As every year before Halloween, we look for costumes and pay attention to makeup. Let's see how genuine gold leafs can be used for unique creations.
As we notice just in this season the autumn coats have exact style as of 1950-ies, in addition to styles, it is obvious that the latest creations by our favorite brands are vintage-inspired.
Time by time as we run through different styles we turn our sense to something that is far to our casual look. Remakes will have the turn due to upcoming nostalgy for Unique Vintage style.
By definition clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage. Retro, short for retrospective, or "vintage style" usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era.
Reproduction, or repro, clothing is a newly made copy of an older garment. Clothing produced more recently is usually called modern or contemporary fashion. Opinions vary on these definitions.
If you pay any mind to -- and what girl doesn't -- the retro fashion trends that surround us, you realize that every day seems to generate a new fad. It's almost hard to keep up with what's in and what's out.
However, one trend that has stood the test of time and doesn't seem to be going anywhere is cute and stylish vintage clothing and accessories. From the '20s flapper dresses, we all wanted to don after seeing The Great Gatsby, to the chic '40s and '50s pinup clothing, retro swimwear and vintage-inspired indie clothing.
Unique Vintage offers it all as inspired dresses are offered with a modern twist, making them just-right options for a range of events and occasions. The vintage look is never too playful or serious - it's always just right.
Getting dressed in the morning is fun when your wardrobe is filled with colorful, retro pieces perfect for mixing and matching.
A-line and swing skirt frocks are ideal for a long day at the office or an even longer night out on the town, and they each feature fun, whimsical prints that modern styles simply don’t have. Separates such as skirts, trousers, and blouses enable you to get many different uses out of just a few items, and all of ours feature the high-waisted, cropped or polka dotted goodness that Unique Vintage is known for.
Most vintage clothing has been previously worn, but a small percentage of pieces have not. These are often old warehouse stock, and more valuable than those that have been worn, especially if they have their original tags. Referred to as deadstock or new old stock (NOS), they nevertheless sometimes have flaws. Vintage clothing may be either commercially produced or handmade by individuals.
Popular places to buy vintage clothing include charity-runsecond-hand clothing shops, consignment shops, garage sales, car boot sales, flea markets, antique markets, estate sales, auctions, vintage clothing shops and vintage fashion, textile or collectibles fairs.
One of the first regular fairs that were set up specifically to cater for the current demand for vintage clothing is Frock Me!. This event takes place regularly throughout the year is Chelsea London as well as inBrighton. Vintage clothing is sometimes also obtained from older friends and relatives.
Typically in the United States, vintage clothing shops can be found clustered in college towns and artsy neighborhoods of cities. Sizing is a major factor - in most locations in the United States, the majority of the population would be unable to find vintage clothing that fits. In contrast to thrift stores that sell both vintage and contemporary used clothing, vintage clothing shops are usually for-profit enterprises, with the market mixed between small chains and independent stores.
The advent of the internet has been a boon to the vintage clothing industry. It has increased the availability of specific and hard-to-get items and opened up prospective markets for sellers around the world. Popular places to acquire garments include online auctions such as eBay, multi-vendor sites like Etsy, online vintage clothing shops and specialist forums. Many vintage clothing shops with physical locations now also sell their goods online.
Prices are often lower than new garments of equivalent quality and also less than the garment's inflation-adjusted original purchase price.
Sizing in the United States, due to changes in clothing sizes, vintage sizes often are smaller than the corresponding contemporary size. For example, a garment from the 1970s labeled as Medium (M) might be similar in size to a 2010s Extra Small (XS). As obesity was relatively uncommon prior to the 1980s, larger sizes are typically rare. Vintage sewing patterns offer an option for those who want a historically accurate garment but cannot find one in their size.
