Why I Love Vintage Fashion

Hello everyone!  I thought it would be fun to do a post about why I love dressing vintage and vintage fashion in general. 

I have been dressing vintage for about a year now.  While that is not all of the time, in more recent months it has been more and more.  I still wear sweat pants and t-shirts once in a while, but most of the time I'm in a vintage outfit or a vintage inspired outfit.  The difference is, is that a true vintage outfit is something that is actually vintage.  A vintage inspired outfit is modern clothing that looks vintage and you style it in a vintage way.  With a vintage hair-do, perhaps some vintage accessories, such as a brooch or scarf and voila, you look vintage.  I do both.

Or you can mix the two.  A vintage looking dress and an actual vintage cardigan.  Or what I did below, a vintage scarf and shirt with modern jeans and shoes.  Plus the sunglasses are modern, but look vintage.


Here are some points on why I love vintage fashion.

1.  It's Unique

It's not often you see someone dressed up from the 50's or any other decade, for that matter.  Fashion nowadays is so different from back then, but at the same time, you can wear whatever you want and its ok.  Although, some people will comment on how you look.  I have gotten only compliments, but I have heard of people getting negative comments on how they are dressed.  Which is sad.  I like the way I dress and that is all that matters.  If you like the way you dress, then do it!  Life is too short for boring clothes.


2. Quality Clothes

Let's face it, we don't make things like they did back then.  Clothing back then was truly beautiful.  A lot of pieces being one of a kind or homemade.  The fabric was nicer and the design flattering.  I have seen some beautiful dresses from back then.  They are truly beautiful.


3. Wearing History

The vintage clothing from the 30s, 40s, 50s and even older are a piece of history.  They have survived wars and everyday use (unless its an evening gown).  Some being 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 years old.  It's amazing to see a piece in almost perfect condition being that old.  Although, a lot of them do have little things that need fixing, but most of the time it doesn't distract from the beauty of the garment.


4. It's Fun

I enjoy getting dressed up even if I'm not leaving the house.  I like to feel and look nice.  Putting on a dress with a scarf around my neck with some earring and comfy shoes.  I like being put together and ready for anything.  Like if we decide to go somewhere, then I'm already dressed.  Although, once in a while if I am wearing sweats and we decide to go somewhere, I usually like to get dressed real quick, if I can.  I really love the way I dress and the way it makes me feel.

  1. I totally agree! I love dressing vintage - feeling classy and dressed-up, even when I'm just going to be staying home for the day - makes me feel more productive, happy and cheerful. I've found if I just stay in my PJ's I get less done and usually don't feel all that great. :p

    1. <3 Yay for T.J.Maxx!! Awesome! :D Many blessings ~ Morgan

  4. Cute outfit, Morgan! I think vintage clothing is awesome! Especially vintage dresses. Some of them are just really lovely.

    Unfortunately I'm not creative enough to fit out my own vintage wardrobe(shopping for clothes is not one of my favorite things to do...heehee), but if I could snap my fingers and have all the vintage clothes I wanted, well that would be something. ;)

    P.S. I love how you do your hair!!

    1. Thank you, Miss March! Me, too! YES! I LOVE vintage dresses!!! :D

      I think you're creative! :) YES! If I could snap my fingers and have all the vintage clothes I wanted...that would be AWESOME!!!! :D

      Aw, thank you so much!! :D <3 I hope you have a wonderful week, my friend!!! :D

  5. It was so neat to read your thoughts on this! I don't think I've ever dressed vintage, but I think it's cool that you just dress the way you want and make it WORK. It's awesome. :) And your hairstyle is adorable, by the way! Do you have to style it every day or does your hairdresser cut it that way? Either way, like I said, adorable. :)

    I also really like your red lipstick! It really adds to the whole vintage feel of things. :D Out of curiosity, are there any brands or items you always like to keep on hand, makeup-wise? (That kind of thing interests me. :D)

    1. Thank you, Olivia! Aw, thank you so much! :D My hairdresser gives me the right cut, then I pin curl it and style it. I have a lot of fun with it! I recently got it cut shorter! Which is fun! :)

      Thank you! It is from Burt's Bees natural moisturizing lipstick collection. Shade 520 Scarlet Soaked. :) I really like it because it is a nice smooth/creamy consistency. And it is a great color! I definitely recommend checking those out. I just got a second color and it is lovely as well! :D

      For makeup brands, I really like Besame and Arbonne. They are on the expensive side, but I do love the things I have from them. For foundation, I like "IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream". For eyeshadow, I like my "Too Faced Chocolate Bar Platte".

      Thank you for all the lovely comments, my friend! What are some of your favorite brands or items you like to keep on hand, makeup-wise? Many blessings, Morgan :D
