Elevate Your Style with Vintage Finds


In a world where fashion trends come and go, there's a certain charm in discovering pieces that stand the test of time. For over 15 years, I've been on a journey of incorporating vintage finds into my wardrobe, and it's transformed not just my outfits but my entire style. In today's post, I'l be sharing how vintage fashion adds a unique flair that sets your style apart from the crowd.

There's a magic in discovering hidden gems in thrift stores, vintage shops, or even in your grandmother's closet. These pieces tell stories of eras gone by and bring a sense of history and individuality to your style. From timeless leather jackets to elegant silk scarves, each find becomes a treasure waiting to be rediscovered. This set I’m wearing today was found tucked away in the back of Antiques Barn at Water Street Market after a 5 hour hike in Minewaska State Park. It was just one of the many items I was lucky enough to take home with me.

What I love most about integrating vintage into my wardrobe is the feeling of authenticity it brings. Unlike mass-produced items, vintage pieces carry a distinct character and craftsmanship that make them truly one-of-a-kind. It's about embracing a style that reflects your personality rather than conforming to the latest fashion fads.


Whether it's a delicately embroidered blouse from the '60s or a perfectly worn-in pair of Levi's from the '70s, vintage finds add a touch of nostalgia to your everyday looks. I find joy in the fact that my style isn't replicated on every street corner—it's a curated collection of pieces that resonate with me on a personal level. Take this green skirt set as an example. When have you ever seen a set like this? In this color, in this silhouette, made in the 70's? I personally think they no longer make pieces like this and I'm sure many of you will agree. The attention to detail is exquisite. 

The beauty of incorporating vintage into your style is the freedom to mix and match across decades. A vintage statement piece can effortlessly elevate a modern ensemble, creating a harmonious blend of old and new. Experimenting with styles from different eras allows you to express yourself in a way that transcends the limitations of contemporary fashion.

In a world where trends are fleeting, cultivating a style that stands apart is a rewarding journey. Vintage finds not only add a touch of glamour to your wardrobe but also provide a connection to the past, making every outfit a story waiting to be told. So, the next time you unearth a hidden gem in a vintage store, remember, you're not just buying a piece of clothing; you're investing in a timeless expression of your unique style.
