Vintage Fashion Finds

 

I adore vintage fashion as it has the power to take you to another time, another era. You can transport to a moment in an Audrey Hepburn film in the 60s, give you the feeling of freedom of the 70s or maybe you will be transformed into a 90s cool girl. Each piece has a story.

I’ve decided to dedicate this post to my vintage fashion finds, in the hope to inspire others to become enchanted by preloved garments. My favourite pieces are listed below…

Outwear:

What: White Alpaca Coat

Where: Vestiaire Collective, Paris

How to wear: Perfection for snowy winter days

Story: This was my first purchase on Vestiaire Collective, so I wanted to make sure to choose a timeless piece that I can wear forever

What: Electric blue mini skirt

Where: Bond Street Vintage

How to wear: With a basic top and my 60s mod style game on!

Story: Fashion can easily be repurposed to save energy and excess textile production. When I first bought this skirt, it had mismatched buttons with a few missing so I decided to upcycle it with these elegant pearl buttons
