    So Beautiful

    I know they are not exactly go to work clothes but here are some I like and would wear. I just love these vintage 50's and 60's dress. So wonderful and delightful. Maybe sometime we'll check out the 70's and 80's.

    My Kind of Fashion

    I use to be real insecure about my body. But I've learn to dress. You don't need a perfect body to have a perfect look, that's why I love vintage fashion. It does good for my body. I like to wear waist high clothing cause it gives me a figure and hold everything in place. ...

    Value Village And Second Hand

    I love vintage clothes from the 40s-60s, I often find beautiful gems at value village (even brand name clothes and accessories) and second hand stores that often have deals such as "the entire store for 10$" and I always find something I like!

    Stockings and Garters

    I absolutely loathe wearing pantyhose. But finding stockings can be a chore at times. luckily for me I have found some, that dont' cost and arm and (fortunately) a leg. So... garters, or garterbelts and sheer stockings for me. The lacy thigh tops are nice, but still like garters...

    Is That Your Grandma's Coat?

    Vintage clothes rock! You will never see anyone else wearing your outfit, and it is always one of a kind. My grandma gave me a gorgeous floor-length floral dress, and every time I wear it, I get so many compliments. People are surprised to hear that this very dress was worn by my...

    My First 1960's Chiffon Peignoir Set

    I am a sissy from the time I was very young, but I was very careful to hide it. For many years I was married, but always terrified of telling my wife that I was a cross-dresser and afraid that she would not understand and leave me. She recently passed away and I will be forever...

    There's a shop in Nashville,

    Tennessee that sells nothing but vintage clothing. All the clothing is so beautiful, I almost bought me a dress but I had to save my money. Hopefully, I return there and buy some outfits. The 1950's style is so beautiful but so innocent. It's my favorite era of all times.

    3rd Hand?

    I accumulated and wore quite a lot of "vintage" stuff in my early 20s, mostly from charity shops but also bits aquired through family. I had a field day when I did a 1/2 day a week voluntary work in a charity shop! I still have quite a lot of the stuff...

    I Love Vintage Clothes And In The 1940’s And 1950’s.

    But I am. It just seems right to me. I love vintage clothes and in the 1940’s and 1950’s, women never wore pants, so I stopped wearing them, too. I always get compliments on how classy I look, I always feel pretty and feminine and like an old fashioned lady, and I like that a...

    Fit And Flare Dresses

    I acquired my Nans sewing patterns from the fifties after she died and have quite a few patterns for the fit and flare dresses that were so popular then.  I've made a couple of these dresses for myself and then one day, also had the brain wave of making a matching apron and a...

    Oh How I Love Vintage

    Guess I'm Late

    I guess my fashion sense, or at least how want to be seen is a little behind the times. I never got into the mini, (had them just not a favorite). Never really liked the 70's (eewww). and we'll skip the power suit 80's. I always wanted the circle skirts, and twinsets, the ...

    The Styles of Days Gone By.

    I love vintage clothes. I have a few places that I prowl regularly. Nothing cmes close to the feeling of finding a poodle skirt and twinset. For me the styles are just much more of "who I am". writing this makes me feel like shopping.

    Ahh, Vintage Clothes!

    I have always loved vintage clothes. I do not have much of a, "set style" and I occasionally wear retro clothes and mix styles. I especially like clothing from the 40's and up. It is exciting to get dressed up and no one expects it. I have a love for many things that are old...

    Very Much

    Most of the fashion for sale in high street stores are so bland and very much mass produced with very cheap materials in comparison to the clothing that was produced 40, 50 and 60 years ago and testament to this, is the existence of Vintage Clothing Stores and how much of the...

    Would Love To Own....

    A vintage fur coat (faux fur of course). I've been looking everywhere and can't find one in my size. I used to have one years ago but I got rid of it and would give anything to get it back. Typical, although my favourite are the ones with leather cuffs and belt. They are fabulous...

    I Love Vintage Clothes.

    Current fashion is kind of "meh" to me. There's something about vintage clothing that just has this warmth and soul that I love. The 20s had some of the most beautiful dresses and for me thats the hardest to find. The old hollywood look is another one of my favorites.

    Perfect finds are just so uplifting.  I just found a new place in town that I love.  It's run by a stern Swiss woman, from Lucerne, an lovely Swiss city I have visited.  She is so adamant about her stuff being the best, and she insists that you try things...
