Sometimes when I tell people what I do for a living – “I sell vintage and vintage inspired fashion online” – I get a mixed reaction.
“So… you sell used clothing? Something that someone else has worn before?”
As if it’s a bad thing. For me, part of the appeal of vintage is the history. I like imagining the stylish working woman of the ’40s who wore that 2 piece suit or the disco diva in the ’70s who bought that maxi dress for a night out.
One of my favorite necklaces is a vintage locket that I found at a Goodwill for a few dollars. Besides being incredibly beautiful and ornate, it still has pictures of the previous owner’s kids (or maybe grandkids) in it and, for me at least, it really adds charm.
So now I want to know… why do you wear vintage?
