Viva La Vintage!!

As you are aware from my header title, I really love vintage!! I have 50s dresses from my mum, 70s Ossie Clark dresses, 80s wear and although too young to be called vintage, pieces from the 90s too!! SATC ran from 1999 to 2004, with Carrie showcasing numerous times, vintage pieces that look totally timeless-here are some of my favourites :-)

A beautiful white vintage sundress-totally timeless!!

Another lovely vintage, my dear!!


A gorgeous vintage skirt!!

Vivienne Westwood vintage-I want it!!

I also would like the westwood sweatshirt, and that lovely skirt.

MadameDior said...

i would definitely consider pieces form the 90's vintage =] i am in complete agreement with all of the SATC pics, how fabulous is that white summer dress!@

Sharon Rose said...

Hi pamcasso-a 3 way fight, so far-haha!!

Hi madamedior-its a very interesting debate-what date constitutes vintage? Past the last 10-15 years, past that??

Siljesfashion said...

The first white dress is such a classic. I agree, all of these are in fashion today. Thats what I love about SATC. So many years later and its still in fashion. I usually watch episodes when i lack inpsiration or need a mood boost!! New Paris post today! Love Silje

Mariel said...

I LOVE the patterned skirt and the classic white dress- and by the way that green and white vintage 1950's dress you have is amazing!

Danz said...

Everytime I see that first picture I always feel the desire to get a lace parasol! I must purchase one some day, they're so lovely! The second and third outfits are really gorgeous - I love the vintage skirt!

I hope you're doing well my dear :) Have a great day!

You should showcase all ofyour vintage wardrobe! The 50s dresses and the - yum - Ossie Clark ones sounds great!!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi alicepleasance-thats so lovely, thanks!! I have links to my collections and 50s dresses and Ossie Clarks too!

p said...

love these pieces! vintage is always awesome-- if always makes me feel as though i'm wearing a piece of history--, and i only wish i had a sewing machine to better tailor the fit.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi p-yes, I feel vintage can't be beaten-it can be cheap, but great quality, unique and original! I too wish I could use a sewing machine properly-maybe one day I will make the effort to use one!!

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Oh Ms Carrie Bradshaw, I've wasted soooo many hours obsessing over her wardrobe...her clothes, shoes and literally her wardrobe - it's hugenormous!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi fashion dreamer-totally inspirational, for sure!!

Make Do & Mend said...

How we never tire of SATC!
It's great having little tasters ...and vintage debate well according to Wikipedia vintage is a generic term for all new and secondhand clothing originating from a previous era.
antique clothing is items produced before the 1920s & clothes produced from 1920s to 1980s is considerd vintage!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi kate-thanks very much for the clarification-I wasn't totally sure about the 80s, but thats good to know!!

emma said...
