Let’s talk Vintage! I never thought that I would be into vintage because to me it was just a bunch of old pieces that people didn’t want anymore. I had to do my research and I’ve come to know that “vintage style” is defined as clothes from a previous era. Also, clothing that is vintage is usually between 20-100 years old.
When you’re a part of the fashion blogging world, finding vintage pieces is definitely a plus! Wearing vintage pieces has become very fashion forward lately. You could imagine how I felt when I found about www.clositherapi.com. What was even more great, was finding out that it was run by one of my friend’s mom’s from back home in PA. This website has a ton of vintage pieces such as clothes, shoes, accessories, and more. It’s has stuff for both men and women, as well. I have purchased two pieces from this website and couldn’t be happier.
My latest purchase consisted of this Vintage 1960s Pucci+ Esque Swing Coat. I’m a sucker for a statement coat! A swing coat is coat that swings with the wearer’s movements. They were made to cover women’s full skirts and dresses of the 1950’s.The designs on the coat are abstract and have neutral colors.It’s a size medium but it works for me because I’ll be wearing heels with it. This coat was different from what I usually wear and that is why I had to have it. It’ll give me a chance to style different outfits for everyday and even going out. It is a piece I’ll be cherishing for a while.
Emilio Pucci is an Italian designer born in the year of 1914. He was born in the city of Florence, Italy into a well-respected family. Emilio got into the fashion world when he started designing ski outfits for him and his A-list friends. One day one of his friends was photographed in the ski outfit and the photo was published in Harper’s Bazaar. His designs featured sensual, free-flowing lines that followed the natural curves of the body. Women who wore these designs were able to take them from day-to-night. Pucci’s inspiration came from his travels and the natural landscapes of the Mediterranean. Emilio passed in the year of 1992 and his legacy continues to live on.
