How often do you guys wear vintage? Seeing how we're all part of the vintage blogosphere (can I call it that?) it's somewhat implied we're all avid vintage consumers. Truth be told a big chunk of my wardrobe is vintage, mostly dresses and skirts (what can I say, they just don't make them like they used to) but in day to day life the items I end up wearing are, more often than not, younger than 20 years, so to say. Don't get me wrong. I do vintage. Take the dress I wore today. The perfect wool dress. Flared skirt, a subtle print and just a hint of puffy shoulders. Plus the small details, like the perfect buttons and the tight sleeves. Not matter how much I'd look I bet I wouldn't find something as exquisite in a mass produced store brand. But in spite of that I'm such a sucker for Topshop, H&M and the rest. I end up buying their stuff. Sure, I blame it on the advertising and so on but deep down I feel I'm such a consumer. Well I've said it. What about you?
