Whether you like to call 'em old, retro, or vintage, I love finding garments from decades past. It really goes without saying that most clothes from the past were made better than the sweat-shopped clothes we find today (that tend to fall apart in a couple years time, it seems).
She was quite glamourous, no?(Also, that's my dad, see the resemblance?)
I was happy to find out that I could fit in my mom's old clothes, so I begged her to have them. Two new editions to my closet!
It's funny because these sweaters have come back in full force!
A wavy ring that belonged to my American grandmother.
A necklace (with a picture of my sister and I--we are 20 years apart) from my Turkish grandmother.
A shirt with cute detail that I often wear to work. My boss asked if I had made it cause the stitching was so good. Nah, clothes were just better back in the day!
The awesome part: I didn't have to pay a cent for any of these great new items! Score!
