When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you’re not just buying the fabric and thread – you’re buying a piece of someone’s past

Isabel Wolff

Beautiful clothes have been with us since humans started wearing clothes. I would bet that back in the caveman days there were some cave people who dressed better or more fashionably than others. There are, however, clothing eras that are more appealing than others. I recently attended a photography exhibit that included some vogue covers from the early 1900’s. The strong lines and vibrant hues are particularly appealing and the fashions speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy this look at some great Vogue covers.

Decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.

Gianni Versace

This is one of the earliest covers. I loved the deep green colors and the hat is terrific.

I buy what makes my heart sing. So, it’s not that I follow one specific track. It’s sort of what I like. I love colors. I love unique pieces. I love vintage clothing.

Tracee Ellis Ross

Fashion has always been an avenue for expressing your individual taste. Love the curves in the picture above. Neutrals provide the base but are bordered by strong blues and browns.

I wear everything from hip-hop baggy pants to beautiful Armani dresses. I also like to mix vintage clothing with designer pieces.

Julia Stiles

More curves and strong colors with a bit of an oriental feel that was popular in the day.

In the fashion industry, everything goes retro except the prices.
Criss Jami

This is one of my favorite photos. I love the grey and black background drenched with rain. the pop of color with beautiful curving lines and great movement make this especially appealing.

My old vintage designs are so popular now. I must have been on to something.
Pierre Cardin

Who doesn’t want to dress in a beautiful dress with flowers and a great hat posing in front of an arbor with the ocean in the background?

I have eclectic taste, and I love vintage style mixed with glamour and old-world charm.
Sonam Kapoor

This woman looks elegant and at ease. The strong colors and the mix of curving and rectangular shapes makes this a very striking portrait. I even like the earrings.

Hope you enjoyed this look at a retrospective exhibit on fashion. Enjoy your Sunday at home and join me Tuesday morning for a Welcome Fall Blog Hop. You’ll find lots of creative ideas for Fall table settings.

  1. Interesting post. Instead of my usual pants and cotton top, I wore my “new” summer dress (again). It is full of bright floral colors so I can wear a wide variety of different colors of blingy summer jewelry with it! I have worn the dress for all occasions this summer with different audiences so they don’t know how many times I’ve worn it!!!

    1. I do love beautiful vintage fashions. The exhibit was a lot of fun to view. We just don’t dress up much anymore. My life is lived in jeans. LOL. Have a great week and thanks for visiting.

  2. Totally in love with all the prints. i don’t think Art Deco gets enough credit for timeless beauty. But, that is what we are searching for …I think. Enjoyed, Sandi from Share Your style

  3. These are very different! They definitely fit into your eclectic vibe!
