Learn How to Shop Vintage Like a Stylist
November is synonymous with so many poignant changes; there’s a damp chill in the air, a sombre feeling as we lead up to Remembrance day (if you call Canada home), followed by excitement for the holiday season and all manner of hot frothy drinks and cozy knit sweaters.
Thrown into this mix, for me, is vintage fashion. Every year, Ottawa plays host to two awesome vintage shows, and often I’ll head to at least one of them with my trusty shopping partner (my mother) and a latte. More recently I haven’t actually been purchasing anything, but a huge part of shopping for vintage clothing – for me, anyway – is the joy of discovering and appreciating well-crafted items and taking a trip back in time.
In this week’s vlog, I take you shopping with me on a trip to one of my favourite vintage boutiques in Ottawa, Bellwethers vintage. Learning how to shop vintage shopping can seem daunting and overwhelming, but it’s an absolute blast if you have time and an open mind. (Or – as always, pin the little graphic I made below and watch later!)
I hope you enjoy the video along with some of my tips to a successful vintage shopping trip!
As always, thanks for reading, xo
