Incorporating Vintage into Your Wardrobe

October 3, 2015



Many people assume that dressing in vintage is full-on costuming yourself in a specific period. Sometimes that is the case and I personally do love to do that, since I’m a costume-history nerd; to me, it’s magical assembling an outfit from a different time period. However, there are those times when you just want to throw in a little vintage here-and-there, spicing up an ensemble without appearing like you belong in any specific period of time, and finding ways to make your style more unique and defined.

I’ve always been a huge fan of vintage because I adore old things. I love the quality in which things where made back in the day compared to now; most of our fashion, products, cars, household items, and food are all mass-produced and cheaply-made. I find it amazing that I can go into an antique store and find a cardigan that was hand-crafted in the USA with beautiful hand-done beadwork made from fine cashmere with matching silk lining hand-stitched to the inside, all for the same price as a cheaply-fabricated cardigan from a online store. Many people don’t realize that you can find really high quality treasures in Podunk Town antique stores. As a romantic, I also love that these handcrafted treasures have a story and a past that we get to carry on.

With out further adieu, here is how Ursala and I like to incorporate some of our favorite vintage pieces into our style, from wearing just a touch of the past, to having it be the focus of our ensemble. Hopefully it offers up a little inspiration!
