One of the struggles I have with my existing vintage collection is finding the right time to wear certain pieces. Not all vintage clothing is for everyday wear or it can sometimes feel too out of date or over the top to wear if you’re in more of a modern mood. A challenge for myself this year is to utilize some of my existing vintage collection while also incorporating trends of 2018.
New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to go over the top with your clothing. It’s the one time of year my inner Liza Minnelli can shine and I can drown myself in sequins.
I can still remember scouring racks of incredibly timeless dresses at a vintage store in Portland, Maine, hoping I’d be able to find one under $100. No matter where I travel, I always try to find the local vintage stores in the area and I hit the goldmine when I traveled to Maine a few years back.
Part of the fun of my vintage conquests always involves the hunt. There are so many treasures to find along the way. I always mix my vintage with a touch of modern or vice versa, so on this next venture I will take you to a place that has a little bit of everything – old and new.
My favorite part of October is my birthday. Every year, on Oct. 13, I take myself out for vintage shopping and quality “me time.” It’s the perfect day to reflect on the past year and to embrace growing older while doing something I love.
I’m an October baby, I live for all things fall. Naturally, Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. I am a huge advocate for finding costumes and decorations you can use year round and that can be repurposed.
When you are as obsessed with vintage shopping as I am, you can’t avoid sharing this love with everyone around you. My sister’s wedding is at the end of September and I’ve been searching my local vintage/antique stores to find something completely unique that will help her remember her special day.
