"Back to School Vintage Style"

The best part of going back to school when I was young were the new clothes! It was so exciting to shop for basics as well as a few trendy items.

Mandatory was something plaid, which was huge then, especially Madras. We loved and saved for anything leather or suede. Of course skirts were a staple, pencil, A- line or mini skirts, and sweaters of any style. What goes around, comes around.. all these are right back in style!

With so many schools wearing uniforms these days, the thrill of school clothes is probably long gone. Sadly, today's school kids are missing a wonderful tradition. I can appreciate peer pressure, outrageously priced coveted designer clothing, and the relief school uniforms are to the average family.

For those still allowed to wear their own clothing it would be so much fun to incorporate some vintage into their fall wardrobe.

Vintage also encourages your child to have their own style.. if they are Skaters, Indie, Emo, Punk, Goth, or just little hippies, there is sure to be vintage pieces to suit each one!

If your kids wear uniforms, you can still "back to school shop" for yourself. Bring back your fond shopping memories of school shopping with our mothers by adding classic vintage fall pieces to your work wardrobe. Plaid skirts are always in style and pretty cardigans are timeless and classic, Its a great excuse for some new clothes for everyone.

One of the best parts of shopping vintage on line is our shops are open 24 hours a day, and you don't need to fuss with your hair or put on makeup. We don't mind~ shop as you are!
