While I love the quality of many real vintage items, the battle of thrifting and searching can require a lot of patience. Not only this, but finding items in good shape are very important for garments as you don't want to look like you just stepped out of a thrift store. (or smell like it!) Taking the time to mend and clean your new pieces without destroying them can be a challenge. Well, I couldn't be more excited to share that Unique Vintage recently launched a selection of original pieces in their new true vintage shop! It was clear to see that UV only selects pieces that are either in pristine condition or only slightly worn, as I discovered upon receiving my gorgeous vintage 1950's eyelet day dress. I was also overjoyed to find that it fit me like a glove, without any alterations. I think this is largely due to the fact that vintage styles were consistently made with the hourglass in mind, as ladies always wore their corsets or shape wear. I added my own vintage nylon scarf with a pearl brooch & white crinoline for volume, and loved how the authentic 50's look seemed complete. As the eyelet is slightly see-through, my nude corset + brassiere kept everything looking sleek. I'm also excited to try different vintage lingerie such as standout black bullet bra, corset and knickers for a more creative look!
Do yourself a favor and head over to Unique Vintage's new real vintage shop and just look at the beauty there... but I'll be jealous if you snag some of my favorites!
