Angel Cutsforth for Second City Style Magazine
If any of you are like me, you made the wardrobe resolution of quality over quantity this year. And while I might not be able to afford designer names which constitute quality, in most circumstances I can definitely save up for the vintage pieces that I would like to see in my closet this year – and for many years to come. See that’s the thing with vintage, if you get classic designs they never go out of style, and they have survived 20, 30, 40 years if not more, so the quality has to be good.
Especially seek wool suits from the 1950’s and 1960’s, when there was an abundance of skirt and dress suits then and some of the finest are still available today for around $100 and upwards. 1940’s suits also hold a place in my heart because of the fact that in the 1940’s with rationing and Make Do and Mend, the suits are of an amazing quality, usually made by hand by women themselves.
For a lot less than the latest “it” bag you can get a great quality vintage handbag, with features you just don’t see anymore. Bag feet – which in my opinion should never have been phased out, hard leather or frames to create stiff shapes that don’t twist, or change shape when you carry your life in it. I’m personally looking for a vintage doctor’s bag that I can use as a carry on bag for flights and holidays.
