So, you must have realized that vintage is everywhere! It’s in your music, in your pictures, on the streets, in your house, on your clothes, on your face! It s cheap and we like it! Vintage clothes don’t cost much and can be the cause of pleasant adventures while searching for the perfect bargain!

You might wonder how realistic is it to be thinking about searching for fashion bairgains in todays world?

Nevertheless, beauty -which is in the eye of the beholder- does not cease to amaze and intrigue us to look for it, without that meaning that it should be our first and primary goal.

As we all know, with fashion’s ever -revolving door, fashion trends keep being recycled and when considering the prevalling trends of the last five years you might be wondering how you could keep up with it while maintaining your identity. Vintage style does not have a unique patern, so what you could be adviced to do is transform your style into its shabbier version.

Are you boho?Are you rock? Are you classy?Make it old! Tear your jeans after digging into your granny’s and mama’s wardrobe! Cut the sleeves of your brother’s hoodies  and your father’s denim jacket! Taper and shorten  your granny’s dress! Go for it!

Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr can be the perfect websites for you to search for the ideal look or a techique to modify a piece of clothing.

Moreover, i would advise you to start exploring your neighborhood’s second hand stores and thrift shops. Put your qualms aside and enjoy it! Cheap is not always a synonym of low quality,but even if it is, why would you care? Besides you don’t always get what you ‘ve paid for! Obviously exceptions should be made and shopping for a comfortable and qualitative pair of shoes for your ten-hour-standing job, is one of them. But for the rest… go retro and be creative!
