clothes-minded.



i'm a little embarrassed to make this next statement, but i'm going to go ahead and write it anyway: i am not good at vintage. i am so envious of people who are--people who can sift through racks of clothes and come away with gorgeous, one-of-a-kind outfits. i'm the same way with sales; i'm not good at them, either. i'm the girl who walks into a store, looks at the outfit on the mannequin or the pieces at the front of the store, and goes through them first. (i know.)

but when i came across 1918 vintage, via a notification that the shop was following me on twitter, i was inspired to try vintage again. the shop, run by miss meg, has a well-edited collection of super-pretty pieces that are, above all, very wearable and well-priced. i particularly love this apron dress; it's so anthropologie, is it not?

do you vintage?

p.s. another great vintage shop that inspires me to try again: pretty little world. the dresses are incredible.

  2. I have a really hard time with sales and vintage clothing, too. I don't have the patience for it. But I'm also not a big shopper, so maybe if I shopped more I would have more patience for hunting for treasures. I might have to follow your lead and give that 1918 Vintage a shot.
