My sister has yet another school requirement coming up, in the form of a vintage-inspired fashion show for PE class. Yes, you read that right.
And because I love old dresses and other old things, I volunteered to hunt for the perfect vintage dress. After several productive vintage hunting sprees over the years, I’ve come to a few conclusions.
- Vintage dresses take longer to wear, and are harder to get out of. Spandex and other stretch fabrics were non-existent. These dresses were a form of contraception.
- Vintage dresses can be extremely forgiving. They flare and fit at the right places. You don’t have to be an Olsen.
- Vintage dresses are good for the environment.
So without further ado, here are some of my latest vintage finds in what may well be the cheapest photo shoot EVER.
