Even if the clothing fashions of yester-year don’t appeal to you, there can be no argument that the prices of vintage accessories make them attractive even to the discerning shopper. The bags, scarves, and belts that were popular in the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are still eye-catching today and many are available at vintage clothing stores for a fraction of the price you will pay for new accessories.
The cost of proper and casual attire is going up all the time and the relief that comes from something as simple as shopping for vintage clothing is welcomed by all. Women who look to accessorize in mainstream retail stores are finding luxury items such as designer bags to be out of their price range. Louis Vuitton replicas have been an adequate substitute but are now so common that there’s no point in buying one to look different.
If you’re truly looking for a way to be unique check out vintage handbags from decades past. An item that was once common will be a big hit when you sport it today in a business or social situation. They’re more affordable and you might just find a true gem from Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Mark Jacobs or Rebecca Minkoff buried in that pile of ‘80s authentic handbags.
In addition to great deals on bags, you can also find belts, scarves, and most importantly shoes, at a vintage clothing store or website. A girl can never have enough shoes and buying them retail gets expensive pretty quickly. Look for great deals on vintage shoes and you’ll have a closet full for any occasion. The party, wedding, or business meeting will be all yours when you walk in wearing Van Eli, Bebe, or Frank More heels that just aren’t available in regular retail shoe stores.
There are three basic rules to fashion and accessorizing:
1. No one has to know what you paid for it.
2. Individuality will make you the center of attention.
3. Old is not old. It’s vintage.
Keep these rules in mind when you accessorize. If you see something that appeals to your personal sense of style then wear it. Standing out in the crowd is not always a bad thing and the colors of past decades tend to be brighter and make more of a statement than much of what is on the clothing racks today. Shop for vintage clothing and accessories and you can create a whole new look for yourself.
