Old Is New Again!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vintage clothing is defined as any clothing originally belonging to another era. The 70's is a big one, with its bell-bottomed, high-waisted jeans and floral prints and the 80's are currently getting lot of play with its bold prints and bright colors! Vintage was big for me in undergrad, one reason being its amazing affordability(sometimes, Vintage can also be VERY pricey, depending on the label)! And then there was Ms. Carrie Bradshaw (via styling by Patricia Field) who was the ultimate in vintage styling! And then there is my Jiggy, who can spot a fabulous vintage piece in a heartbeat and turn it into the most fabulous look! If you too are a lover of all things vintage or at least a lover of vintage looking pieces you should check out the following:
