"Out With the Old"

"Out With the Old"

Everybody likes summer, and everybody likes vintage clothes, if that statement is wrong then why are any of us even here? 

I am attracted to clothes that have a history, a past life, a new era.  While not everyone appreciates the vintage trend, it’s useful to understand some of the inspirations behind it.  Vintage, not to be confused with grunge (oversized sweaters and flannel shirts) brings us back a few decades further.  The term vintage usually refers to garments from or inspired by the 1920’s, although people do use it to describe anything old up through the 1980s.  These styles can be found at secondhand shops and thrift stores. 

My love affair with vintage fashion began early in my 20’s.  I would spend my Saturdays rambling through my mother’s clothes and local thrift stores and rummage sales.  I would scope the newspapers to find the local rummage and estate sales, early Saturday mornings I am out scouting.  I would find some amazing collectables to include clothes and what not’s for the house.  I would get an adrenaline rush when I find something I know I could recreate a modern look.  I remember my first find was a turquoise leather midi skirt.  Omg, I literally had an orgasmic attack.  It was like the best feeling of excitement ever.  When 2QueensVintage reached out to me wear their amazing vintage, nude jumpsuit I was ecstatic (the same feeling I got when I found my leather skirt lol).  This jumpsuit does not do any justice in the pictures.  It is the most comfortable flowy jumpsuit ever.  I promise you will turn heads as soon as you enter the room no matter the occasion.  The material is just right for any season.  You can wear as is or layer like I did in the photos. 

If you are not a vintage lover, I hope this changes your entire perspective on it because it’s like the best trend ever and will never go out of style no matter what.
