Gee, Vintage Never Gets Old

28 Jul

In addition to developing an appreciation for recycled music, I have also come to love recycled clothing.  Upon flipping through the pages of Baltimore’s “City Paper,” my friend and I found an ad for Debois Textiles: a warehouse of vintage clothes, fabrics, and fashion gems.

We couldn’t resist – we had to investigate the place for ourselves.  Moving from rack to rack was a true adventure.  From poofy prom dresses to flowy blouses, this place has it all.  My friend and I spent hours scouring the inventory and picking out unique pieces that we would never find in a department store.  And it doesn’t hurt that the prices are extremely college-student-friendly.

Vintage has even gone virtual!  Thanks to online stores like Etsy‘s Dirty Betty Vintage, you can order tasteful vintage pieces in a snap.  Dirty Betty is one of my personal favorites with pieces ranging from dresses to rompers.  I can’t help but love her quirky names for each item (i.e. “Dirty Betty is Staring at the Sky Babydoll“)!  Humor and remarkable taste in clothes: two amazing qualities that flow together harmoniously in this charming online shop.

So my advice for the day: add some character to your wardrobe with vintage fashion.  Go on, live a little!
