Dedication + Eye Is How To Find The Best In Vintage Fashion

For me the best aspect I love about buying vintage is its story. Who owned this before? how many people wore it? and what was their life like when they wore it? I find it fascinating that pieces carry their own journey and history. As a dedicated Vintage lover I have a few rules of thumb. I don’t just like any vintage, I gravitate to investments pieces such as high-end designers, but also know to look out for the no-name special ones. How do I do this? Through dedication, consistency, and a trained eye. I look at an item and size up its uniqueness, and would it compliment me in my life?

1. Dedication – You can’t go through half of the racks, you have to commit, and go through them all.

2. Consistency – On a regular basis, I rotate visiting my favorite stores. A lot of the good finds are about timing as it just came in.

3. Training your eye – I do not focus on trends and fashion, I focus on me! Does it fit my body shape? and would it ADD VALUE to my collection? Not just be another thing on a coat-hanger.
