I pick up a vintage dress and my mind is immediately filled with thoughts
and images of the girl who may have once worn it. I imagine her with jet
black hair, pale skin and hazel eyes, she is in the arms of a handsome
man as they dance the night away. She has no mobile phone, no computer,
she does not juggle children and work, her life is set in simpler times.
.................. those bygone days.
With a sigh I draw my thoughts and gaze back to the dress in my hands.
I marvel at its beauty, the fine silk material, the delicate hand stitching,
the cut and drape of the fabric. I am continually stunned by the beauty
of vintage and antique clothing and the quality and workmanship that
went into the garments creation. I have never been touched by
a modern day piece of clothing the way a vintage piece touches me.
Am I crazy? I ask myself. No, I am just passionate.
When you wear vintage clothing you feel different,
and because you wear vintage clothing you are different.
