Alright I'll be honest, that sounds pretty superficial! But there is another reason why i love vintage shopping. Its not about spending money, it's not about showing of what you have. I love knowing that i can make something fun and me out of that old piece of clothing, i love wearing my grandmothers old skirts and my mothers tight black pencil skirt. I love giving something a second life, making something out of it. Making something out of someone else's hand me downs.
One of the things I love about Amsterdam is that you have a lot vintage stores. One of my favourite is called, Joosje (Spuistraat 62 H). They have everything from bags, shoes, earrings and all the kind of clothes you van imagine. The people that work there are always willing to help or lend a creative idea to make an outfit work. The clothes i find there i can't imagine them being anyone's trash, but even if they are, they now are my treasure... Let me know what you think of them!
