I’ve been a huge lover of vintage my entire life, but the thought of a puffy prom dress from the ‘80s entering my vicinity gives me nightmares. Instead, my favourite way to wear vintage is to look like I’m not wearing vintage at all. I like to hunt for items that are timeless, beautifully made and reflective of current trends. The best thing about vintage is that when you find a true treasure, no one else will ever have it, and that is what makes your wardrobe (and style) unique. These sheer black pleated palazzo pants were found at the Salvation Army, and my cotton top (that is nearly 100 years old) was found at a local market in Florence, Italy. While my outfit probably cost me less than $20 in total, I don’t believe anyone would ever be able to tell.
