What is the definition of VINTAGE clothing = The term vintage is used to describe clothing between 20 and 100* years old which is clearly representative of the era in which it was produced. Vintage clothing can be used, new (from dead stock), manufactured, and handmade.
It is important to understand that the definition of vintage is fluid, so every decade brings forth new items as “vintage”. It is also important to understand that all vintage will eventually become antique.
*Clothing 100 years old or more is classified as antique. (source: about style)
Today I will tell you a story about vintage clothing. Many years ago, in the beginning of the 90s a friend of mine in her years as a student,
made me aware of second hand clothing stores. At the time it had not matured in me to use clothes that others had used. I bought most of my clothes in cheap mainstream chain stores.
Mainstream buying pattern:
I will make a comment about this cheap chain stores. Sometimes I meet people who
seem to think that they are modest and noble to buy from cheap stores like I did as a young girl. They tend to have the opinion that buying cheap or not spending
too much money on clothes is a good deed, that they are not being extravagant and seeking luxury.
But let us ask this question: Is it a good deed? In a society where we produce as much garbage
as we do. Why buy clothes that do not last? Is that another add to the waste society? Is it good household economy? Is it more affordable? By buying these badly produced products we
support an industry that is producing more waste. In addition we accept the poor quality and let those businesses live on and dominate the marked.
On the other hand there are of course expensive brands that produce poor quality too. It is in my opinion not better to buy from them, though their brands might be trendy.
Back to vintage. In the old days 50s and 60s. The quality of the tailoring was in general i high one. In addition high quality,
fabrics were often used, defined by durability.
As an example some of the coats from those times still look new, they are comfortable, great looking and warm.
The first vintage garment
My very first vintage coat was sitting in my grandmother, Grethe’s, closet. The coat was there waiting for me when we were organizing her home after we sadly lost her a few years back.
It was there all by itself, brown tweed, long, elegant and warm. Around that time I was pregnant with our daughter, Julia. And was I very lucky to have found that coat!
The garment kept both her and I warm during a chilly winter. My grandmothers coat has been with me since then. The coat is most likely from the 1960s.
Julia is soon to be 10 years old, so in addition to those years my grandmother was using it
I have used it regularly for all those years. Furthermore this coat opened up my interest for vintage clothing. My search for other solutions like this opened up a new world to me.
I found shops on e-bay with high quality products. That is defined by no smell, high quality fabrics and tailoring, no wholes or damage and great customer service.
Soon my collection of vintage clothing became larger. These clothes I love them so much that they stay with me and I use them a lot. The winter garments wait in the closet for the next suitable season and the summer clothes do the same.
They are still of the same interest to me and I am looking forward to bring them back year after year.
My issues with wearing clothes that others have used are long gone. It is honestly truly hard to find the quality from the old days nowadays or less we are willing to spend a whole lot of money. Though even then we have no guaranties.
Finally I will like to make some specific recommendations, personally I have great experiences with all this.

Takk for hyggelig blog innlegg Lie 🙂
Deltok i Glamourfestaften 2016. Det var koselig å se mange kjente folk igjen. Samtidig var det gøy å bli kjent med nye folk. Det ble middag og dans. Jeg liker å ta bilder. Tok med meg kamera og har tatt en del bilder. Arne har tatt en del fine bilder av meg. Vi hadde et liten midnattshow i år. Bildene forteller alt, og er gode minner fra denne anledningen.
Mange gjester hadde på seg lange ballkjoler. Noen hadde på seg korte festkjoler, vertinnen hadde på seg en kjempefin dansekjole. De fleste valgte å ha på seg selskapskjoler. I denne anledningen er alt lov. Du kan pynte deg etter ditt ønske. Maten var kjempegod. God mat, gode mennesker. masse dansing. Hva mer kan man vente?
