Why I prefer vintage

The style...

the details...

1940's swing coat from Nifty Vintage
perfect!
Velvet tam beret from Southern Bella Vintage

This kind of classic design never goes out of style!

Oh, me, too! Only they were so much smaller then. (especially their heads!) ;^)

There is good vintage, and then there is the 1980's polyester leisure suit!

I became a vintage hound after the movie Pretty in Pink and haven't looked back (...or is that forward?) since! Awesome finds!

The difference may have been that not as much of it was SOOOO mass produced. Smaller quantities. Perhaps people were willing to spend more money for quality then, too. ???
