What I love so much about vintage is how unique each piece is and knowing there is an unknown story behind it. Who owned this originally? Why did they buy it and why did they give rid of it? What were they feeling the first time they wore it? It's like living pieces of someone's personal history.
I have been seeing silk scarves popping up on a lot of stylish ladies and really love the look for the warm months ahead. Knotted in a bow, tied into a ponytail, worn around the neck. I already had a few scarves that I had either stolen from my mom or bought at a vintage shop, but I wanted to up my collection for the summer ahead. This seemed like a perfect vintage hunt, since many of the new scarves were going for $30 and beyond.
In the spirit of vintage, I wore this literal old-school sweatshirt that was actually my dad's in college when we went to the store and out for happy hour on Friday. It has completely shrank, has tears, rips and a stain or two. But needless to say, I love the classic collegiate vibe and knowing my Dad wore it back in his younger days make it that much cooler. My vintage hunt was a success - I got 4 silk scarves, all for $5 a piece! I also got a green floral dress with pleats and two bright cotton printed skirts. All I pieces I plan to re-work into new looks. I definitely plan to share photos as they are completed!
