    I'm not sure why it should be pushing it. Even early '70's was referred to as vintage in the 90's. :P Stuff that is 20+ years old seems fair to call vintage; my definition of it just hasn't updated in the last... 20 years.

    I think most people just refer to anything from the 70s as "old," "ugly shit," or "costumes." Clothing from the early 60s and before is actually desirable and hold value among the vintage communities.

    Not really. There is a ton of fabulous stuff from the 70's. I'm not talking Sears catalog sweaters and cords and stuff, of course. Every era since the industrial revolution has had some gross mass produced "fashion," but there's always cool stuff from each generation too.

    i'd call my 70s patchwork leather coat vintage, plenty of people have made offers on it. of course i went to an actual thrift store. i get more annoyed when the word vintage is used on something new that looks vintage but is not really from the era.

    Um, it's not sexy and I've seen people wear way, way worse at the office. I think showing off massive amounts of cleavage is worse than a pretty tame sheer back. I've worn open-backed dresses to work and gotten lots of compliments on them from female coworkers. I dunno, I guess every office is difference.

    Yeah this. And I think the vintage/not vintage argument is silly. The 90s were 20 years ago (I know, I know) so...yeah, I'll consider it vintage. I mostly buy up 90s clothes in droves because it's still relatively affordable and a lot of the cuts/styles are pretty flattering on my body. I would wear more 40s/50s stuff if it wasn't so expensive.

    I dunno. It's either psychological or I'm just too goddamn lazy to go through tons of other people's clothes to find something that works for me. I want a website in which I can enter in my measurements for any clothing item that I may desire, and in a few months someone ships that perfectly tailored item to me. And I don't want to pay $4,000 for it.

    I just know my measurements and go on eBay/Etsy and look up styles I want that work with my size. It never takes me a long time. I dunno, maybe I'm just weird.

    Amy, a lot of vintage things would actually work for you because they definitely skew small. It's reaaaally hard to find vintage stuff that I can wear that isn't some godawful polyester muumuu.

    ^ I can second this. A lot of why I can find vintage clothes is because I have a super small bust measurement and a small waist. Usually have to get things with "Free hips" because of my damn babymaking genes...but vintage shopping is a definite plus of being less endowed in the boob region.

    Amy, you have the perfect figure for vintage clothes especially stuff from the early 60's.

    I have a huge collection of vintage clothes, but I rarely wear any of my real special stuff because it just gets so damn expensive to dry clean.

    No, but that was the fashion trend, so a lot of clothes were made for that figure. Think Twiggy.

    I think I'm too old for mini-skirts and mini-dresses. What else is there from that time period?

    edit: nevermind. I'm googling.

    I only wore used clothing when I was a growing up. We were poor. The only alternative would've been going naked.


    Really, most of my favorite articles of clothing ever were all vintage, found at thrift stores and garage sales. It's considerably tougher to find things that way nowadays. Online is where it's at, but the disadvantage is not being able to try them on.

    Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick's fashion sense were my ideal. If I could dress in leggings or minis and boots and fantastic eyeliner and great jewellery every day I'd do it in a second. Too bad I'm less than 5 ft. tall.

    My dermatologist PA recommends Cerave. I haven't tried it yet though (still using up my Cetaphil).

    I need a recommendation for a non-prescription acne cream now that my insurance won't cover Duac anymore. Goddamn insurance wants me to look like a pizza face.

    I swear by Shiseido, but I have combination skin, and my experience is that you pretty much just have to try things until you find something that works for you. Make sure whatever you pick is not too harsh or drying -- it will actually make your skin oilier.

    I would worry less about brands/labels than condition/measurements. If you're buying stuff to wear - not as investment pieces - the manufacturer really won't matter. Honestly, I'd just spend some time sifting through eBay or Etsy, do a search for like "60s dress xs" or whatever and then see what pops up.

    Very true, re: brand/condition. Poorly made vintage clothing either won't be around still or will be in terrible condition. Clothing constructed well and made from good fabric (and stored properly) will be the only stuff that has really held up in good condition. There are of course a number of prominent designer labels from that time, but vintage designer clothing is going to most likely be prohibitively expensive for daily use.
