Welcome to another edition of Shop Talk, where we take a quick look at some of the more unique and interesting shops on Etsy.
Now, if you've spent any time at all poking around there, you know that Vintage is a huge category, with literally hundreds of shops selling all sorts of vintage items, from housewares to clothing to jewelry.
Today I'd like to discuss clothing.
Honestly, some things are best forgotten, like these acid-washed, high-waisted
jeans, complete with fold-over waist and tapered ankles. The look on the
model's face says it all, I think.
|WHAT? PEOPLE ACTUALLY WORE THESE???|
So let's talk about REAL vintage clothing, made when clothing was art, and made by artists.
|1920s black chiffon|
|1950s iridescent copper satin|
Burned out velvet over silk chiffon. You could be Ingrid Bergman at that smoky cafe in Morocco, stressed out and on the run from the Nazis, but still looking like a million dollars. Play it again, Sam.
Breezy subway grate, anyone?
All of these lovely items (plus a whole lot more) can be found at daisyandstella
