I am always being asked “why should I wear vintage”?

So here are just a few good reasons to buy “good quality” vintage clothing over “new” clothing:

Individuality: Why wear something that someone else might be wearing? You won’t see most of these items ever again, so no chance of turning up at a special occasion in the same frock as the host!

But remember, if you love something, do not hesitate –… every piece is unique, and if you don’t snap it up there and then, it could be gone when you go back for it (oh, the injustice of it all)!

Indulgence and nostalgia: Create some nostalgia for yesteryear, turn some heads, get a unique vintage look right out of the
movies, create conversation and be seen! You can indulge yourself, be Rita Hayworth or Doris Day one minute, Betty Page the next, and Twiggy or Jean Shrimpton at the weekend!

As an investment: As vintage clothing becomes more collectable, rare and popular, the prices rise, so vintage can be a great investment for the future. For example, a good quality 1950’s cotton dress sold for around €50 – €60 five years ago would fetch around €90 – €100 today – quite an increase and a good incentive to look after your vintage purchases.

It’s eco-friendly: Who can argue with that! Recycling and re-using vintage clothing means you are not only doing your bit to help the earth by discouraging the production of more throw-away fashion, but you are also getting a much better quality, unique and individual product at a better price.

Superior Quality: The high street will try to imitate, but you can’t beat original vintage – the quality is much better than most high street items produced today, plus many of today’s designs lack the originality and attention to detail which give a vintage garment it’s charm.

It’s collectable: You can indulge your passion for vintage and collect from any designer, style or era. Perhaps for you it will be vintage jewellery, or maybe you love 50’s swing dresses, sixties Dollyrocker designs, or forties fitted fashion. Whatever makes your heart beat that little bit faster, the rush that comes with finding that perfect addition to your collection is unbeatable!

Celebrities love it! Celebrity vintage fans include Kate Moss, Chloe Sevigny, Peaches Geldof, Agyness Deyn, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller to name a very few!

Wear good quality vintage and stand out from the crowd, you will be asked again and again “where did you get your dress, I love it”?

And the best part? You can tell them where you bought it, because they won’t be able to copy yours, as it is a “one of a kind vintage find”!!

What’s not to love?!!
