Looking like a hero of old famous Hollywood movies gets you in amazing mood.
Ladies & gendlemen, welcome to a vintage magical world.
You woke up early today and suddenly you realize that your daily routine staying at home has nothing stunning to narrate to your mood.
It's not neccesary to be an author, though. Your aura needs a mysterious mood, beautiful fabrics on your clothes, smooth hair, captive pale makeup or a sensual perfume to rush on your skin. You discover a movie hero in your personality and finally it's your right to demand beauty in your style, life and attitude.
Look, I want to be honest. Some people don't know what vintage means. They think we talk about 2nd hand items, or things belonging at some other time to strangers. This is a chance. Not the only one, indeed. This is respectable as opinion. Here though, I won't try to force you on this path.
Let me explain that when we say vintage we mean items created on this style, too. They usually look exactly like the old lovely items. There is a whole phylosophy and industry about new designs based on vintage ones. Vintage is a trend - an attitude.
''Do you feel like a star? ''
Why not? It could be costing you the most but even nothing to follow a vintage style in outfits and I am here to enjoy you with my crazy times, while I was a student running like a jaguar to fix things.
My projects wanted me to feel on a list of moods, like the list we write down doing our shopping. Stubborn things like being:
Stylish even tired.
Smiley even angry.
Funny even sleepy.
Friendly even standing on feet at silly events during 3 days of a gala.
Had I told you? Music is one of my passions and it is my medicine.
Imagine me then, wishing to stop the melodies. Just to relax my ears from the mad noise of people who try to create. Create for what? For the exams of the year. For 4 years in a serie. The subject was given to all of us in the classroom, divided in themes:
20s, 60s, 70s, Garden, Byzantine World, Egyptian Style, Modern Evening.
The story wanted me lucky - based on my experience & high grades to pick up those theme I desired to, taking part in the fashion show. Just lucky, as I always kept & keep a secret weapon, since I was a child.
''The vintage style: The style which transformate you into a princess, a cartoon, a movie star, a famous singer or a fabulous persona you love to be. Music helps to inspire you. Getting the authentic spirit of the past time you are called to revive. And letting you live it in real. ''
When it's easy to follow tips and habits of a vintage time season.
It is not enough to love this style.
You have to do combinations.
Mix related styles to create a new one.
Freshness adds beauty and details make the difference on you.
Think of a 60s look with black leather pants with chains on it. ( Rock ). Add a cap hat and a backpack made of rope.( Athleisure style). Add plastic sandals. (Beach look). You drive a stylist straight to the hell of fashion. Plus a big laugh. The same happens when you keep an absolut 70s style in jewels, with round circles on ears, wearing a 20s satin long waist dress, holding a bag made by upcycled paper with fluo 80s colors in prints. Now the photographer may ask you how to die avoiding any pain than watching at you.
You laugh, my friend, but it is so usual for new students in the 1st year of their studies to do these things.
Insisting that they do their best.
And feeling like a silly pro.
Of course he is the silliest among the sillies.
Yes, those ones failed the exams.
You won't mix styles in this way, then.
Anyways I had my focus to keep a serie about some points. Here they are free for you.
You can follow fashion tips from 2 close decades. For example, 50s & 60s do their best together.
You just play with lengths on skirts or pants and colors.
Pale colors on 60s, darkers on 50s.
Play with designs keeping details on arms, embroideries and lovely coats.
Elegant shoes, even you have to wear wide 50s heels, or 60s kitten or higher sharp heels.
A wide skirt stopping on the knee looks as cute as a longer and tight of 50s. Both styles are an hymne to the feminine world.
The body weight is not a trouble as patterns are great made for all body types in a variety of designs.
These vintage stores then keep treasures of style in cheap even almost free prices. Imagine how many dresses, coats, shirts, hand bags full in crystals or unique scarves you can find there.
Do you want the best part? You can even buy a damaged item as I did always.
No easy for stores to make it new, so they try to sell these items in low prices, just to kick them out of their place.
''You can play with fashion saving money, however you like. I quarantee it. Do you know why? My work position in those times got me insane but there was a pretty target to hit. Plans & time organization help.''
Not bad for a girl like the butterfly, working hard from 08:00 in the morning to 16:00 in the afternoon, running in half an hour to reach her class at 16:30. To finish at 21:00 and waiting the bus to return at home. Needing time to take a quick bath, to eat, to relax, to prepare projects for the study courses, to sleep finally at 02:00 in the morning at least and waking up at 06:00 to prevent the bus at 07:00. To be in time at work. 4 days in week followed this plan.
A lovely life time though, because she wanted to learn these things. Fashion and decoration. Touching silken floral dresses from 30s and velvet coats from 20s. Pearls on bags from 60s and t- shirts from 50s. All together put on amazing floral sofas and luxurious coffee tables. All together being parts of a lesson on these fields.
A pure paradise of style for me to study on. Oh, Lord, I do really Thank You!
How to save money by an easy, vintage, daily & unforgettable styling.
You scroll down social media photos trying to follow trends. Not bad but you look like the same to more than 1000 in your own town only. In next 3 weeks a new fashion teaser crashes on a platform. The star X wears this one trend. The star F suggests those one trend, too. Both earn money from posting. You get the round zero even as a number of ''likes'' under your Insta stories, or Fb posts.
Come on. You know exactly why this happens. Cz you remind of others.
Your style does not show something about you. It's a copied outfit.
I won't delay you. Things are simple. Try to be different.
Visit relatives, villages, storages, stores with vintage items.
Borrow, repair, buy, create new items based on them.
Wear the originals after checking for damages.
Try to watch movies to do your combinations.
I still keep items from those period of time reminding me sweet memories.
If I could do it then, why don't you try it now? And ask me about it.
Feel your stunning styling effect among the crowd.
The ''new you'' impresses even yourself. You never looked more handsome or beautiful.
Study on the hair style and accessories in heros. No mimic all these you see there.
Follow the details.
And remember this :
Noone looks exactly like you & you save so much money taking masterpieces of items at home. A gendle cleaning is great for them.
You look unforgettable to others like the fresh aura in a warm room.
