For Vintage Lovers, Tips for Shopping Vintage



• Disregard sizes all-together! Throughout the decades, sizing has changed dramatically. Just try on anything you like. If it’s too large, you can think about accessories to help it fit better, altering it yourself, or dropping it off at your dry cleaner or tailor to fix it for you.

• Check for stains and holes. If the items has any of these, skip it.

• Look for classic brands and designer labels.

• Think about washable fabrics vs what you’ll have to immediately take to the dry cleaner.

• Look for one of a kind and unique pieces that will work with your wardrobe.

• Check for missing buttons and working zippers. These are both replaceable though buttons far easier than a zipper. You can always take the item to your tailor to fix.

• Many times you find brand new items in thrift shops. Just think of all the items in your closet with the tags still on them. At thrift shops, you can really make out with a new wardrobe at a fraction of retail prices!
