You may have recently discovered that cleaning out your closet has become a new pastime, rather than chore. Gone are the days our parents begged us to make space in our rooms by getting rid of our old, no longer size appropriate, clothing. In fact, you may very well find yourself asking your parents for some of their aged threads, too. From shades to shell tops, biker shorts to band-tees, the vintage sensation is real and on the rise. If you’re worried you’ve already gotten rid of your once thought of “junk,” don’t fret-all of the coolest and trendiest clothing stores have you covered by actually selling repurposed vintage clothing. Whether you’re inspired by the glamour of the ’50’s, captivated by the fashion of the ’70’s, or obsessed with the vibe created in the ’90’s, your style is sure to be considered “in” and “on trend.”

What is it about vintage clothing that millennials significantly value? The answer to this question may vary depending on who you ask, but I can’t help but suspect the abundance of admiration has much to do with the fascination with nostalgia our generation deeply acquires.

An ample amount of what we are consumed by is a reincarnation of what once was. We follow Instagram accounts dedicated to the bombshells of the ’90’s and early 2000’s, think Alicia Silverstone circa Clueless and Paris Hilton during the time of The Simple Life. Generation Y has experienced the creation, conclusion, and rebirth of American Idol, most of us before our twenty-fifth birthday. We have generated a type of obsession with the past, but we don’t reflect and move on from it, we bring it back and do it better. So shouldn’t we perfect the fashion of the past with the style of the present? You bet.

Shopping in thrift stores, buying used clothing, and wearing a trend or brand that is considered “so yesterday,” was once frowned upon. You couldn’t possibly rock the denim jacket you bought for less than twenty bucks at the mom and pop boutique around the corner from your home, but now each tear, rip and pull represents how fashion-forward you actually are. Mixing and matching has been gifted a new meaning by this particular area of fashion. You can pair the Holly Golightly inspired sunglasses you found at Urban Outfitters with the FILA shorts your mom bought you in 1998 and instantly serve a major look. The rules of vintage are as follows: there are no rules. So what are you waiting for? Zip up your bell bottoms, straighten your bucket hat, and bask in the assortments of rips, prints, and thrifts!

      First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

        There’s a great book we recommend by Natalie Goldberg called “Writing Down The Bones” it’s not a difficult read, and has succinct and pertinent information and practices that make the writing experience more of a pleasure than a chore.

      I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100 certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
