Vintage Clothing

For this blog post I have documented my fave summer outfits thus far, while looking through the photos you will notice a common theme of jean, floral and leather which are all very popular fabrics this summer. Continuing on with my last post of 80s and 90s fashion you will notice throughout this post a similar theme. The early 90s has proven its presence is worthy of acceptance in the fashion scene.

I am extremely strapped for cash so I have been steering clear of the more expensive vintage clothing stores and sticking with the basics. I have always been a fan of Value Village however this week I decided to venture into other thrift stores such as Goodwill and Salvation Army, which had great inventory at a low cost; even cheaper than Value Village. CHECK IT OUT!!

Summer Looks

I have lately been into rocking the Canadian tuxedo. Jean on Jean is my new thing. I got this vest from Goodwill in Toronto a long with the leather backpack. Shorts are from Value village in Montreal and Shoes are from 69 Vintage in Toronto.

Vintage Leather

I personally think these leather pants can make any plain outfit look GREAT! They are a little hot in the summer months but that’s the sacrifice we women have to make to look our best. These leather beauties are from Goodwill in Toronto.

I was pretty amazed when I found this lace number tucked away behind the racks in Goodwill, I couldn’t believe that such an amazing piece would be found in a thrift store. Jumper is from Goodwill in Toronto, blazer from Urban Outfitters, Shoes are from Aldo and Purse is from my Mother.

Yes, the recession is still going and we need to watch where we spend our dollar. I wouldn’t underestimate the potential of thrift stores. I would maybe wait a few days because I have cleared out almost all of the merchandise in both Toronto and Montreal. But if you have the time and patience check out your local thrift store to see what they have to offer.

Continuing on the topic of the recession, there is a new website out called myexcloset.com it is meant for people to sell and buy used clothing. Check it out because there are some great pieces for extremely cheap.

Until next time.
