The how to: Make Vintage Modern

Ive developed a Store surrounding the idea of making vintage modern.
Most modern designers constantly mimic vintage patterns, textures, and concepts for their current lines. Why buy the ripped off version, when you could buy the original?

Storey Threads Vintage ankle pants $68

French connection Sequin Shorts $328
 Storey Threads 80s Sequin Shorts $48

Who wants to show up to an event wearing the same thing as someone else. Really, What girl does? No one!  And its even worse when you buy something, and then a week later you see you're friend  wearing the exact same piece. Go vintage, and you can stand out in a crowd, and still be current and trendy!
How do I make vintage modern, you might ask?
There are lots of different ways, and that's the fun part. Inventing your own style. I have freinds who wear only designer, but will rock a vintage tote or dress for a party. And on any given day, you'll see me boppin around town in a vintage dress or top or pants, but they are typically paired with a current piece. A nice pair of jeans, a striped top, and who doesn't want to wear some Jeffrey Cambells with almost any outfit, vintage or not?!

  1. I love how vintage pieces always seem to come back into style. I'm such a vintage lover, I so appreciate the craftsmanship and there are always ways to make them feel new again!
