Retro Fashion Up-Cylcing ...

Reduce reuse recycle has never been more true than when it comes to up-cycling clothing! It is an exciting time in fashion when there is truly nothing in or out but only that which speaks to individuality, comfort, nostalgia and a love of all things vintage. The beauty of vintage clothing is it has stood the test of time. The quality of many of the wares and the craftsmanship in the production is something that is hard to find in our mass produced throw-away culture.

Stepping back in time and pulling forward a piece of clothing into today’s world is not only fun to do but especially fun to wear. Whether a casual feeling groovy shirt or a flower power dress, a tartan wool winter warm boot skirt or a full on vintage elegant wedding dress, the news that everything old is new again when it comes to fashion is a welcome way to express your style. It is all good, as it saves the landfills from too much trash, reduces way too much consumerism by lessening the demand for mass produced goods and gives an old garment a second, third or even fourth life.

               Now that is fashion-fun!
