Your grandparents wore them, so why cant you? There’s a reason that we cherish and treasure those pre-loved goodies (aka vintage).
Vintage has character and is original, you feel stylish and classy when you wear it. Plus, you know that you wont see the girl next door sporting the same thing! These points are all fabulous, but there’s another reason too…
People throw away clothes every day. Imagine how many times you’ve cleaned your closet and have thrown away piles of clothes. Well, just because you don’t like some of your clothes anymore, doesn’t mean that someone else wont treasure them now that you’re done! Its just like recycling. Other peoples old clothes become your new clothes, and the cycle goes on, which turns out to be good for the environment and good for you too! You know you’re getting something unique, one of a kind. You’re getting vintage.
So, the morale of the story is…Recycle. Wear vintage.
