I am about to make a shocking confession. Brace yourself. Are you ready? Okay I’m just gonna blurt it out.. I’m not a fan of vintage shopping. There, I said it. It was blasphemy to your ears, wasn’t it? This skirt is one of the very few vintage purchases I’ve made in my life, and I only picked it up because I felt like I needed “vintage” experience as a fashion blogger. Davis was also there to give me an extra boost. I absolutely adore clothes from the past eras, but I can’t get past the smell of vintage stores and the thought of putting on something previously owned by a stranger. Thank God my mom was a stylish woman, otherwise I would forever be deprived of beautiful things of the past.
I must say though, after wearing this skirt a few times, I’ve gathered up a bit of courage to give this vintage thing another try. In the name of fashion, I shall prevail!! Gahhhhh Justine, I need your help.
What are your honest thoughts about vintage shopping? Perhaps you have some tips to help me appreciate this “art”?
