Vintage is Totally Unique

We’ve all been faced with the dilemma of turning up to a party and wearing the exact same outfit as somebody else, right? Well vintage clothing is usually one of a kind, and you could probably bet millions of pounds that you could choose any location on the planet to walk into and nobody would be wearing the same thing. Not only that, but vintage clothing can really show off your personality!

You can also pretty much guarantee that a vintage accessory in your home is going to be one of a kind.You can find vintage style beautiful home accessories at The Other Duckling!

Vintage is Inspirational

Many fashion designers borrow their ideas from vintage pieces. A classic vintage dress will never go out of style, and famous designers know this; so they’ll often just take the pattern from it and sell it as their own! If it’s good enough for the designers…

Vintage Can Be Quality

Most fashion nowadays is made quickly and cheaply. Vintage clothing was made with a love and care that today’s garments lack! The attention to detail is amazing, and many vintage pieces were hand sewn.

Vintage Has a History

A vintage garment has already been out there and lived…it’s amazing to think about where it’s already been and who with. As for vintage home accessories, whose house did it live in? When you choose to wear and use vintage, you choose to wear and use nostalgia and history.

Celebrities Wear Vintage

Plenty of fashion forward celebrities have been known to love and embrace vintage, such as; Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss, the Olsen twins, Mischa Barton, Rachel Bilson, Katy Perry, and more! You can literally dress like a celebrity in vintage finds.

See Vintage as an Investment

There is a collectible market out there for vintage clothing, unlike new clothing that depreciates in value as soon as you rip that tag off. Why pay top dollar for something that’s going to lose it’s worth pretty soon? Vintage clothing and collectible items are money well invested into a quality garment or product, built to last.

So Why Can Vintage Save The Planet?

Not only are vintage clothing and accessories an investment that will stand the test of time, you are doing something great for the planet; recycling! Tons of used clothes get thrown away every single year, and the modern manufacturing process can harm the environment. If you want to help the negative impact that the fashion industry has on the world, vintage clothing and accessories will ensure you look good and feel good.
