It never fails. You compliment someone on their clothing and when you hear them say the word vintage, there’s always that sting.
Spring is on the horizon and I’m sure everyone is aching to be in with the new and out with the old. But, why not revamp your living space while embracing the old?
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.
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.
