How to buy in Vintage Stores.

I used to have this mindset… “eeeeewk, how am I going to buy and then wear something that has been already been used and worn” NOOO THANK YOU!

FACT… The only vintage clothes which I consider using are things I find in my grandmother’s house, and when digging in my mom’s closet. 🙊

Difference between Vintage and Used deals.

There’s a big difference between Vintage and Used garments. Which I think, if you want to adventure once in a while in this journey you should know.

Clothes and Accesories are generally considerating Vintage. If they were manufactured 20 years ago or more.

Pre-owned –used– garments. I think doesn’t need a definition or explenation. –am I right?–

Know the style of each era, know a bit of fabrics, pay attention to details.

You can definitely find great vintage and also pre-owned clothes and accesories.

My Stylosophy Look

I was really looking to make this bag the main focus of this look.

This is not a vintage bag, it has like 5 to 6 years since it was made.

I loved it from the moment I saw it. The quality is exquisite, the colors match perfectly and it has that 50’s/60’s style I love. What you all think about this bag and look?
