When I first started wearing “vintage” clothing, it was in the 90's, and back then it was easy to find dresses from the 60's and 70's at the local thrift store for under a dollar. My senior year, I had spent a total of $40 for my “back to school” wardrobe, consisting of over 35 dresses each unique and quite special. Unfortunately, those days are long gone, and while you can find vintage pieces for $1 at a flea market or the bargain bin, how we wear vintage these days is completely different. Not so much to save money, although sometimes vintage is cheaper, but as a way of wearing that unique piece that you can't find at Zara or J Crew, something with a story behind it, something special.
