Is Vintage Right For You?

My Grandma's Dress

In the past, I have never really seen my style as one that can pull off vintage pieces. I love the look on other people, but I felt like I never found pieces that were “me”. My whole perspective changed however when my grandma gave me a dress she had custom made from 1953. The second I put it on I felt like I was going back in time. By wearing this dress I finally realized what makes vintage clothing so exciting: when you find a piece you connect with, you are able to take something with a history and keep it alive by wearing it your way.

In what ways do you incorporate vintage clothing into your wardrobe?
