However, if it’s the hunt you are after, it’s time to thrift.

You must keep in mind that older finds are harder to come by, especially from your run-of-the-mill thrift store.

Below we’ll outline the major three ways you can learn more about your latest purchase.

Keep in mind you’ll want to take this guide with a grain of salt; fabrics can be mended, zippers can be replaced, and seams can be taken in.

If you are hoping to spot a classic 1950’s rockabilly dress straight from your local thrift shop, think again.

My best luck is when I ditch the store and thrift the outlet.

I run a small vintage clothing store on Etsy called Dizzy Dreamer Vintage.

Dizzy Dreamer started out with my exploding closet of vintage threads.

1910s | Long hemlines, empire waistlines, and high collars reflected the conservative cultural tones of the time.

Women had very restrictive rules regarding fashion and there wasn’t much variety in styles and shapes.

Therefore, your dress from 1995 now counts as vintage. You must have somewhat of a ‘vintage eye’ to decipher the difference between one dreaded 80’s secretary blouse from another coveted 80’s secretary blouse.

If you are looking to sell vintage online, you must have a ‘vintage eye’ or your shop will suffer.

If you just want to update (or should I say outdate..) your wardrobe, then feed on modern styles for inspiration as you look for your personal vintage threads.
