So sorry for the lack of posting, I have been on holidays and just got back.. But when I was away, a Vintage store Geelong Vintage Market was down the road from my hotel and since then was inspired to do a how to check list kinda post for you all: I purely love vintage as 99% of the time, the quality is much better. Whether it be jewls, bags, shoes or clothing. They just don’t make it like they use to.
Now, if you checked my Instagram: Follow me I had a good few options which had made the decision hard than ever. I didn’t have much money on me which had made it harder.
Anyway thought i’d give you some tips on how I bought my goodies, these have helped me: (Note: these tips help generally when shopping, not just for vintage)
1) What’s your favourite Era of vintage? Check out the store first to get a good feel what they sell. My favourite era is from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. .
2) Are you checking out something in particular? I.e bag, jewls, clothes etc – make sure you know what you want to buy as this will make your decision making alot easier.
3) Know what works for you.
4) The Hype of getting vintage can be overwhelming, so I’d recommend getting somethng you can honestly wear over and over again. Try finding your own classic. Like for me, I am not a fan of the gold these days but somehow vintage gold looks so much better quality.
Now, the options at the Geelong Vintage market were endless and I could’ve been real bad and bought the whole store but lucky for me, I have self control and was able to walk away with some good finds.
Hopefully everyone has had a beautiful start to 2017.
P.s This is 1 of the looks I’ve styled as of apart of the launch of my new Category named “My classics”. This category is dedicated to Classic pieces in your wardrobe that every fashionista needs.. Anyway this is look 1, so stay tuned for the rest <3.
