Find vintage for free!

10 Nov

You may be surprised what great stuff you can find from your mom, specifically what she used to wear when she was your age!  I realized I can find some great vintage pieces from my mom, like my favorite pair of brown boots that used to be hers. I also got some cool belts. My mom still wears a pretty gold necklace that she has had since she was my age.

Vintage clothes and accessories can be very fashionable, and it is great when you can find some for free from a relative!

    Cute blog, some how I haven’t responded to yours yet. I wear my mom’s clothes all the time! Two years ago, my steeple chase dress was the same dress my mom wore at her engagement party.

    A lot of my friends shop at Goodwill for vintage clothing-but I always get so overwhelmed when I walk in that store! I would love to find some vintage clothing stores around here though.

      Yeah my friend said she shops at Goodwill all the time! I was surprised at first, but I guess I need to go check it out!

    I’ve worn some of my mom’s clothing articles before, and people always complimented me on how retro they looked! I think it’s a fabulous idea to give new life to something otherwise collecting dust in the attic. Kudos for your ingenuity!

      Thanks! People would be surprised what they could find by rummaging through their parents’ old stuff!

    My mom and I love to share clothes. If I ever needed something new in my wardrobe, I would just go to her closet and vise versa. I’ve missed having an extra closet of clothes to choose from here at school. Vintage speaking, I inherited some really great jewelry pieces from my great-aunt. I get a lot of compliments about them!
