Vintage Clothing

Buying Vintage Clothing can be a real experience for those passionate about old eras. Personally it is something that can make me very happy. I have always loved the idea of wearing something with a history rather than a high street piece that everyone can have. Don’t you think it is exciting to wonder “Who was wearing this dress before and for which occasion?”, “Did anything important happened while they were wearing it?”? This is one of the main reason why buying a vintage item can be so unique. But what do you have to look for when buying vintage? […]

In this post I’d like to talk about one of their evergreen pieces: Collectif Winifred Fishtail Skirt   As a late 30’s/40’s passionare, I usually wear dresses and skirts.

Fashion between the 40’s and the 50’s was incredible in terms of creativity, newness, bold silhouettes and prints. Glamour hit the the top and everything was about details. That’s why I find Lindy Bop’s Emma dress a beautiful reproduction of an original style of those years. As a result you can’t avoid to fell in love with it!   After been amazed by LB’s “Tiffany”, I am now infatuated with their “Emma” dress. This style features a fitted pencil style silhouette, with a tight waist and pleated detail, recalling the early 50’s bell draped shape. The bodice is tailored and […]
