Do you ladies struggle with the fast fashion trap? Feeling like you constantly need to update your wardrobe? I talked a little bit about this in my stories just now. Truthfully, I hardly ever buy modern fashion any more, so their marketing campaigns don’t tempt me. Sometimes I will swipe something “new” that was headed to the shop, but then I pull something from my collection to pass on. Otherwise I am happy and satisfied with my personal collection of vintage that I’ve acquired over the years. .
I really love this about vintage clothing. Each piece holds real value that doesn’t diminish as long as we take care of it. While it may seem expensive to invest in a $150 vintage dress, vs a $40 fast fashion one, the quality, timelessness, and detail means the vintage dress is likely to continue to inspire you beyond just a few wears. Many of my favorite items have been in my possession for 4 or 5 years and I still wear them, and I still get compliments. .
That’s because the vintage items we are attracted to today have stood the test of time. They are were beautiful then, beautiful now, and will be beautiful for years to come.
