I love love love vintage clothing. I've always wanted to start a little vintage clothing etsy shop. Having a financial obligation to look through thrift store racks sounds like the life for me:)
Veronica of Some Like It Vintage is living that life. Her online store is PACKED with hundreds of vintage items from the past few decades. All deliciously vintage.
She is offering a $50 Gift Card to her store to one lucky Grosgrain winner.
One of my favorites from her site was this retro bronze satin gown.
Unlike other Vintage Shops, their garments are re-designed and re-constructed to extend them a second life. Reconstruction involves the re-working of a vintage garment (that was otherwise not wearable) to make it once again wearable. Putting an urban and modern feel to a vintage garment while maintaining its history is another way to reduce waste.
Vintage clothing by default, is eco-friendly. Vintage is not new, but it is used clothing. Some Like it Vintage, is committed to our environment by stressing the importance of recycling and using little or no energy resources. Bio-degradable products are also used in their cleaning processes.
Their items are carefully chosen to incorporate function, practicality, wearability -- and of course high style. Says Veronica, "The quality of vintage clothing often surpasses anything made today and not only is it environmentally friendly, it is a fun and unique way to shop!"
