    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Thrift Stores

    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...

    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. ...

    When I was younger, I always dressed nicely

    for school. Khakis and a button-down shirt were the norm. However, in seventh grade, I had sort of come out of my shell, I was maturing and becoming more aware of the world around me. So I started dressing in more casual clothes: jeans, T-shirts, sneakers, sweatshirts, American...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
