In the past several years, going in back in time to find our most fashionable look has become a mainstream phenomenon. Shopping at second hand stores, vintage clothing shops, and used clothing stores, once solely the shopping domain for the poor, has now become trendy and practical, as well as eco-friendly. Not only that, but making new clothes out of existing clothing is considered to be chic and artsy.
With the global economy sluggish, and people looking for ways to save money, and still be fashionable and eco-friendly, this fashion trend is only going to continue to grow.
Yep, you got it. :) It is all relative though. What we consider from our pasts, our kids will see as vintage. :(
This is so helpful. Many times I've wondered what the definition of vintage. I hear people speak of "vintage 80s." Technically, that is not old enough, right?
