Step 6 of 6 - Your guide to get started with Vintage & Second Hand
Time for reflection
Congratulations! You have found at least one vintage or second hand gem to add to your wardrobe and many future looks. Now it is time to challenge yourself to become a real vintage wearer:
Wear one of your new vintage items in three different ways in one week Think about how it feels and if you are happy with the look/s.
Did you get something that doesn't feel 100% right for you? Do one of the following things:
Modify it to suit you (do it yourself or take it to the tailor)
Give it to a friend or donate it to a charity shop, it's no big deal
Pay another visit to your favorite vintage or second hand store once you feel ready to replace it
If you started off easy with adding an accessory, step it up Go for a more substantial piece next time. Why not add a classic camel coat or a knitted jumper to your wardrobe next? Find an item that suits your style.
