    Thrift Stores

    Are amazing. They donate a lot to the needy, and you know you are supporting a great cause! (And you can find amazing stuff there for great prices.)

    Oh How I Love Vintage

    I love finding the perfect vintage piece after a cup of coffee.   My favorites finds are usually shirts, hats and ties.  There's nothing like a soft t-shirt that has been around for years and years.  Whenever I moved into the house I rent I found 8 bags...

    I seem to like dressing in Vintage clothing

    that has a flair to it. I like Black Seamed nylons and a Garterbelt or Corset with High Heels on. A flowing dress or a tighter more sexier dress. I love to wear makeup ad to apply thick red lipstick on ad paint my nails.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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!

    Oh the Rapture!

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    I was out and about today. ostensibly to pick up a few  things for my grandson and godson. (both infants).  But, as long as I was there it doesn't hurt to wander through the ladies racks on the way to the back, now does it? So my quick little pass through the shop...

    We have this small little thrift store in our town. Castaways. Occasionally they'll have amazing clothes to pick from for under 50 cents a piece. I've attempted at making my own clothes and failed miserably. Hopefully I'll be able to learn in the near future. But i still...

    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.

    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.

    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. ...

    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...

    Stockings and Garters

    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.

    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...
