Love the idea of beautiful clothes and don’t want to settle for cheaply made stuff but finances are tight. So skip the cheap stuff and go “Vintage”.

You will be astonished that you can buy a beautiful, well made silk blouse for less than off the mall rack and that will open your eyes to the world of Vintage clothing. Once it is may have been a necessity because of the price but will eventually become a passion.And passion will ooze once you see the vintage pieces with elaborate details, richly beautiful fabric textures with great color and cut. You will begin to see beyond a piece of clothing draped on a hanger.

Vintage style - it's become the ultimate fashion statement.
Become a trend-setting expert at mixing the old with the new. Whether you're short of cash or just revel in the idea of finding fashion gems from the past, Vintage chic is every fashion follower's passport to unique style. Vintage is for people who want something different and not just the latest looks plucked straight from the Autumn fashion runways.Face it, anyone can walk down the street, spend some money and get a fairly fashionable look but, why settle? Try for something more. An outfit that suggests hidden depths, imagination, allure. You can renew yourself with breathtaking garments others were naïve enough to let go.

Vintage chic isn't necessarily about tapping into the catwalk's latest looks. "If you know what the trends are, you can shop specifically for those shapes, prints or colors. Take steps today for vintage in the future by holding on to existing pieces in your closet that are favorites, classics or simply hold sentimental value - you'll find that in a few years time, what goes around does indeed come around.I

The top ten classics always worth searching the Vintage Shops for...Monochrome, clean-lined trouser suits in impeccable lightweight wool, Hand stitched, slip-on shoes, Little black dress (as simple as possible, but in deluxe fabric) , White button-down blouse(in Egyptian cotton or silk), Wool dress trousers for winter, Linen blend trouser for summer, Dark wool skirt( hemmed to flatter your legs best), Cashmere sweaters, Beautifully made trench coat, and a Great, classic handbag.
