How to Shop Vintage You’ll Really Wear

I loooooooove vintage, but I find I don’t wear it as much as I think I do—especially in day-to-day life. I do a lot better when we’re on vacation, or we have a special event like Easter or Laura’s yearly Mad Men party.

Today, I thought it would be fun to share the vintage pieces I get the most use out of! I love how they add so much personality to my closet. My favorite thing about vintage is how unique it is. Especially in a day and age when bloggers shop at a lot of the same places, it helps to make my closet feel unique and special.

Scarves – My number one vintage collection is scarves. I collect Vera Neumann scarves in every color. There are so many pretty colors and patterns to collect. I usually find them on Etsy.

Jewelry – Gold jewelry is another fun collection. Anytime we go to a flea market, I head straight for the jewelry case. I love finding vintage charms that I can add to chains I already have.

Denim – Denim is so fun to collect. I love denim from the ’70s and ’90s—especially vintage Levi’s and skirts.

Dresses – Vintage dresses make it so easy to get dressed! I usually have to get them tailored, but it’s worth the extra $10 to have them be a flattering length and fitted at the waist.

Coats – Vintage coats and jackets are so fun. One of my most prized vintage pieces is my mom’s letter jacket and Buffalo Gals sweater from high school. I wear them every autumn, and one day I’ll pass them along to Nova and Marigold.

Note: This post is pre-scheduled. I am currently on my maternity leave with baby Marigold (!!!!!!!), so if I don’t respond to your comment, don’t worry, someone else on our team will. I am so grateful for the opportunity to take a little time to bond with our new baby. But I left a bunch of posts in the drafts for you to enjoy while I’m away. See you on the other side! xx
