Choosing vintage style clothing
allows you to create the image you want to create, one that is uniquely you.
Making a statement means not
finding others wearing your same outfit. We all cringe at the thought of seeing
ourselves coming and going. I remember, at my high school graduation party,
seeing another girl wearing the exact same dress as me. I wanted to disappear.
You can avoid that disaster by
choosing a vintage style dress and pairing it with a genuine vintage handbag or
Or choose vintage-like
accessories to add to an authentic vintage dress.
In either case, you are placing
elements that surprise and add to the costume. You are making a fashion
statement. You are recognizing truly dated clothes and adding the touch that
brings them up-to-date.
There’s lots of leeway for you to
personalize your style by picking what is comfortable and looks right on you.
You can also create your own
vintage style clothing by using something you currently own and redesigning it
with a updated flair.

fabric in different shapes and colors and talcum powder. This kit will help you
