 Hello Janet! I LOOOVEE your site! I've ALWAYS LOVED VINTAGE FASHION but I have no idea what kinds of clothes to buy, especially because there are no vintage shops here in my city. I would like to ask what are the vintage fashion essentials or must haves (clothes and accessories) for a 16 year old like me or for teens? Where do you suggest I can purchase these (cheap prices)? THANK YOU VERY MUCH!


  Hi Trisha, Start by adding vintage accessories like handbags and belts to your wardrobe. Mix the accessories with your basics like jeans and tees. For dress up parties look for 50s sparkly jewelry (pins, bracelets) little cocktail hats and dresses from the 50s (oerfect for prom!) Start your vintage search online... browse FASHIONDIG by decade, catagory and price. Also, check out the FASHIONDIG Store Locator for a vintage store near you and the Links area for a selection of vinatge fashion websites.
