I’ve been sewing for five years and focused on period costumes and original designs for the last three. I make costumes for fun and to expand my skill set so I can hopefully get a job in the industry someday.

Misconceptions about Vintage Fashion : Venturing into Vintage

I rambled a lot. Breaking down my misconceptions starts around 7:03 ! PART TWO:

Also to clarify:

I really do respect and admire all sorts of styles. Whether it’s gothic lolita or some sort of boho chic. I think people who have defined styles that they clearly enjoy and put effort into are AWESOME regardless of the style itself.

My thoughts on the majority of modern vintage inspired pieces has everything to do with my personal style and what I want to invest money in/wear. I didn’t mean it to be accusatory to anyone who wears those styles. In fact I follow a lot of people who embrace the rockabilly 1950’s style and think it is great. It’s just not great for ME.

ALSO I know I used the word tacky – I don’t think I use that word in as negative of a way as some people (I use that word to describe my decorating sense for example). I use it more as “Overwhelmingly over the top” which isn’t how I like to dress. But that doesn’t mean it is bad!

The last thing I would want to do is make anyone feel bad about their style. Because that is a really personal thing, and if it makes you happy then I’m happy for you!
