My Love for Vintage

botanical garden and a vintage outfit

EN  Since I was a little girl, I was extremely interested in what clothes I could find in my grandma and mum’s closet. The older, the better! I always loved the idea of having a piece of clothing that has a bit of history. I also love the idea of having something unique. And most importantly, I love how the vintage clothes are more feminine, which is totally my style.

I used to go to thrift shops all the time back home in Romania. But here in Manchester it seems that more girls share my passion, so it’s quite hard to find a proper thrift store. They’re all quite commercial and too expensive for my liking. And that’s why I usually go to fairs 🙂 Today you see me in one of my favourite and most comfortable outfits for this summer: top from a kilo sale, skirt and bag from a thrift store in Romania, belt from my mum since she was my age, the scarf and sandals from Primark. I feel excellent in this outfit and I hope to inspire you to go and dig out your closet, wear some old clothes for the sake of great memories and to be more environmentally friendly!

RO   De mica mi-a placut sa cotrobai prin dulapurile bunicilor. Era o distractie maxima cand mergeam la tara si mai gaseam ceva prin pod. Cu cat erau hainele mai vechi, cu atat ma fascinau mai mult. Iar mama de obicei imi povestea cum a ajuns sa cumpere materialul si cum i-a venit ideea, cateodata avea si poze si era absolut minunat! Cu timpul mi-am format obiceiul sa ma duc prin magazine second-hand si aveam cateva locatii cheie. 

Insa ajunsa la Manchester mi-am dat seama ca aici treaba e mai populara si majoritatea magazinelor sunt cu haine mai alese si (muult) mai scumpe. Asa ca mi-e mai greu sa gasesc comori ascunse, dar pasiunea a ramas. In zile ploioase pot sa ma pierd cu orele printre magazine. Imi plac enorm hainele vintage, sa stiu ca au povestea lor, sa stiu ca sunt unice si, cel mai important, imi place ca majoritatea sunt foarte feminine – un stil vestimentar care ma caracterizeaza si ma avantajeaza. 

Tinuta de astazi e in principal compusa din haine vintage, sau mai direct spus, second-hand! Bluza e de la un eveniment kilo sale din Manchester, fusta si geanta sunt din Baia Mare, cureaua a fost a mamei de cand era de varsta mea, iar fularul si sandalele sunt noi, de la Primark. E una din tinutele in care ma simt excelent si sper sa va inspir si pe voi sa cotrobaiti prin dulapuri si sa mai purtati din hainele vechi, de dragul amintirilor si de dragul de-a fi mai eco friendly! 🙂
