like to daydream about what my clothes might have seen when they lived in the U.S in their earlier life. Most of my vintage comes from the U.S – if you are wondering why I’m so terribly specific. Both of my jackets are vintage from secondLove in Bergen, and my dress is purchased on Etsy.
Want to go all vintage? I think it comes natural to you if you’re into it. See my vintage 70s turtleneck post for more inspiration on full vintage looks. Many pin-up style rockabilly ladies even buy vintage underwear. A dress fitted to a bullet bra ideal can be quite a challenge to fill with a modern one. It’s fun to evaluate what you are wearing with all sorts of clothes. Think of when you bought that specific garment, what it ment to you at the tome – who told you how nice you looked in it and so on.
This kind of thinking stops over-purchase and mindless throw-aways in my opinion. Connect with your clothes! An insurance ad inspired me to give a due diligence to my wardrobe. They’d listed all the typical clothes and gadgets a girl has, and how much value they total. I realised that we all own quite a bit now don’t we? My DVF suit still smells of New York and that godforsaken Woodbury Commons outlet to me! Clothes are memories and need to be treasured.
