Loves, do you ever regret getting rid of something that doesn't feel stylish anymore, only to find 10 years later wishing you had kept it? I mean, who EVER would have thought that floral jeans would come back? I sure as hell didn't.
I love that fashion just keeps circling around and eventually it all comes back. This is one of the many reasons why I love vintage. I can browse my fashion mags and the latest trends from Urban Outfitters and then go find it myself - either at a thrift store or from another vintage seller on etsy.
I often see items in stores that look identical to something in my shop.
While looking through Bazaar yesteday, I saw this ad and loved how they styled the sweater dress (left) with booties and knee high socks. (I have yet to rock this knee high trend because knee highs do not come close to my knees because I am such a long legged lady.)
I think it looks super sexy and modern.
And then I realized that I have a super similar sweater dress in my shop!
How cute would this dress be with chocolate brown knee high socks and cute flats or booties? Seriously.
The only difference is that the sweater dress that is new costs $185; the vintage dress is $30.
Do you look for inspiration and then try to do it yourself (on the cheap)? I am still going strong with my second-hand only pledge - it makes you hunt a little more, but that's the fun part, right?
