I was recently going through my mom’s pictures from when she was younger and the only thing obsolete about the pictures was the quality of the photograph!! Fashion really is immortal……the shoes, dresses, shades etc are things my friends and I are drool over in today’s fashion pages. I found that interesting so I went digging for pictures from the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. I saw some ‘A’-line dresses, high waist skirts, dungarees, harem pants, chunky jewelry … does this ring a bell? Sure it does. It’s the trend now!
This is no new feature in fashion and retro doesn’t seem to be going back. it is in fact the main stay as designers are creating more ways to make vintage ultra-chic. You can do just about anything with old clothes, or fashion new ones; people rip their jeans themselves after all.
I would have definitely have recycled stuff from mom’s trunk and blessed her for saving me some pennies. So here’s a worthy tip; the clothes we wear today may be in vogue 10-20 years from now and as such invest in quality, as you or your kids may need those years down the road!
