Stuff We Would Kiss On the Mouf: Vintage Vogue

1970s Paganne print dress


Last Friday I staffed a large meeting at work (large being about 175 people), and wore a vintage dress from the 60s, some turquoise jewelry, and a thrifted belt. I got more compliments on what I was wearing that I have in a while, and DANG if it wasn't nice (can I get an Amen, Amy?). It's funny, because I went to Target the next day and counted a handful of dresses that I saw at the meeting. Don't get me wrong - I have a veritable BUTTLOAD of clothing from Target, and in fact that very day was dressed in head to toe Tar-jay. Still, I think from now on I'm going to search for more vintage items to add into my wardrobe. It's green to recycle or upcycle, it can be cheaper if you score a smashing frock at a thrift store as opposed to an actual vintage store (where the owner knows what they have and usually charges accordingly), and most importantly, it's FUN knowing I'm going to have something on that no one else will.

Check out some of the uh-maz-ing, bananas items on Shrimpton couture.

Shan,

Can we make a new category for all posts related to vintage clothing? I think you know how I feel about vintage and how it really makes you feel more fabulous when you wear it. You know. I know you know. Anyhoo, I propose a new category:

Vintage: Stuff We Would Kiss On The Mouf (With Tongue).

Merci,

Ames
