Vintage Value

I personally love vintage clothing.  One reason is because it is so unique and one of a kind; however, the prices at Vintage stores are incredibly harsh on the wallet.  But Surprise!  There are other places that have Vintage: consignment stores (like Designer Renaissance), craft and art fairs, flea markets, and I’ve also had luck finding vintage things at Goodwill (and still in very good shape).  Once you discover your Vintage supplier and begin the collection, the next step is styling it.

 

This look accentuates the classic style of this vintage dress.  It is so cute for going out to brunch, getting lunch with the girls, going to church, or even going on a date!

The French Shoppe (raincoat): $45.00; Vicky Vaughn(dress): $80.00; Necklace: $20.00

and of course, keep it sweet by pairing it with vintage inspired nude heels like these Etienne Aigner sling backs for $24.00

This look does the total opposite.  I paired the extremely feminine vintage blouse with super hip jeans to give it more edge.

Jeans (Gstar): $80.00; Vintage top: $16.00; Banana Republic Belt: $16.00;

C & C California (vest): $20.00; Both necklaces: $20.00

A lot of vintage things can be styled rather simply if they have an intricate design like this one.  I made sure this look was all about showing off the adorable embroidery on the blouse.

Blouse: $16.00; Banana Republic (skirt): $24.00; Belt: $16.00; Necklace: $20.00

Good luck on finding your Vintage Treasures!

Love,

The Girls at Designer Renaissance
